Alicia Keys, a 15-time Grammy winner, was announced Tuesday as the host of the upcoming 61st annual Grammy Awards.
It will be Keys’ first time hosting the ceremony, which will return to Los Angeles this year after a one-year move to New York to celebrate the 60th anniversary of “Music’s Biggest Night.”
“I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I’m going to bring that vibe and energy,” Keys said in a statement released through the Recording Academy. “I’m so excited to be the master of ceremonies on the biggest night in music and celebrate the creativity, power and magic. I’m especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year!”
The Grammys will be held Feb. 10 at Staples Center.
James Corden hosted the Grammys the last two years, following a five- year run of hosting by LL Cool J.
