The 'Late Late Show' star will head to New York next year with music's biggest night.

James Corden will return as the host of the 2018 Grammys, CBS announced at its upfront presentation in New York on Wednesday, Billboard has confirmed. 


The Late Late Show star emceed the music awards show for the first time in February. Next year, the Grammys' 60th edition will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The event was last held in New York in 2003. 

Speaking with Billboard last week, Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, said, "I am a proponent of having an open mind, being willing to experiment, take risks and try things, and also mix it up and not be predictable." Apparently a new host was not one of those changes he had in mind. 

Last year, Corden replaced longtime Grammys host LL Cool J, who had hosted the ceremony for the previous five years.

The Grammy Awards will air Jan. 28, 2018, on CBS.
