James Corden has revealed what he would do if Kanye West rushes the stage at the Grammys this year.
The British comedian is set to host the event, which takes place at LA's Staples Center on February 12. It will be his first time hosting the Grammys, but follows a string of years presenting the Brit Awards in the UK.
Speaking to Billboard, Corden said he woudn't be focusing on trying to make the event funny. 'The Grammys are not really a place for comedy,' he said. 'And I’m only in the show for 17 minutes or so, across the four hours. My intention is to make it fun before it’s funny.'
At the 2015 Grammys, West pretended to interrupt Beck's speech when he won Album Of The Year over Beyoncé, echoing the infamous time the rapper rushed the stage at the MTV VMAs when Taylor Swift beat the singer to the Best Female Video award. He walked up to the microphone, but walked away and off stage at the last minute.
