We should start this out with a bit of history on this show. The first Grammy Awards ceremonies were held on May 4, 1959, to recognize musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958. It was a star-studded banquet held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and a mere 28 awards were handed out. The event was emceed by a comedian/actor named Mort Sahl. The word “Grammy” is short for gramophone which was an early record player. The academy had been founded only two years earlier and was a newcomer to the awards season. The number of Grammy categories had once grown to more than 100 but now stands at 81.

The Grammys in many years did not have a designated host. However there are many whose stint at manning the helm of this awards show brought them back to host again. Here is a look a ten of the most memorable to have done this job.
