THE "52ND ANNUAL GRAMMY(R) AWARDS" WILL ROCK LOS ANGELES' STAPLES CENTER LIVE, JAN. 31, 2010 ON CBS
The 52nd ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS, Music's Biggest Night, will rock the Los Angeles' Staples Center LIVE on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010, (8:00-11:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
To accommodate an earlier airdate, the eligibility year for the 52nd ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS will be shortened by one month (Oct. 1, 2008 - Aug. 31, 2009). The date for the GRAMMY nominations announcement - which showcases GRAMMY Award finalists and the years' best and brightest in music as voted on by The Recording Academy - will be reported shortly.
"We are delighted to host the world's premiere music event in our hometown again, especially with the newly-opened GRAMMY Museum in our backyard," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "As always, GRAMMY Week will kick off with events that showcase various genres of music, educational programs and charitable initiatives. We also look forward to working on another remarkable GRAMMY telecast with the City of Los Angeles and our great partners at CBS and Staples Center."
"Music's biggest night on America's most watched Network always creates memorable moments for television," said Jack Sussman, CBS Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events. "We look forward to doing it again with our partners at The Recording Academy."
"The GRAMMY Awards are known for their once-in-a-lifetime musical moments," "We look forward to building on the success of this year's show to make the 52nd telecast even more memorable."

11 months for the eligibility year, if they keep that way there will be a time (in like, 10 years or somethin') when the Grammy's will be in January but only with records released up to what, january of the previous year =S

Honey, if she can get a nomination for Candyman, she can get a nom for anything!
"Candyman" actually was a decent vocal performance on her part, even if the song wasn't a hit. I'm not sure how her label is going to handle things this time around. If the material is truly more electronic sounding, then they might want to opt for the dance categories instead. I think they should have done that with "Keeps Gettin' Better" this past year. It would have had a better shot getting nominated for Best Dance Recording opposed to Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (which was just too competitive this time around).

I think U2 will do well with rock categories but won't win any general categories...they might be nominated. If Green Day's album is as good as AI, they should get an AOTY nod.
I'm really hoping Kanye is up for his 4th AOTY nod for 808 - I think it's his best album so I'd love him to win though I doubt it.
Is Lil Wayne releasing a rap album this year? Maybe without him and Kanye in the rap field, Lupe could win Rap Album or Song, although Jay-Z's album has a ton of hype and Eminem is making his comeback.
