Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Same Love" Grammy Performance Includes 33 Weddings

UPDATE: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are joined by Madonna and Queen Latifah in a performance of "Same Love" at the Grammys where 33 couples were married.

The Grammy Awards have featured numerous memorable moments and performances in the past and during this year's ceremony, the awards will present something unprecidented.

According to The New York Times, The 2014 Grammys are slated to feature 34 couples being married on-air as Macklemore and Ryan Lewis perform their marriage equality-based song "Same Love." Marriages will reportedly be between differnet groups of people, including people who are gay, straight, young, old and of different ethnicities and nationalities.

Ryan Lewis recently said that the weddings, “Will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality, that all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.” Among those to be married is Lewis' sister, Laura who is currently engaged to her boyfriend, Alex. “A night that is already tremendous for me, for the music,” Ryan Lewis said, “but to have my sister get married and my family there watching it—that makes it a whole other level of amazing.”

Madonna is set to join Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on-stage during their performance. Actress and former Hip Hop emcee Queen Latifah will officiate the nuptials for the weddings, which according to Neil Portnow, president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, who present the Grammys, says will create some controversy.

“I expect that people with all kinds of opinions might voice them, and that’s healthy,” he said. “We don’t need to stoop to the level of trying to find gimmicks and sensationalistic approaches to what we do.”

The 56th Grammy Awards is rumored to feature Jay Z and Beyonce opening the show, which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Grammys have a long history of using performances to show the unification of people. In 2001, Elton John and Eminem performed together creating some controversy as many claimed Em's lyrics were "homophobic" at the time.

(January 26) 

UPDATE: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were joined by Madonna for a rendition of "Same Love." During the performance, Queen Latifah officiated 33 weddings at one time.

    We live in a world where their are gays, I understand that but they should focus more on just living there lives vs. worrying about gay bashing. Being gay and disliked is not the same as being black and having to deal with people throwing the "N" word around. The hay lifestyle is not what nature intended. They can't have kids, gay men have sex I the butt and lesbians can't properly climax. My biggest concern are the gay couples that do want kids. They have to grow up having this lifestyle thrown in there faces instead of witnessing a true healthy relationship the way God intended.

    • mas

      gay people don't believe in god so you never gonna get them to listen if your argument is "god says so". if you wanna stop ppl from being gay come up with a better argument than that.

      Still true no matter who said it the proof is the headline, the article, and Sunday show. Whatever he did does not trump what you see at this very moment in front of your eyes. You would have to be delusional or just ignorant to not see what's going on.

      You cant do gay shit and then complain about gay people! It doesn't work like that. He should have considered that before he cashed a check to take off his clothes and get in a shower with another man with their dicks out for the world to see!

      Whatever he was right now the best you can do is reminisce about his naked body everytime his name comes up. Sorry you're sad about that.

      He talked about how the RAP GAME was getting gayer by the minute and he's been proven right. Yeah he did a nude scene for a TV SHOW that's been cancelled since before you were born probably, now if he did a shower scene with a guy in a Brand Nubian video then you have something to stand on. You can talk about how old he might be, what he did as an actor, but you can't say he's wrong about what he said and none of you grown crack babies been able to dismantle that in none of his posts because the evidence is above you or on your dvr, youtube and anywhere you get your hip hop from. Tell me he's lying and I'll tell you to scroll up and try to deny what you just saw.

    Whacklemore is an opportunist, he talks about consumerism and corporate influence in music but will be the first one to do whatever commercial will have him. This hack got big in the low competition seattle hip hop scene by seeing an opportunity when some seattle mariners announcer died and he made a song about the guy. This guy is a cornball, Lady Gaga with some flow. This guy has more grammys than Snoop Dogg,Nas and Too short combined. Hip Hop is Dead

      Why'd you mention Too Short with Nas and Snoop lol

      That's whats sad, Biatch!! That corporate hip hop found the Lady Gaga of rap and you lemmings ate that shit up and asked for more. In the coming years if he does not get vanilla Iced he will put on another cock show for you and denounce the fur he wore and wear meat instead and have guys lick it off of him

    i'm not going to rant to hard about it (i think most my friends/family know that i support gay marriage...if two people love one another - they should be together), however...if someone tunes into the Grammy's (i choose not to...because it truly isn't about the music anymore)...what makes anyone think people want to see a man marry another man, woman marry another woman, a cat marry a dog, or a "traditional marriage" for that matter? Isn't it an AWARDS SHOW? I would never force my beliefs on another person, NEVER....i would appreciate the same from everyone else. Furthermore- whacklemore is not gay, he just wants gays to buy his music

    "The normal people that dislike things simply ignore those things but weird people have to bitch and moan like whores about every little thing they dislike." I'm trying to figure out why that Rick Ross groupie who said the above quote to someone and who clearly hates Macklemore would be clicking on articles about his Grammy performance including weddings just to bitch and moan about white people and homos?

    European culture is rooted in homosexuality, you can see it in their ancient art and sculptures and extensively in their writings. Homosexuality even permeats in their institutions of religion. It's no surprise that abnormal human behaviors like homosexuality are promoted and encouraged in American society this country was invaded by Europeons who brought their mores and norms to America.

      I agree that the Albino colored people should have stayed in Europe, the Bubonic plague nearly wiped them out but like roaches some of them survived. They brought their disease flesh to America and nearly exterminated the Native Americans with their diseases. One of the leper colored people suggested that they should have left us alone to build pyramids.....whenever one of the white-skins say "go back to Affica" remind them that all humans came from Affica and that white skinned people are simply a mutated genetic recessive African with Neanderthal genes. Use a Google search or visit your local library to research the facts that I posted.

      GOD DAMNMIT ITS TRUE The Seattle hip-hop duo just won three straight awards: rap album for The Heist, rap performance for Thrift Shop and rap song, also for Thrift Shop. In the latter, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis not only beat Kanye Wests bracing New Slaves but also the feel-good tale of success Started From the Bottom from Drake. The big loser, however, is local artist Kendrick Lamar. Grammy voters went with the more pop-leaning Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, an act that often delivers hip-hop as if it were arena rock, rather than the more hard-hitting street-life tales favored by Lamar.

      grammies havent started yet though? pre awards?

  • DUMMIESONHHDX

    Macklemore & Ryan Louis are the biggest government plants in hip hop. This is why people believe in the illuminati when you have media figures in the spotlight, at the awards, on the radio, etc. preaching a way of life that not all people support, but is forcing it upon the masses as "correct."
