Stephen Colbert Hosts the Grammys

Nobody gives a fuck about the Grammys, but Stephen Colbert is hosting them tonight, which means that everybody at Common Sense Dancing headquarters is hoping for another 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner, or, more media-appropriately, the 1999 MTV Music Video Awards, when Chris Rock tore everybody a new asshole and made so much fun of the event itself that they never invited him back. (Remember when he said that Fatboy Slim was "more like Whiteboy Retarded" and said of an obviously lip-synched Destiny's Child performance "Why'd they even turn on the microphones?" That night was awesome.) He's off to a good start, making fun of the the way that awards shows are little more than opportunities for celebrities to congratulate themselves on their success and ironically addressing Jay-Z as if they two of them are old buddies from the 'hood.

Any predictions?
