This year's Grammy Awards were closed by Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham., but the all-star gig was cut short on television when closing credits and sponsors were shown instead of the end of the performance. You can watch rehearsal video of the entire performance above, but in a new interview, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor lashes out at Grammy organizers, vowing never to return and calling it "an utter waste of time."

We recently published an open letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, asking them to consider some of the greatest hard rock + metal acts ever for induction. But now we point our dissatisfaction at the 2014 Grammy Awards, which took place Sunday night, Jan. 26, and featured one rock and metal snub after another.
Already a two-time Grammy Award winner before the end of the night, Dave Grohl almost finished the Grammys on another high note. The Foo Fighters frontman joined Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails and Fleetwood Mac legend Lindsey Buckingham for the show's closing performance -- at least what we got to see of it.
It was only two weeks ago when we wrote about Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor using Facetime to interact with a terminally ill fan onstage during a performance in Las Vegas. That fan was esteemed concert photographer and journalist Andrew Youssef, and we've just learned he passed away from colon cancer on Nov. 30.
Trent Reznor gave a terminally ill fan the rush of his life during Nine Inch Nails' Nov. 16 performance in Las Vegas. Unable to attend the Vegas concert due to his battle with colon cancer, longtime NIN fan and photojournalist Andrew Youssef was given a special surprise from Reznor as he personally Facetimed with Youssef in the middle of Nine Inch Nails' show.
