Two of the slickest superstars on the planet are pitted against each other in this Fashion Face-Off.

First, we have LL Cool J, the host of the 2012 Grammy Awards, who had the unenviable task last night of MCing an event over which a pall had been cast, due to Whitney Houston's tragic death. But the actor/rapper kicked off the ceremony with a prayer and handled his duties as well as could be expected.

His competition? Bruno Mars, producer/performer extraordinaire, and possibly the most talented man in the music business today.

Compare. Contrast. And vote between these icons below:

Sincere prayer on a Hollywood stage? You don't see that every day, but Sunday was not an average day. At the beginning of the 2012 Grammy Awards, host LL Cool J paid tribute to Whitney Houston, who died the previous day at 48.

"There's no way around this," he said, addressing a silent crowd. "We've had a death in our family, and so at least for me, the only thing that feels right is to begin with a prayer for a woman we loved, for our fallen sister, Whitney Houston."

Watch LL Cool J's prayer for Whitney Houston below:

After the NCIS: Los Angeles star finished, a video of Houston singing her hit "I Will Always Love You" played. "Whitney, we will always love you," he continued.

"And we'll remember you the best way we know how – with a song."

Jennifer Hudson's performance of the song honored Houston later in the telecast.

What did you think of LL's prayerful tribute?

Taylor Swift rules the world of pop music and country music.

But she might want to leave the rapping up to the host of the 2012 Grammy Awards.

In a great new commercial for that February 12 ceremony, Swift stands alongside LL Cool J and tries to beat box along with the NCIS: Los Angeles star - but quickly realizes she's in way over her cute blonde head. Still, Taylor should not lose all hope: she does a pretty mean Eminem, after all.
