James Corden to return as GRAMMY host
You can add host to the list of details confirmed for Music's Biggest Night in 2018.
James Corden will reprise his role as host for the milestone 60th GRAMMY Awards, which will take place Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York, as previously announced by The Recording Academy.
Whether it was his unforgettable opening show rap, rooting on Bruno Mars from the audience during his Prince tribute performance or his "Sweet Caroline" celebrity Carpool Karaoke bit, Corden drew praise for his first tour of hosting duties at the 59th GRAMMY Awards, which garnered an audience of more than 26 million viewers, a 4 percent increase from the previous year's telecast.
The Tony winner is currently in the midst of his second season as the host for CBS' "The Late Late Show With James Corden." The show, which has spawned viral segments such as Carpool Karaoke, has won two Emmys for Outstanding Interactive Program and Outstanding Variety Special.
Corden will become the 10th personality to host multiple GRAMMY Awards telecasts, following Andy Williams, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, Billy Crystal, Garry Shandling, Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Jon Stewart, and LL Cool J.
