Trevor Noah may be leaving The Daily Show behind, but he is not ready to cut ties with The Recording Academy just yet. For the third time, he will step in as the master of ceremonies on one of the biggest nights in all of entertainment. Multiple outlets have confirmed that Noah will in fact host the 65th Grammy Awards on February 5, 2023 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California.
“I don’t think it’s normal to host it once, so I don’t have a great frame of reference for this. It is thrilling. For me, it’s a cheat code because I’m a fan of almost all the people who are there. It has also been interesting because of the journey,” Noah told Billboard.
“The first one was [during] COVID-19, and it was a completely different way to make the show. And then the next one was in Las Vegas because of the restrictions [in Los Angeles], and that was a different type of show. Now it’s exciting [because] it’ll be the first one for me back in L.A. — that’s hopefully not just normal, but different for the right reasons.”
In addition to hosting the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, Noah will also be embarking on the “Off The Record” tour in 2023. Stopping in more than two dozen cities, Noah will share his “revelations about learning to speak German, modern communication, and his love for curry.” Things will kick off on January 20, 2023 in Atlanta, Georgia at The Fox Theater before making his way through Baltimore, Boston, Nashville and several other cities before ending things in San Francisco on December 3, 2023 at The Masonic.
