Wolf Blitzer a hit at the Soul Train Awards

He is now officially the coolest man on the planet.

CNN’s own Wolf Blitzer had the crowd on its feet Wednesday night in Atlanta at the Soul Train Awards where he was a presenter.

What was Blitzer doing at the Soul Train Awards you might ask? It turns out the erudite host of "The Situation Room" was a fan of the dance show back in the day, which he said was the destination for all things cool, from fashion to music, when he was growing up.

The audience couldn’t have been more welcoming to Blitzer, who brought the house down when he revealed that he wasn't there to talk politics or current events but rather for someone to teach him "how to Dougie.”

For those not in the know, the Dougie is a hip hop dance which is a favorite of club goers, athletes and celebrities alike. The audience roared their approval and gave Blitzer a standing O as he offered up some of his dance moves with an assist from a very special rapper (refer to the above photo). He also accepted an award for a rapper who couldn't attend.

Wow, who knew? You did CNN proud, Mr. Blitzer.

The show is scheduled to air on BET and Centric at 9 p.m. on November 28.

    Dear Mr, Blizter, my brother who is and has been incarncerated for about 23 years. Stabbed three times, wheel chair confind and now having seizures. Was just recently in about the past 7 months was transfered two tiime. He was transfered after being beaten by a few guards. Which iwas captured on the camera. Im,ates from the prison of which he was transfered from sent me a leteer telling me which camera to have the lawyers look at. SSI look at the cmera and it shoed no assult on his behalf and were going to let him out and the guard who was involved in the beating who has entrance inhim said no I want him to stay in the hole. She then Jacked his points up.from 17 to 28 and gave him 15 days.. She jacked his points but gave him no shot. He had no shots since 1191 She said he had wine or was drinking wine, Everyone that has ever known my brother no he has never drank or drug. The guards then said I am going to send you back and let your homies take care of you. They then sent him to another prison which I won't name were his was stabbed after being ther for three days. After he healed a little they forced him to leave his cell, he kept saying no he don't won't to go out because he felt funny. The guard made him go out and he got stabbed again. The then shipped him to another prison were he said they sent him there to be killed. I spoke to my older brother about this matter who also has been in prison before and he said were he is, is were they send you to be knock off. Please help my brother.

    Thanks Sharon Smith

      Good one! Lol! Also, I'm surprised at all of the 20 something year olds that don't know the dougie is taken from rap legend Dougie Fresh. I assumed we were all old enough to recognize most of the originators,especially since the age gap is really not that substantial.

      There is a difference between rap and.hip hop. Doug E. Fresh, k-os, kid couti, b.o.b. k'naan and brother Ali are carrying the true spirit of hip-hop to which educated encourages and uplifts the disenfranchised, the way things are going all of America should listen up and learn how to thrive in a changing world. Listen to the content. Stay away from all POP music "rap" included.
