Aday after fellow latenight host Jimmy Kimmel was announced as the Oscars host for the second consecutive year, The Late Late Show host James Corden (right) has also been tapped to lead next year’s Grammy awards once again. Corden, 38, will host the 2018’s biggest music night after making his successful debut at the ceremony this February. The news was made official on Wednesday according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 60th edition of Grammys will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City next year
Los Angeles based, Corden, who has also in the past hosted the Tony Awards (for excellence in theatre), has regularly showcased his musical fluency on his popular talk show, which has the segment Carpool Karaoke, in which he and his musical guests sing along to their songs whilst driving on a planned route.
During the Grammys last year, Corden, in his opening monologue took potshots at Donald Trump, rapping, “with President Trump, we don’t know what comes next”. The highlight of the night was the comedian bringing his signature musical segment to the Grammys stage, leading a sing-along with stars including Jennifer Lopez, John Legend and Keith Urban. The 60th Grammy Awards will air January 28 next year.
