Alicia Keys is returning to the GRAMMY Awards as its host for the second year in a row.

Organisers for music’s biggest calendar night announced moments ago that the 15-time GRAMMY winner will serve as master of ceremonies at the 62nd annual show.
Keys, who hosted this year’s extravaganza, said in a statement
“At first I did think last year was a one-time thing but when the opportunity came back around there was no question about returning as host of the GRAMMY Awards. Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.”
Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan added:
“From Best New Artist recipient to GRAMMY Award host, Alicia Keys has been a beacon of artistry within the music community for more than two decades. Last year was a testament to her compelling creativity and we are thrilled that she will return to the GRAMMY stage as our host. Anything can happen, you don’t want to miss it!”
The gig is a huge coup for Keys, who recently returned to the music scene with single ‘Show Me Love.’
With the GRAMMYs taking place in the thick of her campaign, it’s safe to expect her to tie-in her album roll-out with the show everyone will no doubt be watching.
The 2020 GRAMMYs airs January 26th live from the STAPLES Center on CBS at 8pm ET.
