The Recording Academy has announced “The Daily Show” host and GRAMMY-nominated comedian Trevor Noah as host of the 63 GRAMMY Awards on Jan. 31. This will be the first time Noah will host Music’s Biggest Night.
The Academy tweeted last night “We’re thrilled to welcome @TheDailyShow host, Emmy-winner, and GRAMMY-nominee @TrevorNoah as the host of the 63rd #GRAMMYs! We can’t think of a better person to serve as Master of Ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night.”
Trevor expressed gratitude for his new role saying “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,”. He also added “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!”
