THE RECORDING ACADEMY
We all know how the GRAMMYs go -- the winners always thank the Academy, but who are they? Membership is a requirement to be a part of the organization. They look for the best of the best to bring diversity to the community.
Comedian and former television host of "The Daily Show", Trevor Noah, will be hosting the show. He has hosted the last two shows and will return for the third time. Seems like Trevor Noah and the GRAMMYs go together like peanut butter & jelly, orBeyoncé and Jay-Z!
