Full story below…
The much-loved comic and host of ‘The Daily Show’ will preside over music’s biggest calendar night, which airs on January 31 2021 on CBS.
Speaking on the major engagement, Noah said in a statement:
“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. 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!”
The Recording Academy chair and interim president/CEO Harvey Mason, Jr. added:
“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.”
The news comes just hours before the hotly-anticipated nominations for the 2021 ceremony are unveiled.
Also incoming will be details surrounding the format of the show, which – like other award spectacles – is tasked with navigating the restrictions of the global health crisis.
