James Corden has recently been selected to host the forthcoming 2017 GRAMMY Awards. The Late Late Show frontman will take over for L.L. Cool J who has helmed the past five ceremonies. Longstanding executive producer of the Grammy Awards, Ken Ehrlich, had praised Corden for his “musical background” as well as his “comedic instincts” in a recent press release as per Variety. Ehrlich also commended the rapper/actor, having professed that “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.”

Moments after being picked for the honorary role, the Carpool Karaoke master stated: “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.”

The 59th Grammy Awards ceremony is slated to broadcast live from Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on February 12, 2017 at 8 p.m. ET.
