PHOTOS: Couples get married during Grammys ceremony
Their love might be the same, but their wedding was a lot more memorable than most people’s.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert and Madonna performed marriage equality anthem “Same Love” at this year’s Grammy Awards, with Queen Latifah officiating the event. The all-stars brought down the house with their joint performance, but the 33 couples getting married stole the show. Though Lewis told the New York Times that the mass wedding would involve 34 couples, the Huffington Post reports that 33 couples tied the knot at the show.
The ceremony included heterosexual and same-sex couples of different age groups and races. Lewis’ own sister Laura got hitched to her boyfriend Alex during the show. Lewis told the Times before the Grammys: “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.”
Queen Latifah was recently certified to officiate the weddings.
