Grammys are due Feb. 8 at Staples

The Recording Academy has set Feb. 8 as the date for the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, to be held once again at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Grammys have been telecast live from Staples Center since 2000, except in 2003, when the awards were held in New York.

The academy said the eligibility period for the Grammys will be Oct. 1, 2007, to Sept. 30, 2008, meaning some of the year's blockbuster releases will be recognized a year late, as October and November tend to be two of the music industry's busiest months.

Meantime, an academy spokesman said that the 30,000-square-foot Grammy Museum, located next to Staples Center at the L.A. Live entertainment complex, will open later this year.
