Grammy Awards Take Another Bold Step Towards Irrelevance

Just when you thought that the Grammys couldn't possibly get any more thick comes this humdinger of an announcement. For some reason, The Recording Industry has decided to move the airdate of the 2010 Grammy Awards up a week, to the last week of January from the first week of February. In order to accommodate, they also moved the eligibility window up an entire month, which means that any record released after August 31, 2009, won't be eligible for a Grammy nod until 2011. Brilliant! [Pop & Hiss/LAT]
