After a lively opening performance by Sonic Silk, Noah came out and made some funny, playful jokes about the night’s nominees — calling Justin Bieber “the best thing to peach since that Timothée Chalamet movie” — and joked that there was so much star power, it felt like “Here’s a Madame Tussauds musical!”

Noah said, “It’s going to be such a beautiful evening. Don’t even think of it as an awards show, consider it a concert where we’re giving away awards.” “We’re listening to some music, we’re dancing, we’ll sing. We’ll put people’s names out of our mouths and we’ll give prizes all night.”

The line – which did not specifically directly address Thappad – garnered a huge laugh from the audience. Noah, of course, was referencing Will Smith’s infamous outburst from this year’s Oscars after storming the stage over a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith and slapping Chris Rock in the face.

“I mean, hosting the Grammys once, it’s a lifetime achievement. Hosting it twice is an opportunity to mess things up, so it’s awesome, it’s exciting, it’s an honor and most importantly It’s that I think it’s a celebration,” he continued. , “Because before there was a pandemic deep inside and now cases are coming down, people are coming back together, we have an audience and I’m really excited to share this with the people in the crowd.”
