LL Cool J has been announced to host the forthcoming 2012 Grammy Awards.
The rapper will be the first official host to front the 54th annual US music event at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on February 12, in seven years.
I’m thrilled to be part of music’s biggest night. I will always have fond memories of my first Grammy Awards and to now be hosting the Grammy show is a dream come true.
The rapper has fronted the nominations for the Grammys since 2008. In previous years a string of guest presenters have anchored the main event.
Adele is also among the nominees, shortlisted for Album Of The Year for ‘21’ and Best Solo Pop performance.
