    Trevor Noah is set to host the 2021 Grammy Awards

    The 36-year-old star has been announced as the person who will front the proceedings on the night of the 63rd annual Grammy Awards, which are set to take place on January 31


    In a statement, Trevor 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.”

    Trevor was previously nominated at the 2020 Grammy Awards earlier this year in the Best Comedy Album category, for his record ‘Son of Patricia’, but he lost out to Dave Chappelle’s ‘Sticks and Stones’.

    Meanwhile, Harvey Mason Jr. - who is the chair and interim president/CEO of the Recording Academy - said Trevor is the “perfect choice” to host the ceremony.

    In his own statement, he said: "With a knack for keeping viewers engaged and entertained, Trevor is the perfect choice to lead us through what's sure to be an incredible evening full of music, unforgettable moments, unity and inspiration. He is a dynamic host, comedian and personality, and we're thrilled to welcome him to the Grammy stage as host of Music's Biggest Night for the first time.”

    Whilst George Cheeks, CBS Entertainment Group president and CEO, added: "Trevor's comedy talents, engaging energy and unique perspective make him the perfect host for the Grammys.

    “At the same time, it's very exciting to have one of our biggest ViacomCBS stars centre stage for one of CBS' marquee events. With Trevor hosting and The Late Late Show's Ben Winston producing, it's yet another example of our combined company's power in music, entertainment and the biggest live events."
