Not only is Adams an alternative musician, poet and painter, but he's also just released an innovative cover version of Taylor Swift's best-selling album 1989.
"He has taken something that was loved and cherished by many and created a new version of it for himself. And people have gone 'Wow! That is actually amazing'," Noah told reporters.
That's just what the 31 year-old South African-born comedian hopes to do with his role on The Daily Show which was vacated in August after 16 years by the popular Jon Stewart.

Noah moved to the United States in 2011 and remains largely unknown to most Americans despite his eight months as a contributor to the satirical Comedy Central late night program during Stewart's reign.
He knows the pressure is on but plans to take things slowly, saying there will be changes in style rather than structure.
"I look at The Daily Show as a beautiful house I have inherited... I don't plan to break anything initially," he said.
But there will be more music and a wider range of guests, all of which were carefully chosen in the opening week to embody the new tone of the show, Noah said.
"Monday sees a visit by comedian Kevin Hart, because it's a comedy show first and foremost.. and Hart has broken the boundaries of color; Tuesday features Whitney Wolfe, the founder and CEO of dating app Bumble a new, female voice in a tech world; while on Wednesday, I gets into politics with New Jersey Governor and White House contender Chris Christie.
Adams closes out the first week on Thursday.
I have to say, despite all of the concerns I had about ANYONE replacing Jon Stewart, Trevor Noah already feels natural. #DailyShow
