Macklemore and Ryan Lewis cleaned up at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night, picking up Best New Artist in addition to three trophies in the rap category. But the night was special for reasons beyond golden gramophones: with a little help from Queen Latifah and Madonna, the group oversaw a mass wedding of 33 straight and gay couples during their performance of "Same Love." Rolling Stone recounted the duo's rise in a recent cover story, and the pair invited us along for a behind-the-scenes peek at their Grammy experience. 

Here Macklemore arrives to rehearsal at SIR studios to listen to the brass section's part of the performance.

On the morning of the Grammys, Macklemore makes tea with massive amounts of raw honey, lime and ginger. He drinks this remedy nonstop for his throat.
