Consolation puppies stole the spotlight at the Grammys


What’s better than receiving a Grammy award? Puppies, obviously.

Grammys host James Corden pulled an Oprah Sunday night and announced—to the delight of everyone—that all nominees who don’t win an award will be given a “consolation puppy.”

Viewers on Twitter were quick to point out that puppies were actually a way better gift than the Grammys award. Judging by the reactions of celebrities in the crowd like Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Gaffigan, they agree.

Whether or not Corden was just joking, it was the fans who received the greatest gift of all Sunday night—witnessing Seinfeld’s reaction to a puppy hopping into his hands.
