So This Happened Last Night: 33 Gay and Straight Couples Marry at the Grammys (Swoon!)

Can you say...BEST WEDDING EVER?

Not one for weddings, I have always thought the best wedding would be 15 minutes at city hall in jean cut-offs and a crop top (dressing up is a hassle, feel me?), but then again, I've never been married at the Grammys with an intro from Macklemore, an officiation by Queen Latifah, and serenaded by the other queen MADONNA! That's just what happened last night 33 gay and straight couples exchanged vows right there in the Grammy isles, according to the Daily Mail UK. In support of same sex marriage, Macklemore performed his Grammy-nominated song "Same Love," while Queen Latifah officiated the wedding (she had to obtain a license!), and Madonna closed the ceremony with a rendition of "Open Your Heart."

According toThe New York Times, Ken Ehrlich, the longtime producer of the Grammys, thought that having the couples onstage "could be viewed as more exploitive," so he placed them in the isles, noting that "I don't want them to feel as though they'e on parade."

We're happy that same-sex marriage is being recognized alongside straight marriages on the Grammy platform, especially to the tune of a song that can be enjoyed by everyone.
