British star James Corden will host the 2017 Grammy Awards, it has been announced.
The actor and comedian, who hosts The Late Late Show on US television, replaces rapper LL Cool J, who has presented the show since 2011.
Corden’s appointment comes off the back of his successful Carpool Karaoke series, which has featured stars like Adele, Elton John and Lady Gaga.
The former Gavin and Stacey star said he was “truly honoured”.
“It’s the biggest, most prestigious award show in music and I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such an incredible night,” he added.
The winners of the 2017 Grammy Awards will be revealed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday 12 February.
