The 2019 Grammy Awards (Hosted By Alicia Keys )Hip Hop & R&B Winners Of The Night! Cardi B, H.E.R., & More!

 Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz

The 2019 Grammy Awards tired their best to try, and mend the broken relationship with urban music. Hip Hop and R&B haven’t had the best dealing with the Grammy board and producers, so they figured they have Alicia Keys host to bring us back in. I liked her as a host, and she has a long history with the show so it was fitting.
