Taylor Swift and LL Cool J Co-Star in Ads for 2012 Grammys
Taylor Swift and rapper LL Cool J banter away in a trio of new spots promoting the upcoming 2012 Grammy Awards, which air on CBS on Feb. 12. Swift is set to perform, while LL has been tapped as the host. The duo have terrific comedic chemistry and timing in these cute, short and sweet ads.
They are both dressed in their Sunday best as they zing each other playfully. It makes us think Swift could handle the lead in a romantic comedy with ease! Her transition to acting is a no-brainer … down the road, of course. And doesn’t she look adorable in her black party dress, too?
In ‘The Host,’ Swift is espousing the awesomeness of the Grammys as a whole, gushing about the one-of-a-kind performances. LL interjects, hinting at his own greatness, saying, “The host,” to which Swift reacts, “There’s a host?” Hello, awkward moment. She tries to backpedal, but it’s futile. He’s “offended.”
For ‘Get That Spot,’ Swift is polishing the giant Grammy prop with LL barking out directions, telling her to “get that spot, get that spot.” He then takes the towel to show her how it’s done, and she walks off screen. He suggests viewers tune in to the Grammys to “see who cleans up … it may not be Taylor Swift,” joking that she won’t come away with a statue. We hear her shouting “Come on!” off camera.
In ‘Impressive,’ Swift coos about how impressed she is by the giant Grammy. LL thinks she means him, and they verbally spar again.
Maybe producers oughtta have Swift co-host with LL Cool J. They certainly have the yin and yang that a show like the Grammys needs.
