Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy which organizes the annual music awards said that—thanks to Carpool Karaoke, we all have been on some unbelievable rides with James Corden and could not be more excited to welcome his passion and exertion for music both as an entertainer and a fan to the Grammy stage on 12th February 2017.
