Alicia Keys, American singer and songwriter, will be hosting the Grammy Awards scheduled for February 10.
The ‘Girl on Fire’ singer announced the development on her Youtube page on Tuesday.
The artiste, who has won 15 Grammy awards posted it alongside the caption: ‘I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be hosting the 61st Annual Grammy Awards!!
“I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I’m going to bring that vibe and energy. There’s so much in store and I can’t wait for y’all to see it all come to life.”
The 37-year-old songstress also addressed how women have been shaking up society including them demanding an end to the disparity in the music industry.
“I’m so excited to be the master of ceremonies on the biggest night in music and celebrate the creativity, power and, magic. I’m especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year and for me, it feels like sister vibes,” she said.
“Look at all the action that’s around us: women running for office in record numbers, women banding together in the entertainment industry, women demanding an end to disparity in the music industry like equal representation on the Grammy stage.
“We were told we need to step up. Well, you feel that step up now?”
This is her first stint of hosting the show. She comes after James Corden, late-night host, who hosted the previous two editions.
