Last night was music’s “Biggest Night”. The Grammys went down. It’s a long awards show. Last night’s telecast clocked in at about 3 hours and 45 minutes. But it should have been two minutes longer.
I will say that there were some great performances. I really liked Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite (pre-telecast), Lorde, Casey Musgraves & Metallica with Lang Lang. The one that was supposed to be the big one was the grand finale! Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl & Lindsay Buckingham. We weren’t sure what they were going to play, but who cares?! With that line up they could sing the alphabet and it would still rock. It turns out that they played Nine Inch Nails “Copy Of A” and then into Queens Of The Stone Age “My God Is The Sun”….well part of it. Here’s the video of it.
(It probably won’t be up for long……..)
As you can tell by the end, they cut off Queens Of The Stone Age! What? This is the big finale!! We waited hours for this. How disrespectful can they be? This is terrible! Sadly, they did it last year too. Remeber when they cut off Public Enemy & LL Cool J? That happened. I even made the joke when it was announced that they better not cut this one off. Sadly, I was right and they did.
Now I’m not sure whose decision it was to cut it off. It could have been CBS or The Grammys. Both have been quiet.
You know who hasn’t been quiet? Trent Reznor. He tweeted this after….
Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl & Lindsay Buckingham have been quiet. But I think that Trent covered it pretty well.
Trent’s never been a fan of the Grammys. This is a tweet from 2010 that he posted. It was deleted but i can bet he feels even more like this today.
I have heard that they may release the rehearsal footage online to make up for it. Only a rumour. If it does happen you bet I’ll post it here for you.
I think it’s safe to say we’ll never see Nine Inch Nails & Queens Of The Stone Age on or even attend the Grammys again. Which is really two bad.
