Watch: Elated Ice-T Reacts to Grammy Win
Body Count’s “Bum Rush” picked up the Grammy for Best Metal Performance at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards last night, beating out Power Trip, Code Orange, In This Moment and Poppy.
As has become standard for awards shows in the Covid age, the Grammys had live video feeds rolling with every nominee while their names were being read by the presenter, cutting to the winner on announcement. While if you watched the broadcast you may have already seen Ice-T’s reaction, what you didn’t see is the meta-reaction: a video shot by Ice’s wife, the actress and model Coco, who filmed not only the reaction itself (from a different angle), but the before and after. You can watch that video via Ice-T’s Twitter below.
As usual, the Best Metal Performance award was handed out the Grammy Premiere Ceremony before the main event, only available to stream online.
The award was Ice-T’s second from four nominations between Body Count and his rap career. His last Grammy came with “Back on the Block” in 1990 for Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group.
The broadcast was originally set to take place on January 31, but was moved to March 14 for the same reason everything else has been postponed lately.
