The skit saw the big names “auditioning” to record the audiobook version of the book, in preparation for being nominated at next year’s event.
The clip started with host James Corden settling John Legend into his audition before telling him he was “too smooth”. After Cardi B read a section about Trump’s habit of going to bed at 6:30pm with a cheeseburger, she responded: “Why am I even reading this shit? I can’t believe this! I can’t believe… this how he lives his life?!”
The final star to audition held the book over their face, before slowly moving it down as they read. “That’s it, we’ve got it,” Corden announced, to which Hillary Clinton replied: “You think so? The Grammy’s in the bag?”
Jay-Z, who was nominated for eight awards at the event, went home empty-handed. Meanwhile, performers on the night included Kesha, Mars and Cardi B, Elton John with Miley Cyrus, and Rihanna and DJ Khaled.
