James Corden parlays ‘Carpool Karaoke’ into Grammys host gig

British actor and talk show host James Corden, whose "Carpool Karaoke" segment has become a viral phenomenon, will host the Grammy Awards in February, the Recording Academy said on Tuesday. Corden's appointment to lead the music industry's most prestigious awards show ends the five-year hosting run of actor and hip-hop artist LL Cool J. "Thanks to 'Carpool Karaoke,' we've all been on some incredible rides with James, and The Recording Academy couldn't be more excited to welcome his passion and enthusiasm for music, both as an entertainer and a fan, to the Grammy stage," Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow said in a statement.
