The 56th annual Grammy Awards ran overtime on Jan. 26, and final performer Trent Reznor was not happy.
"Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys," Reznor tweeted directly following the show's end.
Neil Portnow, Recording Academy president, told reporters that, "We save the end slot for something that is a bit of a jam, because you can have the energy go and then it's just a matter of the clock," reported the Hollywood Reporter.
Reznor, frontman of Nine Inch Nails, alongside special guests: Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Lindsey Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac) and Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age), closed out the night with "Copy of A" from NIN's eighth studio album, "Hesitation Marks."
However, during their follow-up song "My God Is The Sun" by Queens of The Stone Age, Grammy producers cut into the live performance with credits and sponsor advertisements for Hilton Hotels and Delta.
The 2014 Grammys were said to already be 10 minutes past their allotted time slot before Reznor's performance.
