For The First Time In 7 Years, The Grammys Will Have A Host: LL Cool J

The Grammys is set to have a host for the first time in seven years, and performing the illustrious role at next month’s award show will be none other than rapper LL Cool J. LL Cool J has hosted the Grammy nominations show for the past four years, so is an obvious choice to take the role of master of ceremonies at the awards show itself. In a statement, LL Cool J said “I’m thrilled to be part of Music’s Biggest Night. I will always have fond memories of my first Grammys Awards and to now be hosting the Grammy show, in the company of so many other incredible artists, is a dream come true.” The last person to host the Grammys was Queen Latifah in 2005. Next month’s Grammys will also feature performances from nominees the Foo Fighters, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars and Jason Aldean, while rumors continue to circulate that Adele will also sing.

The 54th Grammy Awards airs on February 12 on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Rumor Has It: Adele Might Be Performing At The Grammys Next Month

It’s being reported that superstar Adele is getting her larynx ready for a return to the stage following her vocal cord surgery late last year. Now, Radar Online is reporting that Adele will not only be attending next month’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles — for which she has 6 nominations — but also that there’s a chance that she will perform for the first time since the surgery that forced her to cancel her remaining 2011 commitments. According to the report, Adele won’t confirm the performance until the beginning of February, until which point we’ll be eagerly biting our nails. Either way, it’s great to see the young star making a speedy recovery, and we’ve got an inkling that performance or not, she’s going to clean up at the Grammys.
