James Corden will host the 2017 Grammy Awards. The Late Late Show host takes over from LL Cool J, who has hosted the show over the past five years.
Speaking about the announcement, James said:
“I am truly honoured 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.”
Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich added, “James Corden is a captivating host, and I have no doubt that his musical background, personal charm and comedic instincts will resonate with our audience. For the past five years, we’ve been fortunate to have had LL Cool J host our show, and I trust that James will bring the same professionalism and charisma to Music’s Biggest Night.”
Corden's 'Carpool' Karaoke' segment on 'The Late Late Show' has featured some of music's biggest stars, including Adele, Chris Martin, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder.
