Music’s biggest night will see Alicia Keys front and center again next year.
The 38-year-old singer will become the third woman to host the Grammy Awards more than once — after Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O’Donnell — when she follows up this year’s presenting effort by fronting the spectacle again in 2020.
She said in a statement: “At first, I did think [this] year was a one-time thing, but when the opportunity came back around, there was no question about returning as host.
“[This] 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 and 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.
“[This] year was a testament to her compelling creativity, and we are thrilled that she will return to the Grammy stage as our host.”
The 62nd Grammys will take place on Jan. 26 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The nominees for the event will be announced on Nov. 20.
