The 63rd GRAMMY Awards are directly around the corner, broadcasting Sunday, Jan. 31, on CBS, and the nominees for the 2021 Grammy Awards were uncovered during a Livestream held Tuesday by the Recording Academy’s interval president and CEO Harvey Mason Jr. 

The Recording Academy has reported “The Daily Show” host and GRAMMY-nominated comedian Trevor Noah as host of the 63rd GRAMMY Awards. This will be the first run through Noah will have Music’s Biggest Night.

“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. “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!”
