Grammy Awards to Air Same-Sex Marriages During Macklemore "Same Love" Performance

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be joined by Madonna at tonight's Grammy Awards for a rendition of their hit song "Same Love," and that's not nearly all:

While the hip hop duo performs their gay marriage anthem, 33 couples, many of them same-sex will marry in a collective, on-air wedding officiated by Queen Latifah.

Nominated for Song of the Year, and with marriage equality sparking intense national debate, "Same Love" was one of 2013's most talked-about records.

Lewis, the producer for Macklemore and the director of the music video (above), said the weddings “will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality."

That, he says, is that "all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.”

The segment follows what Grammy Awards organizers say is the ceremony's long, often profound history of addressing timely social issues through music.

The song’s featured vocalist, Mary Lambert, will also join Her Madgesty, Ryan Lewis and Macklemore, who are nominated for seven awards tonight.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are nominated for seven trophies Sunday, including Best New Artist and Album of the Year.

The 56th annual Grammy Awards air live at 8 p.m. EST.

UPDATE: Here's the emotional performance by Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert, Madonna and Queen Latifah, which brought the house down ...

Instead of asking "Do you take this person to be your....", why not ask, "Do you understand what you are medically doing?" That is, Doesn't the medical community recommend that you, "Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom."? Yet, now there are some in the medical community that now say it's OK to "Sleep with the waste that gets flushed down in the toilet?" and that it's possible to live a perfectly normal life.

USA - from Puritans to Impure-itans Any connection between beautiful New England and predicted disasters?
Take same-sex marriage. I would have guessed that a "sin" city (San Francisco? Las Vegas?) would have been the first to legalize it.
Oddly it's been America's birthplace that's wanted to be the first place to end America and its values! It's been a Nor'easter of Perversion (helping to fulfill Luke 17's "days of Lot") that began in (you guessed it) Boston in 2004!
New England has gone from the Mayflower Compact to the Gay Power Impact, from Providence to decadence, from Bible thumpers to God dumpers, from university to diversity to perversity, and from the land of the Great Awakening to God's Future Shakening that'll make the Boston bombings look like Walden Pond ripples by comparison!
The same Nor'easter has been spreading south and as far west as Washington State where, after swelling up with pride, Mt. Rainier may wish to celebrate shame-sex marriage by having a blast that Seaddlepated folks can share in lava-land!
The same Luke 17 prediction is tied to the Book of Revelation which speaks of the cities that God will flatten because of same-sexism - including American cities - a scenario I'll have to accept since I can't create my own universe and decree rules for it.
I've just been analyzing the world's terminal "religion" that has its "god," its accessories, its "rites," and even a flag. It's an obsession that the infected converts are willing to live for, fight for - and even die for!
Some claim that Jesus never mentioned homosexuality. Well, when gays have birthdays they don't say what they don't want but say positively what they do want.
Likewise Jesus didn't get negative and mention every sexual variation that He knew mankind would invent, but stated positively that marriage involves only a man and a woman!
Want more facts? Google "God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up," "Government-Approved Illegals," "FOR GAYS ONLY: Jesus predicted," "Filthy Still Club (Rev. 22:11)," and "The Background Obama Can't Cover Up." [The above message was seen on the always surprising web.]

Actually, it was only 33 couples and not all of them were same-sex. But it was still amazing!
