The Grammys’ most surprising moments
Most Staggering Display of Self-Regard:Host LL Cool J hectored the audience at length after the show began, delivering a rambling monologue which he seemed annoyed had been postponed last year due to the death of Whitney Houston. It was mainly about his own career, and how his two Grammys inspire him to pursue excellence. And he kept talking about Twitter, though it seemed he had just found out what it was. "You're gonna see hashtag Carrie Underwood, hashtag Jack White, hashtag Kelly Clarkson," he announced before a show-closing performance.
