Best new artist nominees for 2019 Grammys

Fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys will host the 61st annual Grammys Sunday, Feb. 10. It will be her first time emceeing music's biggest night, broadcasting live on CBS from Los Angeles, and notably she'll be the first woman to do so in more than a decade.

Drake and Kendrick Lamar lead the nominations in the biggest categories, both earning nods for record, album and song of the year. But many of this year's top categories are dominated by women.

After backlash over the lack of female nominees last year, 2019 sees mostly young women in the best new artist category and five women competing with three men for album of the year.

"I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I'm going to bring that vibe and energy," Keys said in January when the Recording Academy tapped her as host. "I'm so excited to be the master of ceremonies on the biggest night in music and celebrate the creativity, power and magic. I'm especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year! It's going UP on Feb. 10!"

How to watch the Grammys

Who's hosting the Grammys?

This will be Alicia Keys' first time hosting the ceremony — which is returning to the West Coast this year — but it won't be her first time on the Grammy stage. She has won 15 Grammys in her career.

"A dynamic artist with the rare combination of groundbreaking talent and passion for her craft, Alicia Keys is the perfect choice as host for our show," said Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy. "Throughout her exciting career, I have watched her become a powerful force within the music industry and beyond. As an artist who speaks to the power of music for good, a role model, and a spokesperson for change, we are thrilled to have her on board for what's sure to be an unforgettable Grammy Awards."

Keys posted a video announcing the hosting gig to her YouTube channel. The video shows her breaking the news to her family, including her husband Swizz Beatz, a Grammy winner in his own right, whom she appears to have awakened.

"Congratulations," he said. "But you could have waited till I got dressed."
