The 2018 Grammy Awards are here and James Corden returns as the host. This year’s red carpet may be a bit hurried because of several factors. The awards show was moved to New York City and it’s January, which means it’s cold outside. In addition, the show was moved from February to this month because of the Winter Olympics scheduling. Another issue is the weather, which is supposed to a bit rainy in the NYC area. So, celebrities may be hustling down the red carpet faster than usual in order to stay warm or keep out of the rain.
