As part of yesterday’s not-at-all-understated 56th Grammy Awards (we’ll post a full recap in a sec), Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took home four awards, got away with having the word “faggot” unbleeped, and sung 33 couples down the aisles to the tune of ‘Same Love’.

The couples married in the very public ceremony were gay, straight, and generationally and racially diverse, and included Ryan Lewis’ own sister and her fiance. “[It’s] a night that is already tremendous for me, for the music. But to have my sister get married and my family there watching it — that makes it a whole other level of amazing,” Lewis told the New York Times.

Regardless of how irksome you find the idea of a mass wedding, it’s kinda hard to deny how happy they all look. Also hard to deny? Schadenfreude:





The nuptials were officiated by Queen Latifah, and Madonna joined in at the end there too, with a white cane and her own song.

Oh, and just in case you’re not sure whether Macklemore’s the nicest guy in music this morning? Here’s a text he sent to Kendrick Lamar after winning Best Rap Album, which he then uploaded to Instagram to prove he agreed with the rest of the internet.

“My text to Kendrick after the show,” he wrote. “He deserved best rap album… I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And that’s taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC it’s proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. You’re the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. That’s what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys”
