Trevor Noah has already secured his next significant hosting position, the Grammys, which will be held on February 5 for the 65th time. Additionally, this comes just one week after Noah left "The Daily Show." As Noah said to Billboard, "I don’t think it’s normal to host it once, so I don’t have a great frame of reference for this. It is thrilling. For me, it’s a cheat code because I’m a fan of almost all the people who are there.” Furthermore, the awards will return to the Crypto.com Arena for the first time this year. The Los Angeles location, formerly known as the Staples Center, hosted the Grammy Awards from 1999 until the pandemic began. The biggest night in music was held outside the Los Angeles Convention Center in 2021, while this year's event was held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. According to Noah, "The first one was … a completely different way to make the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions [in Los Angeles], and that was a different type of show. Now it’s exciting [because] it’ll be … hopefully not just normal, but different for the right reasons.” Trevor-Noah

Additional details

Trevor Noah, who is 38 years old, brings a wealth of TV expertise to the Grammy event. "I’ve been lucky enough to work in television — when I count South Africa as well — for 18 years," he remarked. "I’ve been lucky enough to host crazy productions where everyone’s running around and you have to hit your marks and do different things. And most importantly — funny enough — is that I don’t take myself too seriously. I allow myself [to be] comfortable with the idea that everything could go wrong in a moment.” Moreover, because there are so many moving components at the Grammys due to all the performances, Noah has to be more quick-thinking than normal. He explained that "Sometimes [producers] don’t know where the artist is, or someone went to the bathroom at the wrong time. It’s just the craziest, unluckiest thing that will happen to you, and 99 times out of 100, it doesn’t happen. But when it does, everybody needs to breathe and keep everything aimed in the right direction. We always plan for the worst and hope for the best.” [caption id="attachment_72917" align="aligncenter" width="2000"]Trevor-Noah Getty Images for The Recording A[/caption] On another note, Noah enjoys improvising, even though the Grammys have a script. "Anyone who works with me knows I’m always going to go off the cuff," he admitted. "If something happens that wasn’t in the script and you want to comment or make a joke about it, we do, and it’s fun … We don’t know what anybody might do before or after their performance, so what’s great is to be able to respond to that … I’m enjoying the fact that we’re juggling flaming swords.” Lastly, the Grammys, according to Noah, is "one of the greatest concerts you’ll ever get the opportunity to go to," adding that for him "the most important thing is that it’s a celebration."
