South-African satirist and comedian Trevor Noah has been selected and named as the host of the global music awards: The Grammy Awards for the year 2021.
This was announced by The Recording Academy and CBS that host of Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning “Daily Show,” will host the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
The announcement comes hours before Tuesday’s 63rd Grammy Awards nominations live stream on GRAMMY.com.
“Even though I am extremely disappointed that the Grammys have refused to have me sing or be nominated for the best pop album, I am thrilled to be hosting this auspicious event,” said Noah.
“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!”
Trevor Noah was born on 20 February 1984 in Johannesburg, South Africa. His father, Robert, is of Swiss ancestry, and his mother, Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah, is of Xhosa ancestry. He is one of the sought-after faces on the American screens and one of the most influential people on Earth.
