Trent Reznor Feels ‘Disrespected’ by the GRAMMYs

By Shannon Carlin

For last night’s (Jan. 26) GRAMMY finale, Nine Inch Nails teamed up with Queens of the Stone Age, Lindsey Buckingham and Dave Grohl for a hard rock finale. Viewers at home only got a tiny taste of music’s biggest night’s final act, since it was cut short by a word from the sponsors — something NIN leader Trent Reznor is not too happy about.

After the show, Reznor took to Twitter to express his ire towards the GRAMMYs and, most likely, its parent network CBS for switching to credits and a commercial before their performance was all said and done. (Full disclosure: Radio.com is owned by CBS Radio.)

In the tweet, Reznor simply writes: “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt F*** YOU guys.”

The GRAMMYS were expected to run for  three and a half hours, but like most awards show, it went over the allotted time. This left very little time for the finale, which, based on what did air, was an arena-sized rock show that brought together some exciting and unlikely characters from all corners of the genre. (A quick shout-out to Buckingham, who rocked out to NIN’s “Copy of A” and QOTSA’s “My God is the Sun”  like he was playing “The Chain.”)
