CBS’ “Late Late Show” host James Corden is set to host the 59th annual Grammy Awards, according to CBS who made the announcement on Tuesday.
The late night star known for “Carpool Karaoke” will replace LL Cool J, who has hosted the awards show for the past five years.

Corden could not be happier about the honor and said, “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.”
