The 58th Annual Grammy Awards, which recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry, are well underway today. And a handful of the world’s most beloved pop, rock, rap and country stars have already been named winners this year.
E Online reports that hip hop recording artist and actor LL Cool J hosts the event held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and the host recently spilled to reporter Sibley Scoles about how he’s preparing himself for the unexpected.
LL Cool J stated while laughing, “Anything is possible, you know? I don’t know what I’ll do. I might get nervous and my knees start shaking or trembling,” then the host added, “I guess I’ll just run offstage screaming!”
However, according to Mirror, the Grammys has paid tribute to Glenn Frey, Eagles band co-founder who passed away last month. Singer and songwriter Jackson Browne along with Eagles band members Tim Schmit, Bernie Leadon, Don Henley and Joe Walsh all took the stage at the Grammys for a performance of the track Take It Easy.
One viewer posted online about the tribute, “I just cried as I watch Jackson Browne perform on the stage with the Eagles,” while another also tweeted, “So teary watching the Eagles members and Brown paid tribute to Glenn Frey on the Grammys.”
