Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich has offered an apology to Trent Reznor for clipping off the end of his performance at the awards show on Sunday night.
Reznor, who took the stage with Nine Inch Nails , Queens of the Stone Age , Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac 's Lindsey Buckingham to play NIN’s "Copy of A" and QOTSA’s “My God Is the Sun” for the show’s finale, was furious after their set was cut off about three-quarters of the way through as CBS rolled credits and went to commercials. Shortly after the incident, the NIN frontman vented his frustration by tweeting , “Music's biggest night...to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys.”
Ehrlich says he feels badly about cutting off the show’s finale a little early, but notes he did the best he could to keep as much of it in there as possible. “I’m sorry he was upset,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter . “I was really thrilled that we were finally getting him on the Grammys. I did tell them we’d take it as long as we could. The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get.”
