LL COOL J

What’s cooler than the GRAMMY’s award show? Nothing! And How do you make the coolest award show for music even cooler? With host LL COOL J!

58th Grammy’s are coming to CBS Television Network, Monday, Feb. 15, 2016, from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and they just announced the return of their host. Here is what they have to say:

“We are delighted to welcome back the very talented LL COOL J as our host for the 58th GRAMMYs®,” said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow. “His unique expertise, both as a GRAMMY-winning recording artist and accomplished actor, allows him to connect with both his musical peers and the fans at home, and his dynamic personality and charismatic energy set the perfect tone for our show.”

LL Cool J responds about hosting the 58th Grammy’s:

“The performances and moments that take place on the GRAMMYs stage are awesome in so many ways for the audience and artists alike,” said LL COOL J. “I’m honored once again to host Music’s Biggest Night as we celebrate the talented music creators of today. It’s going to be an incredible night and I’m excited to share this experience with the world.”

LL Cool J is coming fresh off a great season of hosting the new show Lip Sync Battle on Spike TV and proving that his experience hosting the GRAMMYs was well worth it. He is a funny and charismatic guy in general with an electric smile that makes the women in my family swoon. His expertise from his music career helps give him personal insight into today’s relevant artists and the struggles the newbies go through to get their music heard. Plus his love of music spans through many genres keeping him in touch with all the artists nominated for a Grammy.

I have been watching the GRAMMYs my entire life and I gotta say that LL Cool J has been one of my favorite hosts. Should be another exciting year and can’t wait to see who goes home with a shiny new GRAMMY.

About the author

K.C. Murdock

Murdock Worldwide Entertainment is the brainchild of President and C.E.O. K.C. Murdock. Created for the distribution of his debut album “Sunlit World”, but took a new direction when on musical hiatus he started the podcast Down the Road Show. The fast growing popularity of that quickly spread to video production at comic cons forever changing DTRShow into the press/media division it has become. As Murdock’s profile began to rise in the con circuit he became a more integral part of every con he attended bringing a camera to conventions and utilizing it to record panels and celebrity interviews. From filming to becoming a point of contact for artists, actors and attendees, K.C. kept adding roles to his overall con responsibilities. In the span of a year and a half K.C. went from anonymous attendee to becoming a trusted source for all things convention related.

Armed with camera, K.C. branched off into the Chronicles of Comic Con, a reality based show revolving around comic conventions with skits and commercials intermixed; but K.C. had more plans. He wanted bigger. He envisioned what would become MWE. Recruiting some friends long time writing/creative partner and industry professional Josh Calvert, uber-talented graphic artist Batt Rivera aka Dark Nyte Studios, a comic con insider unknown in the Cosplay community for his personal unique twists on characters, Tyler Wilson as head of web development to build & manage murdockworldwide.com and SEO Guru Steve Wiideman his most trusted web advisor. K.C. had the backbone of a company that would eventually grow into cult status in the seedy pop culture underworld.
M.W.E. has allowed for expansion from that original premise of strictly entertainment production. With the current roster of MWE in place K.C. set his sights on expanding into brand & talent management, branding & social media management services for professionals in the Industry, and event coordination while maintaining an online network with a focus on production and development, Murdock Worldwide Entertainment is poised to become the go-to company for all things media related.
