QUEEN LATIFAH is reportedly to perform the group marriage ceremony tonight at the Grammys, according to the New York Times. E! Entertainment also said Madonna will perform with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
It’s some line up.
But the producers behind the program, which is to be broadcast live by CBS at 8 p.m., are hoping that the biggest show-stopper of the night will be a much more solemn event: an on-air wedding of 34 couples “” gay, straight, old, young, of many races and many colors. The ceremony will be part of the hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s performance of their Grammy-nominated song “Same Love,” which became a marriage-equality anthem last year just as that issue was drawing intense national attention.
