R&B singer Alicia Keys will be returning to the Grammys in 2020.
When it was announced that Alicia Keys would be hosting the 2019 Grammy Awards, social media reacted with mixed emotions. Some fans questioned the choice given that the singer has such a laid back personality. However, shortly after the award show aired in January, Alicia Keys received high praise for her smooth hosting skills and endless talents that she evoked on stage.
The Grammys announced today that they will be bringing back the “Fallin” singer to host for the second year in a row.
Alica Keys told Good Morning America in a statement that she was surprised when she got the offer for a second time.
Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan called Alicia a “beacon of artistry within the music community.” Keys, who is married to hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz, has come full circle as she herself won Best New Artist at the Grammys in 2002, and has since racked up 14 more of the music industry’s most prestigious awards.
The 2020 Grammys will air on January 26 on CBS. The nominees will be announced on November 20.
