LL Cool J hosted a game of “Lady Lovers” between Ed Sheeran and Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show. The quiz was about lady lovers, played by lovers of ladies, and conducted by a man whose name (“LL”) stands for “Ladies Love.” Watch the video below.

The competitors were given clues related to “famous lady lovers” of both genders, such as Usher and Wanda Sykes. Other famous lady lovers included Adam Levine and Melissa Etheridge. One of the answers was “Portia de Rossi.” We won’t spoil the surprise of whether Sheeran or DeGeneres guessed that one first. Watch out for the ending, when LL Cool J sneakily gives Sheeran credit for what seems like a wrong answer. Oh, the drama.

LL Cool J will be hosting this weekend’s Grammy Awards, live from Staples Center in Los Angeles. Gossip Cop will have full coverage of music’s biggest night, which kicks off at 8 p.m., preceded by red carpet arrivals. In the meantime, enjoy Sheeran and DeGeneres’ intense “Lady Lovers” showdown.
