He's back for another year of laughs. According to E! News, James Corden will host the 2018 Grammy Awards, and I couldn't be more excited. And while this is great news, all I can hope is that he'll bring his hilarious and ever-entertaining Carpool Karaoke back to next year's awards ceremony.
The 38-year-old comedian announced his big return during a panel at the CBS Upfronts in New York City on Wednesday, according to E! News. Honestly, I'm not surprised to hear the late-night host earned another shot at the gig, given his performance during last year's show. His in-audience rendition of the Carpool Karaoke segment was a surefire winner. Corden always has some type of trick up his sleeve, and I bet that the upcoming ceremony will feature a bigger and better extension of the skit, as a means to entertain the star-studded audience and amuse at-home viewers yet again.
During his 2017 Grammys performance back in February of this year, Corden jumped into a cardboard cutout vehicle as celebs such as Jennifer Lopez, Neil Diamond, Faith Hill, John Legend, and Jason Derulo joined to sing a rendition of Diamond's hit "Sweet Caroline." Things got especially endearing when 5-year-old Blue Ivy Carter jumped into the fun toward the end of the song and completely stole the spotlight.
The Grammys will make its much-awaited return to New York City for its 60th anniversary after spending the past 15 years in Los Angeles. The 2018 festivities will reportedly take place in the city's Madison Square Garden, according to Variety.
It all seems so far away right now, but I really can't wait to see what's going to happen next year. And with no further details to explore, I guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed in hopes of a Grammy Carpool Karaoke reboot.
