On Sunday night, 64order The annual Grammy Awards ceremony is televised live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In the pre-show, national treasure Levar Burton warned attendees to “stay in your seat and keep your hands on yourselves” —an obvious nod to Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock’ go around the world. Then, proving once again that the so-called “cancellation culture” is nothing more than a myth of accountability, serial sexual harasser Louis CK admits (and seemingly unrepentantly) has took home the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.
A day later Saturday night live aired several segments related to the slap, from Chris Redd-as-Will Smith’s sketch re-enacting the surreal episode to co-star Michael Che’s “Weekend Update” targeting Jada Pinkett Smith , viewers were curious how Grammys host Trevor Noah would tackle the problem.
Oh, he did – sort of.
“It’s going to be a beautiful evening,” Noah announced excitedly to the crowd. “Don’t even think of it as an award show. This is the concert where we give awards, okay? ”
He continued: “We’ll listen to some music, we’ll dance, we’ll sing, we’ll keep people’s names out of our mouths, and we’ll hand out prizes all night long. ”
Shortly after, Questlove – who won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature Chris Rock when he received the aforementioned slap – took to the stage to present the Grammy Award for Song of the Year, exclaiming, “Okay, I’ll give it.” this prize and I trust you all will be five hundred feet away from me… keep playing. ”
Meanwhile, the award went to Silk Sonic for “Leave the door open”.
