LL Cool J Dishes on Beyonce, Jay Z Grammy Rumors


LL Cool J is back to host the 56th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday on CBS.

The rapper-actor phoned into On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday and revealed that it’s going to be the most exciting Grammys yet.

Even though this will be LL’s third time hosting the award show, he says: “I’m excited. I think it’s going to be a great show … You’re going to have Robin Thicke in the building, Chicago, Paul McCartney, Ringo [Starr], Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Metallica, Taylor SwiftWillie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Imagine Dragons… It’s going to be some of the best acts in the business … Words can’t describe what’s been put together this year.”

And what’s been put together could be Beyoncé and husband Jay Z performing together onstage, as well as Madonna.

As for the Queen Bey and Jay rumor, LL coyly says: “I’m not sure. I can’t confirm or deny it, but there will be some fun things happening.”

And what will those be? “LL stands for ‘Least Likely’ to know what’s going on,” jokes the rapper.

But he does have some ideas for his opening monologue. LL says his plan for the night is to “go out there and have some fun. At the end of the day, it’s not about me hosting … it’s about the performers … and their moment … I want to get out of the way .”
