      "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 Feb. 12," said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow. "He's got big shoes to fill after the magnificent run we had with LL Cool J, but James is a commanding, dynamic showman who is perfect to host the Grammy Awards."
      "I am truly honored to be hosting the Grammys next year," said Corden. "It's the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night."
