The “Late Late Show” host told sy88pgw he intends to keep the night “fun,” yet won’t shy away coming from political themes if news of the day feels necessary to address.
“The Grammys are on Sunday, along with also with This particular current news cycle, we could be a different world by tonight, so the idea’s impossible to say,” Corden said when asked what role politics will play within the night. “I think the idea’s naïve, in a way, to just keep banging the same drum every day, so you want to be reactive to what’s happening, yet only if something’s actually happening.”
Sunday will mark Corden’s first time hosting the music award show. He takes over the hosting duties coming from LL Cool J, who held the gig for the last 5 years.
Corden will be feeling a touch of nerves ahead of the show.
“the idea’ll probably be terrible along with also then I will be banished coming from America along with also asked to never return because of the sham that will I have made of not only myself, yet also let my family down, the network down, along with also then forever the idea will be known as the year where he truly ruined the idea,” he said.
More seriously, Corden said he’s hoping to keep the focus on the nominees.
“The truth will be, when you’re hosting a show like This particular, the idea’s not truly about me, the idea’s about these incredible artists,” he said. “So I’m going to try along with also usher the idea around in as positive along with also warm along with also fun way as possible, along with also truly wish that will we don’t ruin everything.”
