It's official: The Grammys are being moved to 4/3 and will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The Recording Academy confirmed the rumors on 1/18 and reiterated that the show would be hosted by Trevor Noah.

As we noted previously, the 4/3 date offers CBS the best opportunity to cross-promote the show with the NCAA basketball finals, which now flank Music’s Biggest Night.

The dates and locations for the Clive Davis and MusiCares events remain TBD. We’re told that the options being considered include staging these galas in Vegas during Grammy week; holding them in Los Angeles that week; and holding them the week after Grammys in L.A. The back and forth over the various possibilities is sure to create much Sturm und Drang.

The CMT Awards, previously scheduled for 4/3, will be moved to a future date.

A 73-year-old retiree from Indiana with a giant plastic cup full of nickels could not be reached for comment.

Stay tuned.
