James Corden Taking Over As Host Of the Grammy Awards


(Radio.com) After five straight years of Grammy Awards hosting, LL Cool J is passing the baton to The Late Late Show's James Corden. The English comedian has endeared himself to viewers and YouTube subscribers with his inventive, ebullient connection to popular music: His Carpool Karaoke series has courted stars like Adele, One Direction and Jennifer Lopez.

"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 February 12," said Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow.

"He's got big shoes to fill after the magnificent run we had with LL Cool J, but James Corden is a commanding, dynamic showman who, we believe, is perfect to host the Grammy Awards." Read more here.
