The 2019 Grammy Awards are on Sunday night, February 10, but while the main event is in the evening, most of the 84 categories will be presented that afternoon during the Grammy Premiere Ceremony, which stream online during the afternoon. And the recording academy has announced that Grammy winner and current nominee Shaggy will host the ceremony.
Shaggy may best be known for his 2000 hit “It Wasn’t Me” featuring Ricardo “RikRok” Ducent, which reached number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Collaboration. But by then Shaggy was already a Grammy winner. He was awarded Best Reggae Album in 1996 for “Boombastic.” Overall, he has been nominated seven times, including a bid this year. He’s up for Best Reggae Album again for “44/876,” his collaboration album with Sting.
