Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Win 4 Grammys
The duo takes home the rap awards and Best New Artist, and 33 couples wed during their performance of "Same Love."
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are bringing four Grammys back to Seattle. At last night's award ceremonies, the duo took home awards the award for Best New Artist and swept the rap categories (Best Rap Album, Performance, and Song). While the guys came up short in the categories for Album of the Year and Song of the Year (losing to Daft Punk and Lorde, respectively), four Grammys is a record haul for a Seattle act and the night can only be considered a great success (even if Macklemore himself thinks Kendrick Lamar should've won the rap awards).
The ceremonies also featured Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Mary Lambert performing "Same Love." While the rendition started off in standard fashion, near the end of the number they were joined by Madonna, Queen Latifah, and 33 couples who were then married live on the air.
