Third time’s the charm: Emmy Award-winning comedian Trevor Noah will return as master of ceremonies for the 2023 GRAMMYs, Music’s Biggest Night.
GRAMMY-nominated comedian, actor, author and former TV host Trevor Noah graced the GRAMMYs stage as master of ceremonies back in 2021 and 2022. Now, he’s going to bring his formidable, Emmy-winning talents back to host the 2023 GRAMMYs, which take place Sunday, Feb. 5, and will broadcast live on the CBS Television Network and stream live and on-demand on Paramount+ at 8-11:30 p.m. ET/5-8:30 p.m. PT from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
Noah, who recently left his post as host of “The Daily Show,” confirmed the news on his social media. Noah was also featured on the cover of this year’s Billboard GRAMMY Voter Guide issue, released this morning.
2023 marks Noah’s third consecutive year hosting the GRAMMYs; he will also serve as a producer on the show.
“I’m enjoying the fact that we’re juggling flaming swords,” Noah told Billboard of his experience hosting the GRAMMYs. “Just putting it all together, combining different genres, getting the musicians in sync with each other and the audience, keeping the audience in tune with what’s happening. One of my favorite things about the GRAMMYs as a whole is it is one of the few places where you get to experience artists in their rawest element, which is performing their music live … there’s nothing like it. You develop a deep appreciation for what these people are doing beyond just the music that they make.”
The eligibility period for the 65th GRAMMY Awards is Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 – Friday, Sept. 30, 2022. All eligible awards entries must be released within this timeframe.
