Media personality and comedian Trevor Noah has been announced the host for the 63rd Grammy Awards.
This comes hours before the official announcement of the full nomination list.
This will be the first time the ‘Daily Show’ host will host the award ceremony.
Noah competed for his first Grammy Award for best comedy album with “Son of Patricia,” but lost to Dave Chappelle in the 62nd GRAMMYs.
Speaking of the announcement as the host, the 36 year-old stated;
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!”
