Comedian Trevor Noah to Host 2021 Grammy Awards

Comedian Trevor Noah will be hosting the 2021 Grammy Awards in January, the Recording Academy has announced.

TV show host and comedian Trevor Noah will be hosting the 2021 Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy made the announcement hours before the nominees for the upcoming show were revealed. This will be Noah’s first time hosting the Grammys, which will be held January 31.

Earlier this year, Noah competed for his first Grammy Award - he was nominated for best comedy album with ‘Son of Patricia’, but lost to Dave Chappelle.

“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," Noah said in a statement.
