The Grammys featured an interesting mash-up last night — multiple winners Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed their song “Same Love” with Mary Lambert while 33 marriages took place in the aisles.

Several LGBT couples were among those wed, though straight couples were married too. Madonna came out about half way through and sang a few bars of “Open Your Heart” and joined Lambert (a lesbian) on some harmony parts on her song “She Keeps Me Warm.” Ironically, Queen Latifah introduced the performance and officiated. (Read Blade Editor Kevin Naff’s blog on that here.)

It was a fairly gay Grammys — one of the Daft Punk speeches featured a shout-out to same-sex love while the “Kinky Boots” soundtrack brought perpetual ally Cyndi Lauper a long-overdue Grammy win. Kathy Griffin won in the best comedy album category.
