Trevor Noah is hosting the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards in 2021.

The Daily Show comic, 36, announced the exciting news in a statement as he gears up to present music's biggest night on January 31st next year;

"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!"

Trevor added;

(This is a metaphorical shoulder, I'm not trying to catch Corona)." "See you at the 63rd Grammys!"

It would be the first time Trevor will be hosting the Grammy Awards, which will be on CBS.

CBS Entertainment CEO, George Cheeks said;

"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."

Cheeks added:

"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."

The 2021 Grammy awards will look a little different due to the ongoing Corona- Virus pandemic.
