South African comedian and show host, Trevor Noah has been nominated to host the 63rd biggest music awards scheme, the Grammys.
The event which is expected to come on 31st January, 2021 is to be hosted by the versatile comedian, according to the Recording Academy.
“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,” Noah said in a statement.
Noah also made a light statement that he will be a shoulder to lean on in case a nominee doesn’t win an award because he knows how it feels to lose at that stage.
“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.
Harvey Mason jr., chair and interim president/CEO of the Recording Academy, 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.”
