Alicia Keys will host the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020.
Keys, 38, also hosted the 2019 Grammy Awards. Jack Sussman, Executive VP of music and live specials at CBS Entertainment, called Alicia "the ultimate musically credible MC and talent who brings everything you’d want to hosting big event television."
Alicia, winner of 15 Grammy awards, says she didn't hesitate to accept the honor.
"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 of the Grammy Awards. 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."
Skeptics griped that the mother of two sacrificed her youngest son, Genesis, 4, to curry favor with liberal Hollywood.
Many viewers thought Genesis was simply too young to make such a life-altering decision, and that Alicia encouraged him to explore his sexuality to appease Hollywood liberals.

"Whatever happened to tonka trucks and baseball bats etc for a 4yr old. Dear Parents it's time to do better. We are who God created boy, girl, man and woman and we can't change that and it's definitely not up for debate."
