For the first time in seven years, the Grammy Awards are getting a host: LL Cool J, the veteran host and co-producer of the Grammy Nominations Concert Live show, according to Grammy.com. Now this raises a few questions: 1) For what percentage of the show will Cool James be wearing his sunglasses? 2) Will he be covering up those beautiful arms of his with a tux the whole time? 3) Will he be any good? As we’ve learned from uncomfortable experience (ahem, James Franco and Anne Hathaway), non-comedians don’t have a good track record as awards show hosts. But LL never ceases to surprise us with his many talents. I mean, he has been acting since 1985’s Kush Groove, and he managed to hold his own opposite Queen Latifah in Last Holiday. He’s written four books. And his ex-Navy Seal character on NCIS: Los Angeles speaks Arabic fluently (and yes, that show is still on CBS, the home of the Grammy Awards on February 12). Wrangling a few musicians onstage should be cake, right? Now for the real question — do we really need anyone to host the show? Vote below, and then watch LL’s collabo with Elmo after the jump.
