Grammys 2018: People weren't impressed with James Corden's hosting skills

'Can we give James Corden back to England?'

Grammy Awards 2018 in 90 seconds

This year’s Grammys were a fairly standard affair, Bruno Mars scooping the most awards and women taking only one major prize.

While many of the actual performers have been widely praised — particularly those by Kendrick Lamar and Kesha — the ceremony’s host, James Corden, proved controversial.

The former Gavin & Stacy actor mocked Donald Trump, spoke about diversity, and brought Sting and Shaggy on board for a sketch which saw him punched in the face.

Some Twitter users were left particularly unimpressed by Corden, many American social media users joking that the UK should “take him back”.

“Following a Kendrick Lamar performance with James Corden joking about diversity should not be legal,” one commenter noted.

“The crickets James Corden’s jokes are getting tonight really deserve the Grammy for best ambient album,” quipped another.

Other headlines to come out of the Grammys include Hillary Clinton mocking Trump, “Despacito” being snubbed, and Ed Sheeran winning best pop performance. Read the full list of winners here.
