Nine Inch Nails gave the closing performance at last night’s Grammys, along with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. Unfortunately, by the end of a four-hour ceremony, not even all that starpower could induce people to wait around and listen — the Grammys began to roll the credits during the performance.

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor was not cool with this, and if the Grammys expected him to keep quiet about it, they should have cut off someone who wasn’t a rock star.

Recording Academy president Neil Portnow explained backstage after the show that the decision was just a question of scheduling. ”We save the end slot for something that is a bit of a jam, because you can have the energy go and then it’s just a matter of the clock,” he said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Ah, that clears everything up. I am sure that Nine Inch Nails will be flattered that you consider their song “a bit of a jam,” and that you picked it specifically because people don’t need to hear the end.
