Paula Reid: Talk to me a little bit about
what is your role tonight? LL Cool J: I’m the host, I am uh, hosting
and my job is just make sure the show goes smoothly and that the honorees are treated
with the utmost respect and love. It’s just, you know, it’s a good time. Paula: And you- you’re a previous honoree,
one of the youngest, honorees. LL: Yeah, that’s true, that’s true. That’s a record that can be broken, but I’m
um, I’m very thankful. It’s wonderful to be back here in the- feel

just- I’m more excited for the honorees and the feelings that they gonna feel- you know
look, the performances will be fun and it’ll be great but I just know what it feels like
to be an honoree, so I’m kinda more thinking about the looks on their faces. Because it’s kinda like an inside club you

great event, a lot of fun, and uh, it’s the nation’s highest recognition for artistic
achievement, so, you should tune in and see who’s in.
