Grammys set Staples Center return

Music awards to take place Feb. 13 in L.A.

The Grammy Awards will return to Staples Center on Feb. 13.

Airing again on CBS, show had been pushed back to late January this year to avoid head-to-head competition with the Winter Olympics. Recording Academy prexy Neil Portnow noted the kudocast delivered the Grammys’ best ratings since 2004 and the biggest year-over-year increase in more than 20 years.

Academy also announced that the eligibility period for the 2011 awards will be Sept. 1, 2009, through Sept. 30, 2010.

This 13-month window will shift the eligibility cut-off back to the end of September; last year the academy ended eligibility in late August, prompting grumbling from artists and labels.
