GRAMMYs/Nov 24, 2020 - 06:45 pm

Updated Jan. 5, 2021.

The Recording Academy has announced "The Daily Show" host and GRAMMY-nominated comedian Trevor Noah as host of the 2021 GRAMMYs on Sunday, March 14. This will be the first time Noah will host 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!"

"With a knack for keeping viewers engaged and entertained, Trevor is the perfect choice to lead us through what's sure to be an incredible evening full of music, unforgettable moments, unity and inspiration," Harvey Mason jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy, said. "He is a dynamic host, comedian and personality, and we're thrilled to welcome him to the GRAMMY stage as host of Music's Biggest Night for the first time."

"Trevor's comedy talents, engaging energy and unique perspective make him the perfect host for the GRAMMYs," said CBS Entertainment Group President and Chief Executive Officer George Cheeks. "At the same time, it's very exciting to have one of our biggest ViacomCBS stars center stage for one of CBS' marquee events. 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 announcement comes hours before today's 2021 GRAMMYs nominations livestream on GRAMMY.com starting at 9 a.m. PT / noon ET.

The 63rd GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, March 14, on the CBS Television Network and the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony will be streamed live on GRAMMY.com.

Above all, she’s ruminating on the often unspoken rapport musicians share.

"It feels so good to be on set and see people around," a grinning Carlile says in the latest episode of Backstage At The 63rd GRAMMYs. "That’s one of the things I love about the music business the most, is that everybody has these artistic threads that chain us all together."

Carlile, who also performs in the country rockers The Highwomen, goes on to note that the GRAMMYs' celebratory nature is a peer-to-peer phenomenon. "Nothing feels better than getting recognized by other people that you admire," she continues, "and getting to show other people that you’re recognizing their work."
