This hosting thing must be catching: LL Cool J will host the long-hostless "Grammys" next month, the network has announced.

And so, J and the Grammys join Ricky and the Golden Globes, which also never had a host until Britain's Don Rickles turned on his charm three seasons ago. The 54th will air Feb. 12.

Per J: “I’m thrilled to be a part of music’s biggest night. I will always have fond memories of my first GRAMMY Awards and to now be hosting the GRAMMY show, in the company of so many other incredible artists, is a dream come true. Great performances and great music – it's going to be a great night,” he added.

He's ... baaaad:
