Published Nov 24, 2020Having done away with their World Music tag, the Grammy Awards are ready to step into the future with their 2021 edition. And while the ceremonies won't have much of a live audience, the Grammys will have a new host in one Trevor Noah.
The wisecracking host of The Daily Show will take over from Alicia Keys, who previously hosted in 2019 and earlier this year.
In a statement, Noah said the following:
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 Grammys will take place on January 31.
