Trent Reznor Not Pleased with Grammys, CBS

Posted by - 08:02 AM on 01/27/14
Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) was not pleased with the Grammys and CBS after the telecast cut short his show-closing performance with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), and Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac).
trent_reznor: Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.

Did the same thing to Arcade Fire a couple years ago...its completely disrespectful. If this was Katy Perry, or god forbid Beyonce you know they wouldn't dare pull that shit...its a joke. Their performance had more artistic value than maybe all off the other performances combined...

As soon as it started cutting to credits I said....whelp Reznor's not going to be happy about this. I can't imagine the amount of convincing it even took to get him to perform in the first place.

The show/channel have time limits that have to be followed or else they'd lose tons of money. It's not disrespectful, it was a necessity. That how live TV is. Somebody must have gone over time earlier on.

It's still on the Grammys for not managing their time better. Don't overbook your show if it means you may have to cut off performances. It is disrespectful.

they were very adamant about getting people to wrap up their speeches and stuff. they were obviously on a tight schedule, and had to cut people off here and there. what did Reznor expect? that they'd go over their time so everyone could finish watching his performance? psh.

True but it doesn't make it right. If someone needs to always get the short end of the stick at the end of the show, don't make it three of the top musicians making new music in the rock world.

It sucks, but they literally cut off the last act every single year. At least they're performance ruled.

Semi-Sonic's drummer has a funny, similar anecdote about their playing of Closing Time at the Grammy's in his book "So You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star"
