LOS ANGELES, March 13 (UPI) -- Organizers of the 52nd annual Grammy Awards show in Los Angeles say they have set the date for the 2010 prize presentation.

The event billed as "music's biggest night" is to take place Jan. 31 at the Staples Center. It is to air live on the CBS Television Network. This year's show took place Feb. 8.

To accommodate an earlier air date, the eligibility year for the 52nd annual event will be shortened by one month -- Oct. 1, 2008, through Aug. 31, 2009. The date for the Grammy nominations announcement is expected to be scheduled soon.

"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/chief executive officer of The Recording Academy. "As always, Grammy Week will kick off with events that showcase various genres of music, educational programs and charitable initiatives."

"Music's biggest night on America's most watched network always creates memorable moments for television," added Jack Sussman, CBS executive vice president of specials, music and live events. "We look forward to doing it again with our partners at The Recording Academy."
