Trevor Noah takes aim at royal family tension over Harry and Meghan interview with Grammys joke


Trevor Noah pulled no punches during his stint as the host of this year’s Grammy Awards.

The comedian took over from Alicia Keys, who hosted in 2020, as he produced gags that took aim at UK prime minister Boris Johnson, and the Royal Family.

He also brought up Harry Styles, who performed at the ceremony and took home his first-ever Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance (for “Watermelon Sugar”),

“It’s crazy to think that someone that talented and handsome is from the same place as Boris Johnson,” Noah joked.

“I loved how Trevor Noah just casually shamed Boris Johnson,” one person tweeted in response.

Another said: “Harry… amazing. Wow. Also Trevor Noah roasting Boris Johnson…. king sh**.”

“I lost it when Trevor Noah said ‘can you believe this handsome guy (Harry Styles) is from the same place as Boris Johnson,’” someone else wrote.

Noah’s joke came after he also used his opening monologue to address the tension in Buckingham Palace over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

“This year’s Grammys is going to look a little different, I’m not going to front, the whole thing is going to be pretty different,” Noah said as he opened the show.
