Guess who's back: Trevor Noah tapped to host the Grammy Awards again
Los Angeles, California - For the second time in a row, Trevor Noah is headed back to helm the Grammys.
The Daily Show comedian will host the 2022 music awards show, CBS announced on Wednesday, following his starring role at the ceremony earlier this year.
"Trevor was amazing as our host for the 63rd Grammy Awards with praise from the music community, music fans and critics," Harvey Mason Jr, chief executive of the Recording Academy, said in a statement. "We’re so excited to welcome Trevor back to the Grammys stage and feel fortunate to once again have him hosting what we believe will be an unforgettable evening."
The 2021 show was postponed and played out as an odd ceremony due to Covid-19 restrictions, with just performers and nominees in the building. It’s unclear how the upcoming awards will be presented.
Jon Batiste, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert bandleader, leads the pack with 11 nominations, while Justin Bieber, HER, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, and Olivia Rodrigo cleaned up this year's nods behind him.
"Excited to be back," Noah wrote on Instagram on Wednesday, which was accompanied by a TikTok video of him doing a celebratory dance.
The 63rd Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 31 from 8 to 11:30 PM EST on CBS and Paramount+.
