LOS ANGELES -

They wowed the Golden Globes crowd at the 2013 awards show. Now, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will have the opportunity to do it again.

The pair has signed on to host NBC's coverage of the Golden Globe Awards on January 12, 2014.  They've also signed a deal to return for the following year.

"Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season," Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming for NBC, said in a statement. "We're elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years."

Theo Kingma, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — the organization behind the Globes — said that the return of Fey and Poehler "ensures that the Golden Globes will once again be the biggest, best and most entertaining awards celebration of the year."

The 2013 show proved to be the highest-rated Golden Globes in six years.
