Ahead of the official release of the nominees list for the 2017 Grammy Awards, the host has been revealed and it’s none other than James Corden, host of The ‘Late Late Show’.
The host has officially been booked by the Recording Academy to serve as an emcee for the upcoming 59th annual Grammys on February 12, 2017.
Corden will take over from LL Cool J who hosted the awards show for the five consecutive years. “I am truly honored to be hosting The Grammys next year. It’s the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night,” the comedian said.
Aside being a host of The Late Show, Corden is well known for ‘Carpool Karaoke‘.
Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow said. “He’s got big shoes to fill after the magnificent run we had with LL Cool J, but James Corden is a commanding, dynamic showman who, we believe, is perfect to host the Grammy Awards.”
The 59th annual Grammys will take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
