Nick Grimshaw to host Mercury Prize award

BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw is the new host of the Mercury Prize awards show.

He replaces Lauren Laverne who has stepped down from the annual gig.

Nick is no stranger to the event though, having hosted Channel 4’s coverage interviewing artists backstage in the past.

“It’s a real honour to host the Mercury Prize awards show, which celebrates the best British talent that we have to offer,” said Grimmy.

“I think it’s a really interesting, exciting and pretty perfect shortlist.”

The ceremony takes place at the Roundhouse in London on 29 October.
