Stylin’, profilin’, and wearin’ only the finest of formal newsboy caps, LL Cool J is going back to Grammy (Grammy, Grammy). He’s going back to Grammy—man, Deadline thinks so: The publication reports that, for the fourth consecutive year, the Grammy Awards will be hosted by the star of NCIS: Los Angeles/MC whose lyrics inspired the dumb jokes in this Newswire. Performers scheduled to appear alongside LL Cool J include Madonna, Usher, Sam Smith, Miranda Lambert, and recent Oscar nominees Common and John Legend. Viewers looking for a real good time can hear LL Cool J say “close your eyes, I’ve got a surprise” (or some other form of canned presentation banter) February 8 on the Cool J Broadcasting System, a.k.a. CBS.
