This year’s Grammy Awards are less than two weeks away, and the more we learn about them, the more excited we are. The latest news regarding the ceremony involves Jhené Aiko who will have an important role at this year’s event—she’ll be in charge of hosting the Grammy Premiere Ceremony.

Not to be confused with the actual show, this event will also take place on March 14th, just a couple of hours prior. The Grammy Premiere Ceremony will kick off at noon PT and will see the vast majority of awards given out, before we shift attention to the main event taking place at 5 pm PT.

Aiko is expected to be present at both events since she’s competing for several Grammys this time around. She’s in the running for album of the year with Chilombo, in addition to being nominated for best progressive R&B album and best R&B performance.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcasted live on CBS, with Trevor Noah serving as the host. The list of major nominees includes Beyoncé with nine nominations, followed by Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch, and Taylor Swift with six each.
