James Corden won't do comedy at GRAMMYs: 'It's not that sort of show'

British star James Corden will host the upcoming GRAMMY Awards ceremony and he has revealed that he won't be making it a comedy-based event because it's "not that sort of show". 

Chatting to People magazine about the gig, which is set to take place in Los Angeles on February 12, Corden explained that it's a highly coveted spot and one that he wants to do justice:

"The truth is, it's quite a tough room to do jokes in. You can't really do comedy because it's the Staples Centre - it's not that sort of show. Rather than try and think of jokes or laughs, we're gonna try and think about how to make it fun and enthusiastic. I feel very nervous about it, very scared, but I'm gonna try and make it the best I can!"

The 'Carpool Karaoke' sensation added: "The Tonys is a more traditional hosting job; with the Grammys, you're not in the show that much, just ushering stuff around. But we're gonna try to make it as fun as a possible."
