Trevor Noah is back to host the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.

The Recording Academy announced that the The Daily Show star will MC music's biggest night in January. "Trevor was amazing as our host for the 63rd Grammy Awards with praise from the music community, music fans and critics," Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy said in a statement. "We're so excited to welcome Trevor back to the Grammy's stage and feel fortunate to once again have him hosting what we believe will be an unforgettable evening."

The comedian reacted to the announcement during an appearance on CBS Mornings, "Why would I not want to do the GRAMMYs? First of all, it's a front-row ticket to the best music concert of all time," he said. "Because I don't care who you are, you love music. It's just your music that will be there and you get to pick and choose."

In March, Trevor made his debut at scaled-back ceremony that was pushed back due to Covid-19.
