CBS and The Recording Academy(R) announced today that James Corden, the Emmy and Tony Award-winning, multi-faceted host of CBS's THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN, will host THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS(R), marking his first year as master of ceremonies for Music's Biggest Night(R).

"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 Corden is a commanding, dynamic showman who, we believe, is perfect to host the GRAMMY Awards."

"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," said James Corden.

"James Corden's remarkable range of talents makes him a star on any screen and every stage," said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music and Live Events, CBS Entertainment. "We see it every night on CBS, every day on YouTube and audiences are still talking about his acclaimed performance hosting the Tony's last June. We look forward to bringing James' exceptional showmanship, infectious energy and his undeniable kinship with music to the GRAMMY stage. At the same time," continued Sussman, "everyone involved with the GRAMMYs tips their hats with gratitude and respect to LL COOL J for an outstanding five years as host. LL was a dynamic host who guided our broadcast to great success with charisma, gravitas and poignancy when the moment called for it. His contributions - both on-air and behind-the-scenes as our valued collaborator - will be long remembered and always appreciated."

"James Corden is a captivating host, and I have no doubt that his musical background, personal charm and comedic instincts will resonate with our audience," said executive producer of the GRAMMY(R) Awards Ken Ehrlich. "For the past five years, we've been fortunate to have had LL COOL J host our show, and I trust that James will bring the same professionalism and charisma to Music's Biggest Night."

Since he took the helm of THE LATE LATE SHOW in March 2015, the show has won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Interactive Program, achieved its highest ratings since the show's inception in 1995, and has become known for Corden's groundbreaking videos and sketches, including the viral phenomenon, "Carpool Karaoke."
