The rapper who has been hosting the nominations concert for four years will appear on the big stage as the host this year.
LL Cool J was a big part of Grammy nominations concert in November last year, not only being the host, but also the performer and producer. It has just been announced that the rapper is slated to play the role of host again, but this time on the big show which takes place February 12 in Los Angeles.
"I'm thrilled to be part of Music's Biggest Night," LL said in a statement. "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. Great performances and great music - it's gonna be a great night!"
LL has been hosting the nominations concert since 2008. Grammy Awards, meanwhile, has not had a host since 2005 when Queen Latifah was the emcee. Other past hosts included Billy Crystal, Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O'Donnell.
The show will air live from Staples Center on CBS next month. Presenters, special segments and additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
