LL Cool J held down the hosting duties at last night's Grammy Awards for the second year in a row, and not only did he end the show with a performance of his own, but he also did some serious lip-licking throughout the evening.

Of course, LL's been known to keep his lips moist on camera in the past, whether it's in one of his rap videos or during a sit-com episode, but last night, he went extra in. And VH1 sifted back through the broadcast and edited every time he licked his lips into one video, tallying a total of 46 lip-licks. Amazing.

Watch all 46 lip-licking moments above. Let's go for 50 next year, LL! You were so close!
