After this year’s Grammys granted awards to acts like Lorde, Kacey Musgraves and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, good vibes and celebration filled the air. Not for Trent Reznor, however. Yes, the Nine Inch Nails frontman closed the ceremony with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. So why the anger you ask? Because the ending performance was cut short significantly by a Delta commercial and a promo for CBS, which did not sit too well with the rock star (Reznor later took to twitter to give a “heartfelt FUCK YOU guys” to the awards show).
Well, Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich has now responded to Reznor via The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m sorry he was upset,” Ehrlich stated in the interview, “I was really thrilled that we were finally getting him on the Grammys. The final jam started with Arcade Fire a few years ago, and LL Cool J last year. I want to end on a high, an up note. I did tell them we’d take it as long as we could. The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get.”
