LL Cool J has sold millions of albums and made a name for himself in fashion, films and television. He continues his success as the host of the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, February 12 on CBS.
The Recording Academy announced Wednesday that LL Cool J is set to host the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 12. LL Cool J, who has hosted “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live!” since its inception in 2008, will be the first official host of the show in seven years.
The Grammy-winning rapper and actor says the Feb. 12 broadcast is “gonna be a great night” and says his hosting duties are a dream come true.
The free concert was canceled following thunderstorms and lightning much to the dismay of fans who waited several hours for the gates to open.
The Jersey boys are up for possible induction in the hallowed hall, along with first-timers Donovan, Dr. John, Alice Cooper and Neil Diamond.
Rapper-actor LL Cool J was giving back to his Queens community, returning to his old neighborhood for his annual “Jump and Ball” tournament.
The event features basketball and double dutch competitions as well as karate, dance and self-defense activities.
