“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah returns to host the Grammys


“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah returns to host the 64th Annual Grammy Awards. The announcement was made as part of a broad conversation Wednesday on “CBS Mornings.”

Noah hosted the Grammys in March, when the ceremony was held outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles to allow for social distancing.

“I just got lucky to be a part of it, you know,” Noah said on “CBS Mornings”. “And I guess we had such a great time that we were like, imagine if we had people there how much more fun we would have been, and so this year the Grammys are going to be back.”

Noah joked that as a Grammys host he had a lot of responsibility.

“Like, if I’m not there, who raises Kevin hart in his seat, you know what I mean? He said. “There are some important things I’m supposed to do that night, you know?” I provide emotional support to Jay-Z. He’s very nervous and I just say, “It’s going to be okay, Jay”, you know? “You are breaking a record. You beat Quincy Jones in the nominations. ‘ I’m here to give people the moral support they wouldn’t have. “

The Grammy Awards will air on January 31, 2022 on CBS and stream on Paramount +.

On “The Daily Show” Noah said he tries to put forward what he feels and experiences with his team.

“We talk about things at home, we talk about things with our community, and on ‘The Daily Show’ what I’m trying to do is have these conversations no matter how complicated they get. “, did he declare. “You know, like now with the vaccines, with Omicron … yeah, it’s complicated, but I’m trying to have honest conversations about it, what’s normal, what should we go back to as normal, what life do we want to live as that people, and then … how do you find the funny? “

Noah is from south africa, which reported the Omicron coronavirus variant at the World Health Organization last week. The discovery of the variant raised concerns that it may be more transmissible than other strains and that vaccines may not provide as much defense against it, leading some countries, including the United States, to impose travel restrictions on countries in southern Africa.

The restrictions drew criticism that South Africa was essentially being punished for sounding the alarm bells about the variant.

“What South Africa did was say, ‘Hey, we helped figure it out,’ and then people said, ‘Oh, so it’s yours,'” Noah said, “and it’s like,” No, no, no, we “I’m just helping to understand”, and so I think that’s part of the confusion in the world is that people don’t understand what people actually do. I feel like the scientists are doing a great job, but there has to be something like a go-between who explains to people what the scientists are finding out because it’s clear that it goes from science to the first page and everything the world is panicking. “
