Alicia Keys just announced this morning that she will be hosting the 2019 Grammy Awards. This will be the 15-time Grammy winners first time hosting the event.

She announced the news via her YouTube channel in a super cute video with obvious excitement. She wrote in the captions “I’m soooo EXCITED to announce that I’ll be hosting the 61st Annual Grammy Awards !! There’s so much in store and I CAN’T WAIT for y’all to see it ALL come to life 💜 Tune in on February 10th at 5PM PST / 8PM EST. Only on CBS!”

This is a big year for music as there is a notably large number of female nominees. Although Kendrick Lamar and Drake lead in Grammy nominations, female artists are dominating in the 4 major categories: Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist.

Keys told Entertainment Tonight’s, Kevin Frazier, “This is my first time. I am thrilled! 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.”

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, February 10th at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
