The 59th Annual Grammy Awards has found a host in "The Late Late Show" star, James Corden. He will replace rapper LL Cool J, who has hosted it for the last five years.
James Corden has a major connection to music, as he has won a Tony Award and has made his segment, "Carpool Karaoke," a huge success both on television and the internet.
“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 Feb. 12,” Recording Academy President CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement. “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.”
The Grammy Awards will air Feb. 12, 2017 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
