2012: David Guetta, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Foo Fighters, Deadmau5, Make Hilarious Attempt to Show EDM on TV
"I'm leaving for tour tomorrow and there wasn't enough time for what I wanted to do, prepare," Skrillex told Billboard about why he didn't land his awesome spaceship on the Grammy stage.

Likely scared that a French fortysomething twisting knobs and a dude in a blinking mouse head might not make the most compelling television, they had Foo Fighters "jam" with the Mau5. The intention was probably supposed to spark "Hey, this isn't that much different than rock" debates, but it just seemed like a mash-up that wouldn't blend.
