Post Grammy Wrap Up: Taylor Swift, Trent Reznor, Macklemore, Cory Monteith, Keith Urban

Here are a few highlights (or lowlights?) from last night’s Grammy 2014 awards:

Good news. The late glee star, Cory Monteith, was included in the In Memoriam montage. Bad news. His name was spelled wrong.


Taylor Swift’s Red was up for best album of the year. As Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories was announced as the winner, watch the singer start with the surprise face before she realized she didn’t win. The people sitting around her thought she won too.

Speaking of Album of the Year, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ Heist nabbed the Best Rap Album award, and all the Rap awards, actually, which quickly caused a backlash on twitter from fans outraged that respected rapper, Kendrick Lamar, was snubbed.

Macklemore, perhaps feeling the heat and fearing the backlash, texted Kendrick AND POSTED THE PRIVATE TEXT TO INSTAGRAM:

You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It’s weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the speech. Then the music started playing during my speech and I froze. Anyway, you know what it is. Congrats on this year and your music. Appreciate you as an artist and a friend. Much love.

The instagram caption read:

My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys

Maybe a thing better left private?

Finally, the nearly 4 hour ceremony ended with a blistering performance by Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham. Sadly, it was cut short by CBS which began running credits and voice overs halfway through the song. NIN’s Trent Reznor expressed his displeasure afterward on twitter:


UPDATE: Check out American Idol judge, Keith Urban tearing up, during the Macklemore performance of “Same Love” as Queen Latifah officiated 33 weddings.
