What on Earth is happening here? The caption tells us that Wolf Blitzer -- yes, the CNN anchor -- is wrestling with Biz Markie -- yes, the old-school rapper -- for control of a trophy at the Soul Train Music Awards -- but that raises more questions than answers. The folks at CNN tell us Blitzer was asked to be a presenter at the annual show in Atlanta, introducing Doug E. Fresh, who taught Blitzer how to do "the Dougie" dance move -- and then since (spoiler alert!) Eminem wasn't there to get his prize, producers asked Blitzer to accept for him, and well, antics ensued. We'll just have to watch: Sunday, Nov. 28, on BET.

How many award shows exactly does BET produce? It seems like they do one every month. Sheesh.
