Back for the third year in a row, Trevor Noah is set to host music's biggest night.

"I don't think it's normal to host it once, so I don't have a great frame of reference for this," he told Billboard. "It is thrilling. For me, it's a cheat code because I'm a fan of almost all the people who are there."

This will mark Noah's first time hosting in Los Angeles; the previous two shows he emceed were held in New York City and Las Vegas.

"I am 1,000% a fan, and what I love about the Grammys is that I become a fan of a new artist every single time," the star said. "I come in and then I meet this new artist, and all of a sudden, here I am going, 'Who are the Black Pumas?' It introduces you to music that you maybe wouldn't have been [exposed to]."

The outlet also reported that Noah joins LL Cool J as the only other person to ever host the Grammys at least three consecutive times in the last 30 years.
