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.

Keys joined Corden on The Late Late Show on Wednesday night (February 6), treating viewers to a hilarious parody of A Star Is Born's "Shallow", complete with rewritten lyrics about the 2019 Grammys. "Throughout her exciting career, I have watched her become a powerful force within the music industry and beyond".
