Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took to the stage to open the "GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!" on Friday, performing their hit "Thrift Shop." They were joined by Seattle-based rapper Wanz, who features on the popular single. The performance kicked off the LL Cool J-hosted concert, where the 2014 Grammy nominations were also announced.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis nabbed nominations for Best New Artist and Song of the Year for "Same Love," written by Ben Haggerty (aka Macklemore), Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert and Curtis Mayfield. The pair earned Album of the Year and Best Rap Album recognitions for "The Heist."

The rapper-producer duo has been one of the dominant forces in music this year thanks their album "The Heist," which provided them with hit singles like "Thrift Shop," "Same Love" and "Can't Hold Us." Their current song, "White Walls," is climbing up Billboard's Hot 100 chart, where it currently sits at No. 23.

The recognition cements a year in which Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have become fixtures of just about every music-related honor. The duo stormed across the BET Awards, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and Teen Choice Awards, nabbing honors like Best Group, Best Hip-Hop Video and Rap Song of the Year.

This year marks the first Grammy nominations for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The awards will take place Jan. 26, 2014 in Los Angeles.
