2019 Grammys host and singer, Alicia Keys, gave a preview of the ceremony on Thursday by rolling out the red carpet and dancing while Trombone Shorty played funk music with bandmates.
The multiple award winner was all smiles as she was joined by Grammys CEO Neil Portnow, show producer Ken Ehrlich and others for a toast at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, where the prestigious ceremony is scheduled to take place this Sunday, February 10.
Speaking on Thursday, Keys hinted that the ceremony “will be about the celebration and the power of music.”
“There’s a sense of community that I want to bring to the stage,” Keys said. “So many times you come to these things as an artist and you’re juggling so many things and there’s so much pressure on you. I would love to ensure the peace and the good energy in the room so that our shoulders can all drop and we can feel the true blessing of having music as a universal language.”
With 15 Grammys awards on her shelf, Keys who is hosting the show for the first time takes over from James Corden who hosted in 2017 and 2018 after taking over from longtime host LL Cool J.
“We’re all very excited, and the energy you’re going to feel is far different than anything you’ve ever felt,” Keys said.
