Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor blasted CBS-TV on Twitter Sunday night (January 26th) after the network cut short the closing performance on the 56th annual Grammy Awards. The final number featured Reznor, Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl, Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham doing a medley of NIN's "Copy Of A" and the Queens song "My God Is The Sun." But CBS booted the image to a corner of the screen while rolling credits for the show as well as sponsored ads.

About 45 minutes after the telecast ended, Reznor posted on Twitter, "Music's biggest night . . . to be disrespected. A heartfelt F*** YOU guys."

  • According to Rolling Stone, the nearly four-hour show had been running about 15 minutes late by the time the supergroup took the stage.
  • Reporters in attendance said the set ended shortly after the broadcast ended. Rolling Stone also confirmed that the final performance of the Grammy telecast is usually pre-empted by or played under closing credits or ads.
  • Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age and Grohl were all nominated for Grammys this year, but only Grohl went home with a couple, winning Best Rock Song for "Cut Me Some Slack," the collaboration between Grohl, other members of Nirvana and Paul McCartney from Grohl's film Sound City. The movie's soundtrack album also won a Grammy.
