Trent Reznor tells Grammys ‘F**K YOU’ after closing performance gets cut off

By Daniel S Levine,

After the Grammy Awards wrapped, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor blasted the ceremony and CBS for cutting short his band’s performance with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham. He took to Twitter to yell “F**K YOU,” since audiences at home didn’t see how they ended the show.

“Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys,” the Oscar-winning composer tweeted around 45 minutes after the show ended.

Rolling Stone notes that the show was already 15 minutes late by the time Reznor and the other groups took the stage. They performed Nine Inch Nails’ “Copy of A” and Queens of the Stone Age’s “My God Is The Sun.” CBS then started running the credits on the screen and cut to commercials before “My God Is The Sun” finished.

The magazine notes that the broadcast only missed a few seconds at the end of the Queens of the Stone Age song. It’s also standard operating procedure to run the credits during the final performance so the broadcast can end at the last note.

Of the performers during the jam finale, only Grohl won an award. He picked up a Grammy for Best Rock Song - “Cut Me Some Slack,” which featured Paul McCartney. He also won Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media for the Sound City soundtrack.
