arsenio & nelly (screenshot)*Rapper Nelly stopped by “The Arsenio Hall Show” Tuesday to perform “Give U Dat” featuring Future from his just released seventh studio album, M.O.

But before the Missouri-native could take the stage with Future, Arsenio sat down to talk baseball playoffs with Nelly. As a devout St. Louis Cardinals fan, Nelly defended his home team against Arsenio’s love of the Los Angeles Dodgers and accepted a bet live on TV, saying his Cardinals would defeat the Dodgers in the NLCS playoffs.

If Cardinals lose to the Dodgers, Nelly will have to perform “Country Grammar” on “The Arsenio Hall Show” wearing a Dodgers jersey. If the Cardinals win, Arsenio will have to perform “Country Grammar” wearing a Cardinals jersey.

Based on the fact that the Cards are up 3 games to 1 over the Dodgers, it appears that he’ll be wearing a Cardinals jersey and doing “Country Grammar” very soon.

Meanwhile, check out of the clip below with the interview and the performance!
