The host for the Grammy Awards this year is comedian and former “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah. Noah is no stranger to hosting, as he emceed music’s biggest night the previous two years.
“It is thrilling. For me, it’s a cheat code because I’m a fan of almost all the people who are there. It has also been interesting because of the journey,” Noah told Billboard. “The first one was [during] COVID-19, and it was a completely different way to make the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions [in Los Angeles], and that was a different type of show. Now it’s exciting [because] it’ll be the first one for me back in L.A. — that’s hopefully not just normal, but different for the right reasons.”
