A week after filming his last episode as the host of "The Daily Show," Trevor Noah has already secured another gig: hosting the Grammys for the third year in a row.

The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced Thursday that Noah will serve as host of the 65th Grammy Awards on the cover of Billboard's 2023 Grammy Voter Guide.

Noah joins rapper and actor LL Cool J as the only three-time Grammys host.

Noah, 38, shared the cover on his Instagram account, posting that he was "super excited" to be hosting the show for the third year.

In September, Noah announced that he was leaving "The Daily Show," the satirical news program on Comedy Central.

Noah was a relatively unknown comedian in the U.S. when he debuted as the host in 2015. There had been questions as to whether he could effectively fill the shoes of Jon Stewart, who had stepped down after 16 years.

But Noah earned praise for his cool, relaxed comedic style as the U.S. grappled with heated political rhetoric in the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. The South African native and a new group of comics also continued to produce the show during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Noah was the first late-night talk show host to switch to an at-home format, prompting others to follow suit.

"The Daily Show" has not announced a permanent host for when the show returns in January but released a list of celebrities and comedians that guest host.

On Dec. 7, Comedy Central announced those lined up to take Noah's seat in the coming months. On Tuesday, the cable network announced Al Franken, Chelsea Handler, D.L. Hughley, Leslie Jones, John Leguizamo, Hasan Minhaj, Kal Penn, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Marlon Wayans will all serve as guest hosts.

The new season of "The Daily Show" in this format will premiere on Jan. 17. It's unclear if the guest hosts are essentially auditioning for the role of permanent host.

When Stewart left "The Daily Show," there had been rumblings that his replacement would be a former correspondent, as Noah had made brief appearances before being named as Stewart's successor. Former alumni of the program include Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, and Samantha Bee -- all of whom have maintained an audience as hosts on other networks.

There have been rumors that Bee and comedian Amber Ruffin are candidates.

Noah was a guest on "The Tonight Show" in October and said he plans to "do everything," including travel the world now that he has left his 9-5 hosting job.

"I think everybody has gone through a period of looking at their lives — every single person. We were in our apartments for two years, and the world changed." Noah told host Jimmy Fallon. "We experienced collective grief. I think if you don't look at your life and think about what you'd like to do differently, then you haven't experienced what we've all experienced, and so I think [my departure] is a joyous thing."

Along with hosting the Grammys, which will air on Feb. 5 on CBS and Paramount+, Noah is also starting a 28-city stand-up comedy tour across the U.S. starting on Jan. 20 in Atlanta and taking him through the remainder of 2023.
