Trevor Noah to return as Grammy Awards host in 2022

·1 min read

The "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah will return as host of the Grammy Awards in 2022.

Next year's award show will be held at the newly renamed Crypto.com Arena -- formerly the Staples Center -- in Los Angeles.

Noah also helmed the pandemic-delayed 63rd Grammy Awards on March 14. This continues a streak LL Cool J started in 2012, in which every host has returned for at least two consecutive stints. James Corden hosted both the 2017 and 2018 ceremonies, followed by Alicia Keys' back-to-back appearances in 2019 and 2020.

"We’re so excited to welcome Trevor back to the Grammys stage and feel fortunate to once again have him hosting what we believe will be an unforgettable evening," Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, said in a statement. He also called Noah an "amazing" host and said he garnered "praise from the music community, music fans and critics" during 2021's socially distanced ceremony.

Although the host will remain the same, things will run a little differently for next year's nominees. Last week, the Recording Academy announced some changes in the so-called "big four" categories. For first time in Grammy history, there are 10 nominees up for record of the year, album of the year, song of the year and best new artist.

Artist Jon Batiste heads into the ceremony with a leading 11 nominations. Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and H.E.R. are also top nominees, with eight nods each.

The 64th annual Grammy Awards will air Jan. 31 starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
