OK, so, Questlove — who also won the Best Music Film Grammy for his documentary Summer of Soul — presented the award for Song of the Year during tonight’s telecast.
Of course, you probably remember that Questlove also won the Best Documentary Feature Oscar right after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on the Oscars stage.
So when he took the Grammys stage, he had to mention his proximity to the incident.
“I trust you people will stay 500 feet away from me,” he joked at the beginning of his remarks, indirectly referencing the Oscars incident. He also said that “this is now a special moment for someone,” which could’ve been a reference to his own win getting, uh, overshadowed.
