The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that it had tapped the comedian to host the Jan. 31 show just hours before announcing the list of nominees for the year. This will mark the 36-year-old’s first time hosting the biggest night in music.
今年早些时候, 诺亚参加了他的第一个格莱美奖的角逐. The Emmy winner was nominated for best comedy album with “Son of Patricia,” 但输给了Dave Chappelle.
“尽管我对格莱美唱片公司拒绝让我唱歌或提名最佳流行专辑感到失望，, 我很高兴主办这个吉祥活动,诺亚发表声明说. “我认为作为格莱美奖的一次性提名人, 我是最好的人，可以为所有那些当晚没有获奖的出色艺术家提供帮助，因为我也知道不获得奖项的痛苦! (这是一个隐喻的肩膀, 我不是想赶上电晕). 第六十三格莱美见!”
Alicia Keys hosted the 2020 格莱美奖, which saw a historical sweep from artist Billie Eilish, who became the youngest artist ever to win album of the year for her chart-topping debut, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” The record was previously set by 泰勒斯威夫特, who won the coveted golden statue at 20 years old for “Fearless” 在 2010. 然而, what loomed largest over the show was the death of NBA star Kobe Bryant, who died days earlier alongside his daughter in a tragic helicopter crash.
Past hosts include James Corden and LL Cool J.
