The Grammys returned to Los Angeles after moving to Las Vegas last year due to rising COVID-19 cases and omicron variants.

NEW YORK — Unemployment didn’t last long for Trevor Noah — he’s hosting the Grammy Awards in early 2023.

The comedian, who recently left his post as host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, has been tapped to serve as master of ceremonies on Feb. 5, leading to his third appearance at the Grammys.

The event will return to Los Angeles after being moved to Las Vegas last year due to increasing cases of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant. The show will be held at the Arena.

Beyoncé goes into the ceremony with a remarkable nine nominations, including her song “Break My Soul” earning record and song of the year nods.

Kendrick Lamar is second with eight. Adele and Brandi Carlile both received seven nods. Harry Styles, Mary J. Blige, Future, DJ Khaled, The Dream and mastering engineer Randy Merrill earned six each.
