Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that South African-born comedian Trevor Noah hosted the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, 14 March.
This was the first time that the host of The Daily Show took on the role of presenting the world’s most prestigious music event. His debut was a big success, if reactions online are anything to go by.
During his monologue, Noah cracked a few jokes and concluded by saying:
“Tonight, we’re hoping that this is all about what 2021 can be, full of joy, new beginnings and coming together — never forgetting what happened in 2020, but full of hope for what is to come.”
Trevor Noah trended on Twitter all through the night as people shared their thoughts about him.
Instagram user CulpritEnter said:
