After seven years with a no-host format, the Grammys will have an emcee — LL Cool J. here hasn’t been an official host of the actual awards show since Queen Latifah hosted in 2005. Mr. Smith had this to say, “I’m thrilled to be part of Music’s Biggest Night…I will always have fond memories of my first Grammys Awards and to now be hosting the Grammy show in the company of so many other incredible artists, is a dream come true.”.

The Grammys will be broadcast on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
