33 couples get married during Grammy awards

French dance duo Daft Punk have won five prizes including album and record of the year at the Grammy Awards.

The dance pioneers, real names Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, never appear in public without their trademark robot helmets.

So they left the acceptance speeches to their collaborators. "Well, I suppose the robots would like to thank..." joked Pharrell, who also won non-classical producer of the year.

"You know honestly, I bet France is really proud of these guys right now."

Hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took four awards - best new artist plus best rap album, song and performance.



Justin Timberlake won three, while New Zealand teenager Lorde picked up two including song of the year for Royals.

The show was opened by Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce, while Madonna joined Macklemore and Lewis during their anti-homophobia anthem Same Love as 33 couples took part in a mass wedding.



Madonna and her eight-year-old son David Banda – who she adopted in 2006 with former husband Guy Ritchie – chose matching black Ralph Lauren suits.



When asked by E!'s Ryan Seacrest if he chose the suits, David replied, 'Yes I did', before adding 'Yes she does [follow my lead].'

Madonna added: 'We're both working the Ralph Lauren angle. He wanted me to wear this.'
 


However David chose funky black and white brogues to finish off his look while Madonna's walking stick, silver gloves and ever present grill, helped her look slightly different.

While David didn't have teeth grills at the Grammys, he revealed his mother is planning to buy him some.

He said: 'She said she'd get me a grill for this birthday,' while Madge chimed in with an excuse, 'We haven't had time, you have to go to the dentist and get moulds.'

When asked by Ryan about her grill, Madonna said: 'Yeah, I'm grillin'. It p***es everybody off when I wear my grill, so that's why I wear it. I wear it when I don't have to eat. Actually, I've learned to eat with my grill in.'

Speaking about her performance of Same Love with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Madonna said: 'I wouldn't do any old song with any old artist but I feel like history is going to be made tonight. So I want to be part of that.'

According to the New York Times, more than 30 gay, straight and interracial couples - including Lewis' sister and her boyfriend are said to have wed on-air during the performance.

Queen Latifah acted as officiant during the televised ceremony as the marriage-equality anthem is performed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In an interview, Lewis said that the weddings 'will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality, that all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.'
