Backstage on Grammy day with LMFAO

February 2, 2010 |  8:30 am


The Times gave plenty of inches to the Grammys' winners tally, quotes from stars and unpacking What It All Means. But we thought you'd like to see the planning, wisecracking and behind-the-scenes machinery that an artist goes through on his or her first time being nominated.

We couldn't have asked for better hosts than the bawdy electro-rap duo LMFAO, who were up for (but did not win) best electronic/dance album and presented a bevy of awards at the pre-telecast.

We followed them from their hotel room into the limo, onto the red carpet and into their seats at the Grammys on Sunday. Read the whole story of their Grammy day right here, or watch The Times' red carpet interview with the pair after the jump. Who is that dapper, dashing fellow standing to the left of them in the video though?
