Alicia Keys Is Hosting the Grammys Again, People

Alicia Keys is coming back for another serving of Grammys hosting.

That’s right. Today, the Recording Academy announced that the 38-year-old 15-time Grammy-winner is slated to host the 2020 Grammy Awards for the second year in a row. Keys is now the third woman and the first female musician to host the Grammys more than once. Keys celebrated the news with a funny meme (above) poking fun at the fact that she’ll be hosting yet again.

In case you missed it, Keys crushed her Grammys hosting gig last year. The host played two sets of keys and covered ‘Killing Me Softly” by Roberta Flack, “Lucid Dreams” by Juice Wrld, “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole, “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon, “In My Feelings” by Drake, “Boo’d Up” by Ella Mai, “Doo Wop (That Thing)” by Lauryn Hill, and Keys and Jay-Z’s song “Empire State of Mind.” The fact that she was barefoot made it even more impressive. She was also joined on stage by Michelle Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez and did an incredible duet with Smokey Robinson to “Tracks of my Tears.” Suffice it to say, it was a memorable night and now we get to relive it.

Keys will join Gayle King on Wednesday, November 20, to announce the nominees for the top Grammys categories on CBS This Morning and will take the Grammys stage on Sunday, January 26, to host.

Our only question: Will her duo of pianos return? We sure hope so.
