The multitalented star has been officially announced as the 2019 Grammys’ host. The news were confirmed by CBS Tuesday. 

The 37-year-old musician is more than confident when it comes to hosting the 61st annual ceremony and is bent on making the night a true celebration of music. 

“This is my first time. I am thrilled!” the 37-year-old star told Entertainment Tonight. “It’s a little bit of a second home to me. And I feel so blessed to be able to be coming now, just in support of so many amazing people that are honored — especially so many women that are [going to be] honored — and are gonna be celebrated that night.”

Keys has won fifteen awards herself but this will be the first time she’ll take the stage as the show’s host. Despite that, she isn’t looking for any advice from former emcees. 

“No, I don’t need any advice from them,” the singer declared with confidence. “It’s gonna be a vibe. We’re gonna have an amazing time,” she added. 

Keys is taking over as host form James Corden who served as emcee for the past two years.

“Alicia is one of those rare artists who melds true musical genius with heartfelt emotional lyrics to create a unique approach to everything she does,” executive producer Ken Ehrlich said. “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.”
