‘Voice’ Coach Just Announced As Grammy Awards Host

The Voice / Facebook

The Golden Globes not only kicked off awards season for film and television, but also for the music industry. The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 10 and a familiar face was just announced as the host!

We have to admit – one of our all-time favorite shows to watch is The Voice. Not only do we get to watch incredible singers perform every week, we also have become huge fans of each of the coaches, even if they aren’t country singers!


Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have been staples of the show since its inception. Other coaches that have sat in the famous red chairs include Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Shakira, Alicia Keys, Usher, and now, John Legend.


It was revealed on Tuesday (Jan.15) that one of our favorite Voice coaches was selected to host the Grammy Awards this year, and it is none other than Alicia Keys! 

Keys recorded herself getting a call from her manager, who asked her, “What would you say if I told you that you have a chance to host the whole damn thing?

Wait, what? Are you serious?” Keys asked him in disbelief. She started dancing in celebration and yelling, “Yeah!”

We will definitely tune in to watch Keys host, but also to see who will win in the country categories! Check out the country nominees below!
