This will be the comedian’s first time hosting the awards show, which will be presented on January 31.
NEW YORK, New York.— Trevor Noah, comedian and host of “The Daily Show,” will serve as the emcee for the 2021 Grammy Awards.
The Recording Academy made the announcement Tuesday, hours before revealing the list of nominees. This will be Noah’s first time hosting the Grammys, which are due out on January 31.
Earlier this year, Noah, 36, competed for a golden gramophone: The Emmy winner was nominated for best comedy album for “Son of Patricia,” but lost to Dave Chappelle.
“Despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the Grammys have refused to allow me to sing or be nominated for best pop album, I am very happy to host this auspicious event,” Noah said in a statement.
“I think as a Grammy nominee, I am the best person to offer my shoulder to all the amazing artists who don’t win that night because I also know the pain of not winning the award !! (This is a metaphorical shoulder, I’m not trying to fish for coronavirus.) See you at the 63rd GRAMMYs! ”
Alicia Keys was the most recent host of the Grammys. Past drivers include James Corden and LL Cool J.
