Arsenio Hall Performing "Country Grammar" in an Ozzie Smith Uniform: But Where's the Backflip?

Arsenio Hall performing "Country Grammar" in an Ozzie Smith uniform, NOT doing backflips.

Last night, Nelly returned to the Arsenio Hall Show to collect on the bet he and Hall made on Tuesday of last week. The wager was over whether the Dodgers or the Cardinals would triumph in the recent series for the pennant: If the former, Nelly would perform his breakout hit "Country Grammar" wearing a Dodgers uniform; if the latter, Hall would perform the song, dressed in Ozzie Smith's duds.

Arsenio Hall proved himself a man of his word...well, mostly.

First, here is the video of the performance from last night:

He gave us the chorus, he's clad in a "No. 1" Ozzie jersey -- that is all well and good. But Arsenio: Where is our backflip? You distinctly said, "I'll even do a backflip" when agreeing to the bet. We can check the tape right now, in fact. Skip to the 2:40 mark in the video below.

"I'll even do a backflip," he says, just before the two agree on the bet. "I'll even do a backflip."

Well, that flip never came. Now, we at RFT Music understand that Hall is nearly 60 years old, and such feats of strength and agility don't come easy to the average, non-Ozzie Smith man (we're pretty sure Smith, at 58, still backflips out of bed every morning and then high-fives all thirteen of his Golden Glove awards), but a bet is a bet. We don't care if you have to use some fancy wire-fu Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon stuff: We want to see that backflip.

Continue to page two for details on how to take action and get a man on the TV to do a flip.

The man's almost 60. He was obviously joking about the backflip. He wore the jersey and sang part of the song, that's enough for me. :)
