Trevor Noah is set to host the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, which will air January 31st, 2021 on CBS.

The gig marks the first time The Daily Show host has served as the master of ceremonies for the Grammys, or any of the other major awards shows. For the Grammys, the move marks a return to having a comedian head up the proceedings after Alicia Keys served as host for the past two years.

Bolstering his credentials, however, Noah does have one Grammy nomination to his name, scoring a look for Best Comedy Album last year (although he lost to Dave Chappelle).

“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!”
