On February 12, late night talk show host James Corden will be hosting the Grammys. The event will feature the biggest stars in music, and Corden and the performers will be taking the stage at the Staples Center in LA.
Corden began his career working as an actor, performer, writer, and host for various shows in the UK. As he ascended the entertainment ranks, he began to get noticed in the states. He became the host of The Late Late Show, which airs on CBS, in 2015.
He’s gained fame for his Carpool Karaoke segments. He’s driven around LA with the likes of Adele, Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Mariah Carey while belting out popular tunes. These videos on YouTube have received millions of views.
As the night of the Grammys approaches, Corden is busily preparing for his prominent role. In interviews with the media, he has said that he plans on focusing more on overall fun than specific jokes or sketches. The Staples Center will be filled with musicians and industry professionals who will want to have a good time while honoring their distinguished colleagues, and it might not be the right place for the type of comedy that he’s known for.
Fans of Carpool Karaoke should be ready to see a different side of Corden. The Grammys is a tightly controlled event that packs in performances from various genres, and there probably won’t be time to include clips that show spirited karaoke singing.
