There’s a tradition at the Grammy’s. After the back patting, pissed acceptance speeches and the latest Lady Gaga costume is deconstructed via highly trained engineers, a stella cast of a-list musicians usually take to the stage for a closing ceremony consisting of an all-star collaboration.
We’ve now been promised that this year will be no different. However, this year we’re a little excited. The 2014 collaboration will feature Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. No news of the actual performance has been announced but this will be the first Grammy telecast for both Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age. Interestingly all of the artists took place in the 2012 documentary and soundtrack for Grohls ‘Sound City’.

We’re incredibly excited about this number,” Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a statement. “There’s nothing better than when the Grammys can rock out, and to have these artists all together on one stage, doing a number that, when they presented it to us, knocked us out, is going to turn out to be one of those Grammy moments that people talk about for a long time. Long live Trent, Josh, Dave and Lindsey and these great bands!”
The Grammys ceremony takes place this Sunday (26th January 2014).
