James Corden producer Ben Winston has really taken Hollywood by storm.
Now that he’s taken over as executive producer of the Grammy Awards, Winston has lost no time signing VERY BIG names, I am told, to the January 31st broadcast.
Winston is said to have already brought on board the likes of Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, and Beyonce. They will all perform or appear in some capacity. Remember, the Grammys will be done in some virtual style. They can’t have an audience at the Staples Center. Can you imagine, though, if all these people were backstage?
But the big news is that Adele has signed on for the show. It’s unclear if she’ll be singing a new song or an old one, or performing in some kind special pairing. How about an Adele-Beyonce duet?
Trevor Noah is already signed to host, so you know the show will have witty banter. The real achievement would be doing something for The Weeknd as a signal since he was shut out of nominations. But I have every confidence Recording Academy acting chief Harvey Mason, Jr. is going to pull off a success here.
So stay tuned for the official announcements. And remember, you read it here first.
