The pandemic forced us to delay and even cancel so many of our plans. While the world battled for their lives, entertainment and music festivals had to be delayed too. Award shows like the 2020 Emmys had a virtual format that you could only watch on TV with a cable connection like the Spectrum TV packages. There was no possibility of arranging social events with huge gatherings but now the world seems to be getting back to normal.
Live music and huge gatherings like the Oscars, Grammys, and Coachella have all already happened in 2022.
