The hip-hop duo earned seven nominations, including best new artist, song of the year and album of the year. Only Jay Z's nine nods topped them.

"Seven is unbelievable," Lewis said. "We came here hoping for one."

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who was also nominated for best new artist, said in an interview that he'd rather Macklemore & Lewis win the Grammy.

"They've achieved so much this year in popular culture," Sheeran said, referring to "Same Love." "They really changed things doing a song about homophobia."
