James Corden to Host Grammys 2017!
The 38-year-old Late Late Show host will be taking over hosting duties from LL Cool J, who hosted for the past five years.
“Thanks to ‘Carpool Karaoke,’ we’ve all been on some incredible rides with James, and The Recording Academy couldn’t be more excited to welcome his passion and enthusiasm for music, both as an entertainer and a fan, to the Grammy stage on February 12,” Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow said. “He’s got big shoes to fill after the magnificent run we had with LL Cool J, but James Corden is a commanding, dynamic showman who, we believe, is perfect to host the Grammy Awards.”
“I am truly honored 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,” James added.
James did a great job hosting the 2016 Tony Awards back in June, and he’s hosted some smaller award shows as well. The Grammys will air on Sunday (February 12)!
