Who Is Hosting?

Comedian and former host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, is set to host the GRAMMYs for the fourth consecutive year.

“I think it’s also important to acknowledge something. I’m hosting the Grammys,” he revealed during his What Now? With Trevor Noah podcast in December 2023. “I’m excited about that, yeah, it’s a lot of fun. I enjoy the Grammys because I get to watch the show in person and then experience and comment on it in person while it is happening.”

Noah, who is a two-time GRAMMY Award winner, is also nominated for Best Comedy Album for his 2022 Comedy Special, I Wish You Would.

Meanwhile, Joni Mitchell, an 18-time GRAMMY nominee and nine-time GRAMMY winner, will make history as she takes the GRAMMYs stage for the first time ever alongside Brandi Carlile.

Billy Joel will perform his recently released “Turn The Lights Back,” his first new pop song since 2007. U2 will deliver a visually-stunning performance from their Las Vegas residency at Sphere, marking the first-ever televised performance from the new Sin City venue.

Additionally, Miley Cyrus is also reportedly expected to perform during the three-and-a-half hour broadcast.

It currently remains unclear what the other artists will perform during the show.

The In Memoriam segment of the show will honor the lives of those that the music world lost this year with special tributes performances from Stevie Wonder, Fantasia Barrino, Annie Lennox, Jon Batiste and more.

Stevie Wonder will celebrate the life of the legendary Tony Bennett for his impressive contributions to music and devotion to the Great American Songbook.
