Don’t call it a comeback, he’s been here for years. The 58th Grammy Awards have announced that LL Cool J will host next year’s show in February.

This will be the fifth consecutive year that LL Cool J has hosted the Grammys. His stint began back in 2012 with the 54th Grammy Awards, when he became the show’s first host in seven years, making the “Mama Said Knock You Out” rapper the only person to host the Grammys in a decade.

Since last year’s show, LL Cool J has taken on another hosting duty on the hit Spike series Lip Sync Battle. Will we see some celebs throw down in a lip sync face-off on the Grammys stage this year? Tune in on Monday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
