JAMES CORDEN TO HOST THE GRAMMYS

You have to believe there will be a Carpool Karaoke sketch on the 59th annual Grammy Awards now that James Corden has been named host. Corden replaces LL Cool J, who has been the host of the last five ceremonies.

"Thanks to Carpool Karaoke, we've all been on some incredible rides with James, and The Recording Academy couldn't be more excited to welcome his passion and enthusiasm for music, both as an entertainer and a fan, to the Grammy stage on Feb. 12," said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow. " James is a commanding, dynamic showman who is perfect to host the Grammy Awards."

Jack Sussman, executive vice president, specials, music and live events, CBS Entertainment, said “We look forward to bringing James' exceptional showmanship, infectious energy and his undeniable kinship with music to the Grammy stage. At the same time, everyone involved with the Grammys tips their hats with gratitude and respect to LL Cool J for an outstanding five years as host.”

Added Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich: "For the past five years, we've been fortunate to have had LL Cool J host our show, and I trust that James will bring the same professionalism and charisma to Music's Biggest Night." 

Corden, host CBS’ The Late Late Show since March 2015, has ridden in cars around L.A. singing with Adele, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Justin Bieber and others. We’re already wondering who will be behind the wheel when he is driven to Staples on 2/12.
