"Big Ole Butt" writer LL Cool J will be the first Grammys host since 2005

It’s been nearly seven years, but at last the Grammys have found an entertainer bold and charismatic enough to step into the still-looming shadow of Queen Latifah, and that entertainer is LL Cool J. The rapper turned actor turned rapper-actor who can never escape mention of the song “Big Ole Butt” whenever this one jerk blogger writes about him will be the awards show’s first host since Latifah in 2005, although LL Cool J has presented the annual Grammy Nominations Concert since 2008. He also wrote the song “Big Ole Butt,” which won that year's Grammy for "Best Song About Big Ole Butts."
