"Yes, that's my favorite thing," he tells Billboard of Sunday's ceremony, the first Grammys to be impacted by the coronavirus crisis. "This is an awards show, it's a celebration of music, so if you're watching at home you can combine it with all your favorite concert series. That's what this is, essentially. In my opinion, it won't have that depressing, 'oh man, look at all of us stuck at home.' I'm so tired of that imagery, I'm not going to lie to you. It's everywhere. Some TV shows have adopted it for their dramas or whatever. If it's not current affairs, I'm like 'take me away on whatever flight of fantasy you can.' Luckily the Grammys can." Pointing out that COVID numbers are going down as the vaccination rate goes up, Noah adds: "Hopefully this can be a moment of hope. We've gone March to March and I'm as exhausted as everyone else of not living life. Hopefully this can be a respite from that for a moment and then we'll be like, 'oh yeah, that was the beginning of when we got to start living our lives again.'"
