If you’re a fan of men who wink after every sentence, Kangol hats, and the year 1989, then you were excited to see LL Cool J hosting last night’s 56th Grammy Awards.
LL Cool J, or, “Ladies Love Cool J,” has inexplicably been the host of the Grammy Awards for THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS. How could this man, a relic of a bygone era, have been the host for THREE YEARS IN A ROW?! The only explanation: he saved the president of CBS, his wife, and kids from a murderer while on set of Law and Order.
In between commercials for Two Broke Girls, there were awards given and performances by the year’s best artists and some country singers. The main event of the show came during Macklemore’s performance of his hit song, “Same Love,” when Queen Latifah officiated the wedding of 33 individual couples.
What really had me wondering was how they found all of those couples who were willing to be upstaged at their own wedding by Taylor Swift. Maybe they put an ad on Craigslist? After the wedding Madonna came out and really got the party going, wearing all white and using a cane. I just hope she is okay.
Maybe next year the Baha Men will finally get their chance to host, but until then, it is LL Cool J’s world and we’re just living in it.
