Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, although much calmer nowadays than a decade ago, couldn’t believe the broadcast of the Grammys Awards cut off his performance. After sharing the stage with Queens of a Stone Age, Lindsey Buckingham and Dave Grohl, he unleashed a viral “F--k you” to the producers of the Grammys.
The Grammys had apparently already run 15 minutes over the expected time and the performance of the Nine Inch Nails song “Copy of A” and Queen of a Stone Age’s “My God is the Sun” were interrupted by the networks ads.
According to the Rolling Stone reporters in the audience, there wasn’t much more of the performance that the broadcast missed.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said he was sorry that Reznor was upset. Ehrlich continued by saying that he was really thrilled to get Reznor on the Grammys in the first place.
