This year’s Grammy Awards ceremony has definitely been an awards show to remember but nothing could have topped the thirty three couples getting married to Macklemore’s “Same Love” performance last night (January 26). Towards the end of the performance, veteran artist Queen Latifah emerged with the couples intending to get married right in the middle of Macklemore’s performance and in front of tens of millions of people who tuned in around the globe.
As Queen Latifah pronounced the couples as ‘married’, Madonna showed up in a white cowboy hat singing a slowed down version of her hit 1986 single “Open Your Heart” with a choir backing her. It was a great display, as Macklemore’s vision of uniting people on “Same Love” was finally realized on this massive stage.
About officiating the ceremony, Queen Latifah told the press, “It was something I took very seriously, that is someone’s life commitment to one another, you want to make sure you do it right. That’s what sunk in for me. To have your wedding in front of 100 million people is pretty momentous. I can say I was here and that will not leave me. I look forward to dashing off and signing all their wedding certificates“.
