Grammys move forward to Jan. 26 due to Super Bowl

Just like the Oscars had to get out of the way of the Winter Olympics next year, the Grammys too are seeing a shift in the calendar due to the scheduling of the biggest sports event of all — the Super Bowl. 

The next edition of music’s top awards will air on CBS on Jan. 26, 2014. That falls one week before Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 2). 

This year’s Grammys were held on Feb. 10. However, the middle weeks of next February will be dominated by coverage of the Olympicfest, which run from Feb. 7 to 23. 

The Oscars went the other way, with a move to March 2. However, that change is a temporary one as the academy also announced that the 2015 awards will be back in the shortest month with a date of Feb. 25.

Likewise, the Grammys confirmedthat this shift into January is a one-off as it revealed a 2015 date of Feb. 8.
