The 53rd Grammy Awards were full of stellar performances, big upsets and more than a few delightful surprises. But Sunday night’s (February 13) excitement got started even before the curtain raised at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as the Grammy Awards red carpet was a hive of superstar activity. MTV News was live on the scene with a two-hour live streaming show called “Snooki & Sway: Live From the Grammys,” which brought together MTV News’ veteran voice Sway and “Jersey Shore” breakout star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (with a handful of cameos by MTV News’ James Montgomery). The trio talked to all the big stars, including Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, B.o.b and Jennifer Hudson.
But what were Snooki’s favorite moments from her co-hosting job as an MTV News correspondent? After the show, she talked to Sway and Montgomery about her top moments.
“Top three favorite moments? Talking to Nicki Minaj,” Snooki said. “She recognized me, so that was crazy.” That meet-up was particularly interesting, as not only was Minaj’s hair taller than Snooki, but the chart-topping rapper also grabbed a handful of Snooki’s cleavage during the interview.
Snooki also noted that she very much enjoyed talking to Drake’s mom (who was the Best New Artist-nominated rapper’s date at the show. But Snooki’s most favorite moment of the red carpet celebration was the highlight for a lot of people present. “Seeing Lady Gaga in the egg and having her wave hello to us,” Snooki added. “That was insane.”
