The 2012 Grammys got off to a somber but classy start, with show host LL Cool J skillfully channeling the collective sadness over the loss of Whitney Houston into a prayer that was short, intense, on point, and much needed. Bravo to LL Cool J for how he handled the matter!
Hip Hop Weekly issued a Twitter tweet that summed it up:
LL Cool J is doing an amazing, remarkable, untouchable job hosting the 54th Grammy Awards.
About the only thing anyone can get on LL Cool J about as he hosts this show is his habit of licking his lips. Of course, that’s the one other action the Twitterverse is looking at:
ll cool j done licked his lips like 40 times already
Well, fortunately the awards and now Rihanna take center stage, and she’s rockin the house!
