Alicia Keys Will Be Hosting The 61st Annual Grammys3 months ago by Amber Le in TV News
Earlier today, Alicia Keys announced that she will be hosting the 61st Annual Grammy Awards during a home video. The ceremony is set to take place in Los Angeles on February 10th. She took to Twitter to share the news.
“I’m soooo EXCITED to announce that I’ll be hosting the 61st Annual Grammy Awards! There’s so much in store and I CAN’T WAIT for y’all to see it ALL come to life. Tune in on February 10th at 5PM PST/ 8 PM EST. Only on CBS!”
The R&B singer has won multiple Grammys, 15 under her belt actually. In the video, you can witness the moment when she was asked to be the honorary host and it then proceeds to display her family’s embrace over the good news.
Keys is known for supporting the female level up in the music industry. She runs She Is The Music, which VIBE describes as an initiative featuring female executives, songwriters, artists, engineers, producers and publishers that focuses on reshaping the image of and providing opportunities for women in music. With the show featuring several female nominees this year, we couldn’t think of a better choice for a host.
