The 55th annual Grammy Awards were mostly tame. I mean, there was The Dream and his swap meet hat and Prince in his hooded glory, but for the most part, no one pulled a Kanye West…
However, there was one epic fail. And that, my friend, was LL Cool J’s performance. Here’s the thing. LL Cool J used to be hot back in the day. I adore his song “Doin’ It” and gems like “Around The Way Girl” or “Hey Lover” but this new music…”Ain’t nobody got time for that.” After watching LL parade around the stage in the chain my father had during his stint in the Army as a teenager and Chuck D– who I think qualifies for AARP– I convinced myself that his show was one big conspiracy.
How did he pull off 10-minutes at the Grammys? Who signed off on that plan? I figured it was apart of his contract. Perhaps he chose to not be paid for his hosting services and allowed to perform instead. Then it dawned on me: LL witnessed a murder and used it to blackmail the Grammy Award show programmer! I kid, I kid.
Check out these awkward moments from his performance and you tell me if it’s being dramatic! Lol.
When this girl, in the audience, raised the roof
When this guy was so calm
When Beyonce’s hair fan accidentally got turned on
When the stage props looked like it read “Daddy”
When he thought it was still cool to hit his Dougie
When he and Chuck D shared this moment
