PopCrushers, we've got a challenge for you! As the temperatures rise this summer, we're on a quest to determine the Hottest Star of 2014! In Round 1, we have Jason Derulo facing off against Macklemore. Who should advance to the next round?
We can always count on Jimmy Fallon to tackle the hard questions. His latest challenge? Finding out exactly what Ryan Lewis does.
Just try to imagine it: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performing at your wedding, alongside Mary Lambert and Madonna (!). Superstars like Beyonce and Paul McCartney crying tears of joy watching you get married. Celebs like Anna Kendrick snapping shots of you while you say your vows, repeating the words after officiant Queen Latifah.
Wow. Just wow.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis didn't just perform 'Same Love,' their commanding and potent song about same-sex equality, at the 2014 Grammy Awards (Jan. 26). The Seattle rap duo had couples of all ages, races and orientations get married on their cathedral-like stage during the performance.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' song 'Same Love' is nominated for the 2014 Grammy for Song of the Year. It is a powerful and watershed track, since it's about equality for same-sex unions. The rappers are putting their money where their mouths are, since 34 couples are slated to marry during their performance of the song at this year's Grammys (Jan. 26).
One of the best parts of an artist releasing a single is the music video that accompanies it. This visual helps complete the musician's vision and gives listeners an additional way to enjoy the track. The Grammy for Best Music Video honors the best visuals and this year's candidates undoubtedly upped the bar for future artists.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis acknowledged that they were an underground rap group when 2013 started. Now, they are one of the biggest acts in pop music. The pair performed on 'New Year's Rockin' Eve,' and before they took the stage in frigid NYC, they spoke to host Ryan Seacrest about scratching and clawing their way to the top.
