"...lesson learned"
Trent Reznor

The Grammy awards are one of the most high profile music ceremonies on the planet, capable of drawing together countless stellar names.

Sadly, though, one performance at this year's event didn't quite go according to plan. An all-star jam featuring Dave Grohl, Queens Of The Stone Age and Trent Reznor was cut short, with the ceremony moving away to an advertisement.

Trent Reznor was furious, tweeting angrily to fans. Expanding on this, the Nine Inch Nails frontman has told 3 News in New Zealand that he will never work with the Grammy awards again.

Seemingly, the frontman spent a "long time" discussing the merits of the ceremony with Josh Homme, eventually agreeing to "do something with integrity on our terms".

"...lesson learned," he stated. "And the other thing is if we hadn't have done it, I'd be thinking, 'Well, what would have happened it we would have done it?' So I don't regret that we did it, but would I ever – in any situation – ever consider possibly patronising that event in any form? Absolutely not."

Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammy Awards, previously apologised to Trent Reznor. "I'm sorry he was upset... 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."
