Trevor Noah is returning to the GRAMMYs! The Daily Show host is gearing up to helm music's biggest night on Sunday -- all the way from Las Vegas, baby!

"First of all, it's an honor," Noah shared in interviews ahead of the big night. "I mean, hosting the GRAMMYs one time, it is a lifetime achievement. Hosting it twice is an opportunity to mess things up, so it's terrifying, it's exciting, it's an honor and most importantly, I think it's a celebration, because the first one was deep in the pandemic and now cases are going down, people are getting back together, we're gonna have an audience and I'm really excited to share it with people in the crowd."

While Noah said he appreciated the "intimacy" of the 2021 GRAMMYs -- where the performances took place inside on a sequestered soundstage, while nominees received their awards on a socially-distanced outdoor stage -- he admitted that he's excited for the whole show to be back under one roof this year.

"Whenever people ask me what performances I'm most excited to see, I realize that my answers are almost always lies, because I haven't yet seen the performances," he joked. "I have ideas of who I think I want to see in my head, but then I'm always surprised on the night. Last year was a perfect example of that... You don't know who's gonna bring something up, you don't know who's gonna do something different, you don't know who's gonna roll out a giant bed and twerk on it, so yeah, this year I'm excited to see anybody on stage because that's what makes the GRAMMYs amazing is it's basically the year's biggest all-around concert: Everything country, hip-hop, jazz, whatever it is everything, on one stage, which is what I love."

The Recording Academy and CBS announced back in December that Noah would be returning for this year's 64th annual ceremony.

"Trevor was amazing as our host for the 63rd GRAMMY Awards with praise from the music community, music fans and critics," said Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy. "We're so excited to welcome Trevor back to the GRAMMYs stage and feel fortunate to once again have him hosting what we believe will be an unforgettable evening."

"Trevor brought his trademark talent and versatility to last March's GRAMMYs," agreed George Cheeks, President and CEO, CBS and Chief Content Officer, News & Sports, Paramount+. "And we can't wait for him to host the event on CBS and Paramount+ again this year."

Noah also noted at the time that he was excited the 2022 ceremony will be "the full show," unlike the 2021 event, which had many restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It was really fun. It was a great team. I was just lucky to be a part of it. I guess we had such a good time that we were like, 'Imagine if we had people there. How much more fun would we have had?'" the Daily Show star said. "We're going to be back in 2022. Hopefully it's going to be the full show, everybody's gonna be there. We're excited to celebrate a record night, and I'm lucky to host."

As for the artists who will be honored at the ceremony, Jon Batiste leads the nominations with 11 nods, Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, and H.E.R. each earned eight, and Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo nabbed seven a piece.

The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place on Sunday, April 3, at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT and broadcast live on CBS. Follow along at for everything you need to get ready for music's biggest night, including how to watch, GRAMMY performers and more.
