    James Corden has just revealed that he will once again take center stage as the host of the Grammy Awards.

    The late-night comedian announced the news during a panel at CBS' Upfronts event in New York City Wednesday--which seems appropriate given that the Grammys are moving to the Big Apple next year.

    Shortly before he hosted this year's gig--which featured sing-alongs, hilarious antics and much, much more--the Brit admitted that he was feeling the pressure to succeed as the host of the music industry's biggest night of the year.

    "I like nerves. I think nerves are good. I think you're only nervous when you want to do your best," he told CBS at the time.

    "I haven't gone to bed for like a month now where I have not been thinking about the Grammy Awards, because it means a lot to me to host it and I just don't want to let anybody down. I want the show to be a true celebration of everybody in that room," Corden added.

    It's been a big day for award show hosting announcements. Just hours before Corden spilled the details about next year's Grammy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel was announced as the host for the 2018 Academy Awards.
