LL Cool J is back!

The two-time Grammy award winner is set to return to host the 2016 Grammy Awards, which will be his fifth consecutive appearance. The Grammys will air Monday, Feb. 15, from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS.

"We are delighted to welcome back the very talented LL Cool J as our host for the 58th Grammys," said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow. "His unique expertise, both as a Grammy-winning recording artist and accomplished actor, allows him to connect with both his musical peers and the fans at home, and his dynamic personality and charismatic energy set the perfect tone for our show."

"The performances and moments that take place on the Grammy stage are awesome in so many ways for the audience and artists alike," the 2016 host said. "I'm honored once again to host Music's Biggest Night as we celebrate the talented music creators of today. It's going to be an incredible night and I'm excited to share this experience with the world."

Like every awards show, the Grammys saw its fair share of snubs and surprises. While some artists took their snubs in stride, R&B singer Omarion did not. "Even though people act like its easy to make a hit (& it's not). As an artist you look forward to being acknowledged by the game," he first tweeted. "The odds have always been against me. I constantly prove you wrong. I'll consistently do great things & you will have to celebrate me."

"This isn't a(n) 'im upset' (post to be) rant," he clarified. "This is a(n)- ok so that wasn't good enough. I'll be back. Have my Grammy's ready...The game has long changed since I was introduced to it. They want to still treat me like I'm a new to this. My moment is coming trust."

Should LL Cool J return to host the 2017 Grammys, he might have to answer to those who didn't quite make the cut this year. 

The Grammys will air Feb. 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
