Two-and-a-half minutes into the track, Lamar enters rapping about martians, tater tots and wanting to be the first rapper on Mars.
“You got robbed. I wanted you to win. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you.”
Behind the Scenes at the 2014 GRAMMYS with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Daft Punk, Kacey Musgraves & More
What goes on behind the scenes at the GRAMMYs? Hear what winners such as Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nile Rodgers, Kacey Musgraves, Darius Rucker & more had to say, and find out which artist brought the press room to tears.
As Music’s Biggest Night continued, Macklemore swept four categories leaving Lamar empty-handed when the night concluded. The two friends faced off for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album, but Macklemore took the gold trophy home in both categories.
This year it seemed like the words “And the GRAMMY goes too” were hardly uttered during the night’s live broadcast, leaving plenty of room for the performances, which there were 20 of. All of which we ranked.
“The GRAMMYs actually heard the song and they stepped up right beside me, saying, ‘Hey, we hear you. We get it. We’re with you.”
33 couples made it to the ceremony, officiated by Queen Latifah (a certified minister in California), who pronounced the couples married after a very short ceremony, prefaced by the performance.
As the stage blazed with massive performances, it was the winner’s of the night that took the spotlight. With surprising upsets and grateful artists, here are the biggest winners from GRAMMY night.
Kudos to Kacey Musgraves & Taylor Swift; what were you thinkings to Macklemore, Ryan Lewis & Pharrell’s hat.
