The Daily Show host and GRAMMY-nominated comedian Trevor Noah is set to host the 2021 Grammys, according to the Grammy Awards website.
The show host in a statement revealed that he is so excited to be hosting the event.
“Despite the fact that I am extremely disappointed that the GRAMMYs have refused to have me sing or be nominated for Best Pop Album, I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event,” Noah said in a statement.
“I think as a one-time GRAMMY nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award! (This is a metaphorical shoulder, I’m not trying to catch Corona). See you at the 63rd GRAMMYs!”
Harvey Mason jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy maintained that Trevor is the perfect choice to host the show.
“With a knack for keeping viewers engaged and entertained, Trevor is the perfect choice to lead us through what’s sure to be an incredible evening full of music, unforgettable moments, unity and inspiration,”
“He is a dynamic host, comedian and personality, and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the GRAMMY stage as host of Music’s Biggest Night for the first time.”
This will be the first time Noah will host the Grammy.
