Grammy Awards Moving to a Monday: Will Still be Boring


For as long as most of us can remember, the Grammy Awards – which refers to itself as ‘Music’s The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Press RoomBiggest Night’ – has aired on the Sunday following the Super Bowl. But, it appears that organizers are looking for a change in routine.

According to a report by Variety, the 2016 edition of the Grammy Awards will air on Monday, February 15. Oh, this is also the date of President’s Day, meaning that a big chunk of the American music industry is telling the kids to ignore history and focus on what Beyonce is wearing and whose performances Taylor Swift is dancing to.

The show will once again be broadcast on CBS, likely meaning that its hosting duties will be butchered again by LL Cool J, and stars from the network’s shows will be all up in your face giving out trophies.

Apart from Kanye being Kanye after Beck won the Album of the Year Grammy earlier this year, the broadcast was an absolute snore. Only 25.3 million viewers watched the show in TV land, making it the lowest ratings for the Grammy Awards in six years.

We don’t expect a miraculous resurrection.
