Funniest Grammys red carpet interview

E! reporter Giuliana Ranic's Grammys red carpet interview with rapper Lil Uzi Vert lasted for less than a minute - but by the end of their chat, she'd declared it her "favourite interview of the night."

The pair didn't exactly get off to a smooth start, Rancic's high-energy approach hitting a brick wall against the rapper's monosyllabic answers:

Giuliana: What are you feeling tonight?

Lil Uzi Vert: *mumbles inaudibly*

Giuliana: Are you excited about what the night's going to bring? HUGE nominations, by the way.

Lil Uzi Vert: Yep.

Giuliana: Are you feeling lucky?

Lil Uzi Vert: This is my life, so it's like, whatever.

We wanna meet Big Uzi.

So far, so painful. But Rancic finally piqued Uzi's interest when she asked him how he planned to celebrate if he won a Grammy:

L il Uzi Vert: If I win, Imma just think about everything I'm gonna buy the next day. You know I like to shop, so... shopping. Gaultier just dropped a new collab with Burberry, it's very nice. I gotta get everything," he said, finally displaying some enthusiasm.


And then, the piece de resistance:

Giuliana: What's next for you?

Lil Uzi Vert: Wake up, eat some Pop Tarts.

Perfection. Knowing the interview - and quite possibly her night - had peaked, a beaming Rancic bid Lil Uzi Vert goodbye: "Favourite interview of the night. Lil Uzi, thank you."

Giuliana Ranic:
