Alicia Keys is back for another round.
After making her hosting debut earlier this year, the 15-time Grammy winner will return to host the 62nd annual Grammy Awards next year.
“At first, I did think last year was a one-time thing, but when the opportunity came back around, there was no question about returning as host,” Keys said in a statement. “Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love in the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music.”
Added Recording Academy President/CEO Deborah Dugan, “From Best New Artist recipient to Grammy Award host, Alicia Keys has been a beacon of artistry within the music community for more than two decades. Last year was a testament to her compelling creativity and we are thrilled that she will return to the Grammy stage as our host.”
Keys, who won her most recent Grammy for Best R&B Album for Girl on Fire in 2014, is gearing up to release her seventh studio album next year. Earlier this month, she released the remix to her Miguel-assisted single “Show Me Love” featuring 21 Savage.
The nominees for the 62nd annual Grammys will be announced on Nov. 20, while the show airs Jan. 26 on CBS.
