Alicia Keys revealed on social media Tuesday that she’s the host of the 2019 Grammy Awards airing next month.
The singer shared the exciting news with a video of her receiving word that she’d been tapped for the role. “Remember when the nominations for the Grammys came out and we were like, ‘Damn, this is gonna be such an exciting show this year because of all the female artists and performers.’ And we were like, damn, too bad we don’t have music until a little bit after the Grammys?” a man says to Keys over the phone in the video.
“What would you say if I told you that you have a chance to host the whole damn thing?”
Keys, off guard by the comment breaks out into a giant smile. She laughs in the clip, seemingly shocked.
“Are you serious?” she says, before celebrating with a dance.
She then shared the news with her mother and her husband, producer Swizz Beatz. We can’t wait for what she’s got cooked up!
