South African comedian and host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, will host the 63rd Grammy Awards.
This was announced via the official Twitter account of the Recording Academy, hours before the announcement of the nominees on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.
“We’re thrilled to welcome The Daily Show host, Emmy-winner, and Grammy-nominee Trevor Noah as the host of the 63rd GRAMMYs! We can’t think of a better person to serve as Master of Ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night,” the Recording Academy tweeted.
Reacting to the announcement, Trevor Noah said: “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!” he added.
Trevor Noah’s Son of Patricia was nominated for Best Comedy Album at the 2020 Grammys, but he lost to fellow comedian Dave Chapelle’s Sticks and Stones.
The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, January 31, 2021.
