The Recording Academy has announced that 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys will return as host for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. The announcement comes just days before Grammy nominees are set to be revealed on Wednesday, November 20. Last year’s ceremony was Keys’ first hosting duty for any awards program.
“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,” said Keys.
“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,” said Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan. “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 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 26, 2020, at the STAPLES Center and will be broadcast live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Streamed live on Grammy.com, the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony will be held at the Microsoft Theater at 12:30 p.m. PT.
