Broadway alum and Late Late Show host James Corden will return to host this year's 60th annual Grammy Awards, according to Variety. Corden takes up the mantle following a gig hosting last years Grammys and a stint as the host of the 2016 Tony Awards. The yearly event is set to take place January 28.

In 2015, Corden took over The Late Late Show from previous host Craig Ferguson. He is best known to New York theatergoers for his Tony-winning performance in Richard Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors in 2012. He also performed in the 2004 Broadway cast of The History Boys and the film version of that play.

On-screen, Corden starred as the Baker in the Into the Woods film. He is a BAFTA winner for his work on his three-season BBC series Gavin & Stacey. He was honored with an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for his services to entertainment and charity by the Queen of England during the annual New Year's Honors in 2014. As part of his duties at the helm of The Late Late Show, Corden hosts the popular video series Carpool Karaoke.
