Best: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
Whether it was Macklemore’s quoting Martin Luther King Jr. and invoking Trayvon Martin’s name during his call for the end of racial profiling during the duo’s acceptance speech for best rap/hip-hop album or the act’s exhilarating, electric performance of “Can’t Hold Us” with Ray Dalton live from an arena in Miami, every time they were on the screen, there was no looking away.
