“We don’t just have the most diverse group of nominees in Grammys history, we also have, for the second year in a row, the least diverse host in Grammys history,” he joked.
The Late Late Show personality first hosted the awards in 2017, when he famously recreated his Carpool Karaoke sketch live during the show, leading Jennifer Lopez, Jason Derulo, Keith Urban and others in a “Sweet Caroline” singalong with Neil Diamond.
Corden, 39, attended the show at N.Y.C.’s Madison Square Garden solo, as he and wife Julia just welcomed their third child, a daughter named Charlotte, in December.
