The performance was taken to another level with the addition of Madonna, who lent her vocals to the "Heist" track by transitioning into a rendition of "Open Your Heart." Hours before the show, news leaked that Macklemore and Madonna's performance would host the marriage ceremonies of 33 couples, to be officiated by Queen Latifah.
Uh, I was under the impression that Queen Latifah's title was purely ceremonial?— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) 4 years ago
