From Alicia Keys to Cardi B, the comics talk about unique and not-so-unique moments from the awards show.
There were plenty of unique moments during Sunday’s Grammy Awards: Alicia Keys, host of the 61st annual event, played on two pianos at once during the ceremony (impressive to most, but Jimmy Kimmel had one sharp criticism for the host). And Cardi B became the first solo female to win best rap album. Late-night host Jimmy Fallon had a suggestion that might have calmed the singer’s nerves. Hint: She had a hankering for pot.
But something that wasn’t unique about the evening: the way-too-long acceptance speeches, and the complaints that followed when musicians were cut off mid-thank you. The rambling was enough to drive comic Trevor Noah a bit bonkers. Find out why he compared the seemingly unprepared winners to folks who take home mega-millions jackpots and others who struggle at Chipotle.
And James Corden talks about Lady Gaga going viral. All of that and more in today’s Best of Late Night, above. Take a look at our favorite jokes from last night’s late-night lineup, then vote for yours in the poll below.
