Madonna’s here to sing her blessings -- hearts are opening.
A lot of joy on this stage-turned-altar right now. This, everybody, is a GRAMMY moment to remember.
It’s not just a GRAMMY moment to remember, actually. It’s even bigger than that. It’s TV moment to remember, something we’ll likely be talking about years from now.
Here’s a belated shout-out to Trombone Shorty, too, doing brass players everywhere proud. The guy can blow.
Good that there’s a commercial break, because I think we all need a minute to recover after all those nuptials. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Madonna get my vote for coolest wedding singers ever.
Ryan Lewis’ sister Laura was among tonight’s brides. Talk about tying the knot in style …
"... then I got sober and two robots called me and asked me to make an album." Hilarious!
Lookout, it’s final performance time. Here’s NIN ripping into “Copy of A,” off the new album “Hesitation Marks.” It’s trance-y and dark and kind of familiar — Trent Reznor revisiting his old days, but with a 2014 twist.
This is the kind of sonic assault NIN dishes out handily. And expertly.
And with Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham helping out, the attack level has been kicked up to fierce.
Way to surprise millions of grateful GRAMMY viewers, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham.
Let’s turn our attentions to Queens of the Stone Age now, though. They’re taking the reins with “My God is the Sun,” up for Best Rock Performance tonight.
This is another vocal assault (do you have helmets on, out there?) by Josh Homme. Fierce!
It’s an all-around ferocious song. Not sure about Lindsey Buckingham, but has Dave Grohl ever met a ferocious song he didn’t like?
Who's enjoying this the most? Impossible to say. They're all loving it. But so are we -- these guys are letting it rip. It's yet another impossible-to-forget GRAMMY moment. One among many tonight for the history books.
