The Tony-nominated recording artists will take over the 72nd annual ceremony.

Sarah Bareilles and Josh Groban may not be seasoned Broadway's veterans, but they've already been entrusted with one of the biggest gigs in town: the artists will co-host the 72nd annual Tony Awards.

Besides being Grammy-nominated recording artists, Bareilles and Groban are also Tony nominees: Bareilles is recently starred in Waitress and was nominated for best original score for composing the music and lyrics. Groban was nominated for best actor in a musical for his starring role Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.

"The Theater has completely transformed my life in every way possible," Bareilles said in a statement. "I have never felt more embraced and encouraged by a professional community, and I am so grateful for that. I feel incredibly lucky to get to spend an evening celebrating and applauding this outstanding collective of artists, friends, collaborators and creatives. It is my great honor to join my friend Josh Groban in hosting the Tonys this year, and use the opportunity to simply say a heartfelt 'thank you' to this wonderful community...in high heels, with jokes."

Groban added that he is "humbled and ecstatic to be co-hosting the Tony Awards this year with such a brilliant artist and wonderful friend, Sara Bareilles. The dedication and inspiration surrounding live theater gave me my life path as a young kid, and the warmth and support of the Broadway community has been the highlight of my career."

The 72nd annual Tony Awards will take place at Radio City Music Hall on June 10.
