taylor swift ll cool j grammy nominations concert Taylor Swift, nabs nomination, beatboxes at 'Fun.' dominated Grammy Nominations Concert
Taylor Swift, reuniting with LL Cool J to co-host the Grammy Nominations Concert Wednesday night (Sept. 5), might not have conquered all musical genres yet.

Welcoming the hip-hop actor to “her town,” Nashville, T-Swizzle beatboxed while he sang “Mean.” Fortunately, their performance was short: there were plenty of acts and even a few nominations to follow.
