Trevor Noah also reacted to the news via his social media page with lots of excitement
and his usually jokes by saying:
“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.
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!”.
Trevor Noah also becomes the first African ever to be chosen to host the Prestigious
Grammy Awards and 2021 cant wait to see what he brings on the night come January

He is a dynamic host, comedian and personality, and we’re thrilled to welcome
him to the Grammy stage as host of music’s biggest night for the first time.”
