The Grammys have tapped Late Late Show host
He replaces another CBS star, rapper-turned-NCIS Los Angeles star
One thing is for sure: the announcement guarantees a memorable "Carpool Karaoke" segment for Grammy week.
And don't think the Recording Academy hasn't thought of that.
“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,” Recording Academy President and CEO
“I am truly honored to be hosting The Grammys next year. It’s the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night," Corden said.
With the announcement, Corden is already halfway through the EGOT of awards-show hosting checklist. He already hosted the Tonys this summer. And with his network next in rotation to host the Emmys, Corden might cross off No. 3 before the year is out.
Grammy nominees will be announced Dec. 6.
