In its 60th year, one would expect the Grammys to be bigger and better than ever before, right? Well, when an awards show draws in over 17 million viewers, then performers, nominees, and of course, the host all prepare something amazing. At this year’s Grammys, Dave Chapelle won Best Comedy Album with “The Age Of Spin/Deep In The Heart Of Texas.” Grammy host James Corden had a surprise in store for those the nominees who didn’t win.

“I should say to all the nominees who are not going home with a Grammy — I don’t want anyone to be upset tonight, so the good news is nobody goes home empty-handed because all night we will be handing out consolation puppies. So if you didn’t get a Grammy, you get a puppy,” he said.

Puppies were hand delivered to Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, and Jim Gaffigan. The comedians and audience alike were transfixed with the adorable fluffy packages.

According to Corden, one of the puppies, Roxie, “is a biter” and Ruby, who went home with Jim Gaffigan, “isn’t toilet-trained.”
