Madonna Joins Macklemore & Ryan Lewis as Queen Latifah Marries 33 Same Sex Couples Live On Air

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took the stage at the Grammys last night to perform 'Same Love' while 33 same sex and opposite sex couples wed live on air. 56th GRAMMY Awards - Show Queen Latifah officiated the weddings while Madonna sang 'Open Your Heart' with Mary Lambert and Trombone Shorty, plus a gospel choir as their backing singers. 8c2dbc4f-5480-4ced-8e4f-f7e7acbc8e0e_Grammys-Macklemore-Wedding As Macklemore sang, “no freedom ’til we’re equal, damn right I support it” the auditorium erupted into thunderous applause - which was definitely one of my favourite moments of the night. Macklemore, Mary Lambert, Madonna, Ryan Lewis, Queen Latifah Latifah went through the official process of becoming licensed to perform weddings by Los Angeles County before Sunday Night's Grammys so it wasn't just a stunt, it was a genuine statement - which had many of the performers wiping away tears of joy at the end. 56th GRAMMY Awards - Show Right f-cking on. I look forward to a day in the future when there's no labels, or constraints on who consenting adults love or marry. Imagine people just being people - all of them with equal rights.

  1. That was incredible.

    Even though Madonna’s singing was atrocious, she has been a supporter of the gay community and an inspiration to it for decades so I can’t think of a better ‘first dance’ for the same sex couples among the 33, than being serenaded (albeit Willy Nelson-style) by Madge herself.

  2. Charlie's in Charge says:

    No reason to include Madonna. Adding her detracted from the moment.

    I liked that they truly showed it was about equality by showing mutli-racial, homo and hetero couples getting married. We are all the same. Love is love.

    This is so timely to me and I want to give a big shout out to KW in IN who is present at our state house today because they are trying to pass a constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriage. We need these steps forward towards acceptance!

      Poor old Madge, the paps can’t sell shots of her these days and it must kill her they’re not following her to Kabbalah etc. so she had to do SOMETHING to be talked about……

    Bragging rights – married by Madonna

    I effin love Macklemore. What a dude. One hot ginge. I think the live weddings were a bit gimmicky for me – reminded me of the Moonies – but I wholly support the sentiment. I was watching an amazing doc from 1984 yesterday called Before Stonewall. I revommend it. See how far we’ve come. Proud times.

  5. Flffgrrrlr says:

    Recommend not revommend obv – revomming is not recommended at all.

  6. Verveinc says:

    Celebrities are here in this matter. The case or the issue is a bit sensitive. Madonna is a lovely lady. I really love her music
