This girl is on fire!

Alicia Keys must have made some impression earlier this year when she hosted the 61st Annual Grammy Awards because it has just been announced she'll also host the 62nd Annual Grammys, set to air January 26, 2020, and presented live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Her return to host the Grammys makes her the first female music star to host the show more than once. The nominees for the 2020 Grammys will be announced on November 20th.

In a statement released by Keys to Good Morning America, "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. Last year was such a powerful experience for me. Not only did I feel the love around the room, but I felt it from around the world and it confirmed the healing and unifying power of music."

On Alicia Keys, Deborah Dugan, Recording Academy President and CEO, had to say the following; "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."

As Dugan said, Keys is no stranger to the Grammys. She has won fifteen Grammy Awards since her debut album was released back in 2001, making her the second most recipient. She trails only to Paul Simon, who has sixteen. Overall, Keys has been nominated for a whopping 29 Grammys. In 2002 alone, after she had just burst onto the scene with her album Songs in A Minor she took home five Grammys, including New Artist, Song and R&B Song (for "Fallin'"), R&B Album and Female R&B Vocal Performance.

Earlier this month, Keys released a remix of her song, "Show Me Love" which featured 21 Savage. Keys' autobiography, entitled More Myself was originally planned for release this month, but has been pushed for March. You can find the remixed song in a recent post below from Keys' Twitter.

Don't forget to mark your calendars. The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, January 26, 2020, live at 8 PM EST from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
