Grammy Awards Hires First Host in Seven Years

The ladies aren’t the only ones that love LL Cool J.

For the first time in seven years, the Grammy Awards have decided to go with a host in the rapper-turned-actor and co-star of NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS.

LL Cool J has previously served as host of the Grammy nominations concert. Queen Latifah was the last host of the Grammys back in 2005.

The Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson are scheduled to perform on Feb. 12 from Staples Center.

“I will always have fond memories of my first Grammy Awards and to now be hosting the Grammy show, in the company of so many other incredible artists, is a dream come true,” LL Cool J said in a statement.
