Trevor Noah nailed his hosting gig at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards as he received a stamp of approval from none other than Taylor Swift on Sunday night, February 4, 2024.
As reported by PEOPLE, the songstress and the comedian were spotted hugging each other as Swift praised Noah for such a well-executed hosting at the ceremony, who marked his fourth consecutive year as the host.
The Midnights hit-maker embraced the former Daily Show host and told him that he did a “beautiful job tonight, you really did.”
“I don’t know how you do it,” she further added. After greeting Noah, Swift also embraced another person standing beside the host, whom she referred to as “the best.”
“I’ve seen you running around all night, I don’t know how you do it,” she told him.
Trevor Noah’s opening monologue at the Grammys featured a shoutout to Swift, as she entered the Crypto.com Arena, with an entourage that included Jack Antonoff and his wife Margaret Qualley.
The host asked the crowd, "Are you seeing what's happening right now as Taylor Swift moves through the room?"
“The local economy around those tables improves. Can you see you get this magic right now? Look at this magic. Lionel Richie, now Lionel Wealthy. Look at that," Noah joked.
He also shot his chance at cracking a joke over the screen time that the Lover crooner gets at NFL games, who attends the games to cheer on her boyfriend, the American footballer, Travis Kelce.
Noah joked that every time Taylor Swift is mentioned throughout the night, the cameras will show someone who plays football.
"I think it is so unfair how NFL fans have been complaining about the cameras cutting to Taylor Swift? Right? Like she's controlling the cameras at the games,” he said.
Delivering the punch-line, Noah continued, "I'm gonna get revenge. Every time someone says Taylor Swift. I'm going to cut the cameras to someone who plays football," and the cameras panned to Terry Crews, much to the audience’s delight.
