John Mayer may be the next celebrity to star in a talk show.

In recent years, stars like Drew Barrymore, Kelly Clarkson, Queen Latifah, Harry Connick Jr. and more have hosted their own talk shows.

According to a report from Variety, the “Covered in Rain” singer, 43, is nearing a deal to host a talk and performance show for Paramount+, ViacomCBS’ streaming service.

The show will reportedly be formatted in the vein of BBC’s “Later… with Jools Holland,” which heavily features musical performances from new and established artists.

“Later with John Mayer” would be a weekly offering on the streamer. The current plan is for specials derived from the show’s performances to occasionally air on CBS.

Additionally, the show could feature tie-ins with the annual Grammy Awards, which air on CBS.
