In September of 2022, Trevor Noah shocked the world when he announced he was stepping down from his post as the host of The Daily Show, after nearly seven years of filling the role. The announcement came as a surprise to nearly everyone, including his staff. Just before going to a commercial break during that September 29 taping, Noah went off script and said “It’s been absolutely amazing, and I found myself thinking about everything we’ve gone through…and I realized that after seven years, my time is up.” While Noah has not announced any plans for what he intends to do next, he made a very public, tongue-in-cheek audition for a new job following his 3rd consecutive stint at the host of the Grammy Awards on Sunday night (February 5).
In mobile phone footage captured backstage after the show, Noah is seen approaching Busta Rhymes. Earlier in the evening, Busta was one of several Hip-Hop legends who tore down the Grammy stage with a scintillating Hip-Hop 50 tribute curated by The Roots’ Questlove. In addition to Busta, the tribute included Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Black Thought, LL Cool J, Method Man, Nelly, The LOX, Queen Latifah, Lil Uzi Vert, Missy Elliot, Lil Baby, Run-D.M.C., DJ Jazzy Jeff, Salt-N-Pepa and many, many more. As Trevor Noah approaches the MC born Trevor Smith, Noah begins rapping the refrain to Busta’s “What It Is.”
