“Alicia is one of those rare artists who meld true musical genius with heartfelt emotional lyrics to create a unique approach to everything she does. We have no doubt that she’ll bring all of that as she guides millions of GRAMMY viewers through what we believe will be a very special show in February,” said longtime Grammy Awards Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich in a statement.
This will be the first time Keys has hosted the show.
The 2019 Grammys are set to air live Feb. 10 on CBS from the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
