Madonna Joins Macklemore & Ryan Lewis For 'Same Love'
Queen Latifah & 34 couples were also welcomed on stage...
After winning four gongs at the Grammy Awardson Sunday night (January 26), Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed on stage while 34 couples got hitched in front of them, with Queen Latifah officiating the nuptials, and Madonna joining Macklemore and Lewis to perform Open Your Heart.
Noted New Orleans trumpeter Trombone Shorty also jumped onstage with the Seattle duo, who snagged Grammys for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance (Thrift Shop), Best Rap Album (The Heist) and Best New Artist.
The performance, which took place near the end of the show, was one of the more sentimental sets of the evening."This song is a love song, not for some of us, but for all of us," Latifah said before introducing Macklemore and Lewis. From there, the rapper unveiled the gospel-infused track amid a church-inspired atmosphere.
Then, as Latifah announced the marriages, Madonna — clad in all white — joined her, Macklemore and Lewis as the newly married couples walked through the arena arm in arm.
