"The performances and moments that take place on the GRAMMY stage are awesome in so many ways for the audience and artists alike," the 47-year-old said in a statement. "I'm honored once again to host Music's Biggest Night as we celebrate the talented music creators of today. It's going to be an incredible night and I'm excited to share this experience with the world."

This year's batch of performers and presenters haven't yet been announced, but the awards ceremony is already shaping up to be a star-studded affair. Kendrick Lamar leads the pack of contenders with 11 nominations, while Taylor Swift and The Weeknd each scored seven noms.
