Trent Reznor Receives Apology From Grammy Producer

Nine Inch Nails

It was probably one of the most anticipated performances of the Grammys,Trent Reznor, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsay Buckingham and Dave Grohl, but apparently that didn’t cross the mind of the people behind the yearly award show.

Instead of replacing one of the other lackluster performances during the three-hour show, the runner decided to end the show with a high by putting the show at the end.

Understandable, keep the best of last and end on a high note, but how they did it is what drove Reznor nuts to the point that he took to Twitter to air his grievance about the decision to cut the performance short and put in all the advertisements for the event in its place.

Reznor tweeted the following about the decision: “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.”

It took three days, by Reznor received an apology from Grammy executive producer, Ken Ehrlich. “I’m sorry he was upset,” Ehrlich told the Hollywood Reporter. “I was really thrilled that we were finally getting him on the Grammys.”

He continued, “The final jam started with Arcade Fire a few years ago, and LL Cool J last year. I want to end on a high, an up note. I did tell them we’d take it as long as we could. The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get.”

Where to Stream the 2014 Grammys

2014grammta

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards is upon us with just a few hours until music’s biggest night is set to take place. With performers such as Katy Perry, Metallica, Daft Punk, P!nk and Nate Ruess, and many more this year has a little bit of everything for each music lover.

Another big thing to look forward to? The reunion of the remaining Beatles, aka Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr who will be receiving a big honor on tonight’s show: the Lifetime Achievement Award.

This honor should not come as a surprise, since the Beatles are one of the most iconic and influential bands in pop music history. The honor also comes a week of so before the 50th anniversary of when the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show; their first ever, U.S. performance.

McCartney will reportedly accept the award on behalf of Starr and the late John Lennon and George Harrison.

Anyways, for those not able to watch the show live from the comfort of their couches on their television screens, the live streaming link can be seen here.

We will also be updating the winners list as the night progresses, so do keep an eye out for that too.

The Grammys will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles beginning at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.

The 56th Annual Grammys Reveal Closing Performers

QueensQotsa2013

The Grammys are set to take place this Sunday and already, organizers have revealed who will be taking the stage at the annual music award ceremony.

Previously, it was confirmed that Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, P!nk, Katy Perry, Lorde, and Metallica would all be taking the stage to perform during the live event and now another group of performers had been added to the list.

Today, it was revealed that Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Fleetwood Mac guitarist/singer Lindsey Buckingham will be closing the Grammys with a special performance.

Queens of the Stone Age will be performing at the Grammys in celebrations of their three nominations for Like Clockwork...including nominations in the Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical categories.

Nine Inch Nails and Dave Grohl were also nominated for awards this year as well. Nine Inch Nails were nominated for Best Alternative Music Album for Hesitation Marks while Dave Grohl is up for two awards for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media for his work on Sound City: Real To Reel.

Talk about a way to end a show.

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast Sunday, January 26, at 8p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

Grammy Performers List Released

grammy

The Grammys have finally given viewers what they have been waiting for; a list of performers for the award show.

Last month, it was announced that Daft Punk would be taking the stage at the Grammys to perform and today, it was officially confirmed that they would be taking the stage with a number of guests including Pharrell, Nile Rodgers, Chris Caswell, Nathan East, Omar Hakim, Paul Jackson Jr.,and the Random Access Memories session players.

Lorde, one of 2013’s biggest breakouts will also be taking the stage to perform. The New Zealand singer was nominated for a total of four award including both Song of the Year and Record of the Year for her hit song, “Royals” as well as Best Pop Vocal Album for her album, Pure Heroine.

Katy Perry is another radio mainstay with the power to garner two nominations at this year’s event and sing (hopefully) during the live show. Her empowering anthem, “Roar” was nominated for both Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

And while his song might be one of the most controversial song of 2013, it didn’t stop if from being the biggest song of the year. Robin Thicke and his “Blurred Lines” will also be taking the stage at the show. The song may have earned him “Sexist of the Year” by a British organization, but it didn’t stop him from earning three Grammy nominations for it.

But while the list includes some of the biggest names in pop music at this moment, one of the biggest shocks was the addition of metal gods, Metallica. Metallica will be taking the stage for the first time in 23 years. Their Metallica Through the Never (Music From the Motion Picture) soundtrack has been nominated for Best Recording Package. That means if they win, the actual band wouldn’t win; the award would go to the art directors.

Impressive, a little bit of everything for those with different tastes. The Grammys air live on Sunday, January 26 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS.
