G.O.A.T. rapper LL Cool J is back as emcee of "music's biggest night" for the fourth year in a row, and in a word, he's "thrilled."

"The performances and moments you see on the Grammy stage are nothing less than amazing throughout the years and this year's show is shaping up to be one you will never forget," he said in a statement from the Academy. 

The NCIS: Los Angeles star has kept the show flowing for 10 years now, including every year since 2012.

"As both a Grammy-winning recording artist and an accomplished actor, LL Cool J's wide range of talent, dynamic personality and charismatic energy make him the perfect choice to host the Grammy Awards," Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow said. "We are honored to have him back."

LL picked up his first Grammy in 1992 with "Mama Said Knock You Out," and was awarded a second in 1997 for "Hey Lover," among his many nominations. "I'm thrilled to again be part of music's biggest night," he said.

The 57th Annual Grammy Awards are slated to air live on CBS from L.A.'s Staples Center, Sunday, Feb. 8.
