The Grammys 2014 are sure to remain etched in viewers' minds long after the show airs. Why this year more than any year? Well, news has just hit that on Jan. 26 during the telecast, Queen Latifah will be marrying 34 gay and straight couples.

According to Rolling Stone via the New York Times, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will make the sweet, sweet music for this head-turning event. Their song, "Same Love," will be the anthem as these 64 people get hitched on TV.

So, will this mass ceremony during the Grammy Awards 2014 be controversial to some viewers?

Probably, but so be it. Grammy organizers know that some people will see this situation as, well, trivial.

National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences president Neil Portnow said, "I expect that people with all kinds of opinions might voice them. He adds, "... and that’s healthy."

Portnow contends that the weddings will be serious business. He says, "We don’t need to stoop to the level of trying to find gimmicks and sensationalistic approaches to [do] what we do."

So, with that said and acknowledged, move over "The Bachelor" Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici. You will not be the only ones to wed on the small screen on Jan. 26.

During the Grammys 2014, gay and straight couples of all ethnic backgrounds will marry during a ceremony that has Queen Latifah presiding and that has Macklemore and Ryan Lewis providing the musical accompaniment.

Now how's that for a show grabber that will have many watchers shedding a tear or two while watching this particular Grammys 2014 segment that will likely become legendary? What a coup!
