Dave Grohl’s frank and amiable manner makes him come across as wholly likeable, whether or not you are a fan of the Foo Fighters or Nirvana, or even his work drumming for Queens of the Stone Age. The man’s comments are funny and his timing is impeccable, and thus, giving him the opportunity to Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea Lately was probably a no-brainer. The best part? Watching the musician moderate a panel on Bieber’s Grammy snub, which takes a few pot shots at the young star.

The video, from Thursday’s episode of Chelsea Lately, follows some of Handler’s regulars and Grohl as they try to get in some jokes, some of which are pretty basic, including the “maybe they’re actually going for something different and nominating musicians this year” crack and references to Bieber’s Never Say Never documentary. Luckily, there are some gems as well, my personal favorite being a joke that was not actually a shot at Bieber at all, although I'm not saying it wasn't a shot at anyone. Instead, the panel briefly focuses on another pop icon, Taylor Swift, whose beat boxing apparently “[sounds] just like a wet octopus slapping up against the wall." Ouch.

Jokes aside, if you are wondering what Grohl, passionate musician and famous musician that he is, has to say about the Biebs, he’s surprisingly open to Bieber’s way of living.
"I like him, too. I think that if I were 18 or 19 years old and had $100 million, I would look exactly like that.”

If Grohl could have a do-over, I think I would picture him as more of a Willow Smith type, myself. Seriously though, catch this clip and see if Dave Grohl’s hosting prowess is as awesome as I personally believe it is. If you need more evidence, Chelsea Lately's site has plenty of more footage where the above clip came from.
