Host LL Cool J came out in support of the dress code.
"I don't think it's unfair to remind musicians that there's some families watching in the middle of the country and all around the world," Cool J told Access Hollywood. "They don't need any extra things happening for the families... This isn't the Vegas version of the Grammys."
