Trevor Noah, the talk show host, and much-loved comedian has been roped in as the host for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. This would come as the first time that the 36 years old star of The Daily Show would be in a spot for the CBS event which is all set to go live on January 31, 2021.
This news came just hours ago before the Recording Academy dropped the list of the nominations for the show of the next year. Noah said reacting to his Grammy gig that despite the fact that he is extremely disappointed that the Grammy Awards have refused to have him sing or be nominated for the best pop album, he is thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event.
He went on to say that he thinks as a one-time Grammy nominee, he is the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who don’t win on the night because he too knows the pain of not winning the award. However, he mentioned that this is a metamorphic shoulder, and he is not trying to catch Corona.
