After making her debut as host earlier this year, Keys will do the honors again for the 62nd annual Grammys, airing Jan. 26 on CBS. The nominees will be announced on Nov. 20.
"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," the 15-time Grammy winner said in a statement.
"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," she said. Keys took to social media to announce the news to fans ... and to herself.
Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan added in a statement, "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."
