Recall that, along with Oscar, the Grammy Award ceremony is considered one of the main and most important events in the entertainment industry. Among its laureates, the most outstanding musicians of our time were consistently listed annually.
Initially, the ceremony was planned to be held on January 31, but due to the raging pandemic, the organizers decided to move the Grammy Award to spring (the situation with coronavirus in Los Angeles is very tense – research suggests that today every fifth resident of Los Angeles received a positive test for coronavirus).
A feature of the award ceremony in 2021 is a large guantity of women among the nominees, which was not the case before. The South Korean mega-popular group BTS, which was first nominated for short musical career for such a prestigious music award, also became a sensation of the ceremony. By the way, another feature of the international competition was that among the nominees of this year there are performers from South Korea.
