Trevor Noah will host the 2024 Grammy Awards, which are set for Feb. 4. The comedian made the announcement on his Spotify podcast What Now? With Trevor Noah early on Thursday (Dec. 14).
“I’m hosting the Grammys. I’m excited about that, yeah,” he said on the podcast. “It’s a lot of fun. I enjoy the Grammys because I get to watch the show in person and then experience and comment on it in person while it’s happening.”
This will be the fourth consecutive Grammy telecast that Noah has hosted. As we learned when the nominations were announced on Nov. 10, Noah is also a current Grammy nominee for best comedy album for I Wish You Would. Noah is only the fifth Grammy host who was nominated that same year. And he could become just the second Grammy host to win a Grammy during a show he or she hosted. The first was Kenny Rogers, who won best country vocal performance, male for “The Gambler” on the 1980 telecast.
Noah received his first Grammy nod four years ago for his album Son of Patricia, which was a finalist for best comedy album. But he didn’t host that year; he took over the following year. (Alicia Keys hosted the show where he was a winner.)
Noah will also serve as a producer of the 66th annual Grammy Awards, which will be produced by Fulwell 73 Productions for the Recording Academy for the fourth consecutive year. Ben Winston, Raj Kapoor and Jesse Collins are executive producers.The show will be broadcast live from Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on CBS from 8-11:30 p.m. ET/5-8:30 p.m. PT and will be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
Noah, 40, is best known for hosting Comedy Central’s The Daily Show from 2015-22. He won a Primetime Emmy in 2017 for a hosting a spin-off show, The Daily Show – Behind the Scenes, which was voted outstanding short form variety series.
