Comedian, Trevor Noah is set to the host the 2021 Grammy Awards, the recoding academy has announced.
The gig marks the first time The Daily Show host has served as the master of ceremonies for the Grammys, or any of the other major awards shows.
“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!”
