Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Unleash Surprise Performance on NYC Bus

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Despite all their success, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings. The Seattle duo took it back to basics and surprised a bus full of New Yorkers with an impromptu performance in a promo for the Grammys’ “Music Unleashes” campaign.

With boombox in hand, they boarded the bus and started performing their hit “Can’t Hold Us” for the surprised commuters, who weren’t sure what was happening. Macklemore threw a paper towel roll around while he rapped and eventually the whole bus was standing up and clapping along.

On January 26, the duo will perform on a much bigger stage at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, where they are nominated seven times.

Watch them put a smile on the faces of some unsuspecting New Yorkers.

T.I., Robin Thicke, and Verdine White

The race for Grammy gold kicked off on Friday night at “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!! — Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night” at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Nominations in major categories were announced live on air during the one-hour CBS special, which featured performances from multiple nominees including Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Robin Thicke.

Seven-time nominees Macklemore & Ryan Lewis opened the show with “Thrift Shop,” which was nominated for Best Rap Song.

“Hopefully what we have been able to do this past year, it’s a model for other people to follow, that you do not need a record label, that you do not need a big company behind you,” said Macklemore, whose album The Heist was released independently.

Lorde delivered her Record of the Year-nominated hit “Royals,” and two-time nominee Miguel teamed with Keith Urban on a cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

With some help from T.I. and Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White, Thicke had the crowd in its feet with his Grammy-nominated hit “Blurred Lines.” His wife Paula Patton and father Alan Thicke congratulated him backstage on his three nominations.

Kelly Rowland, who was nominated for Best R&B Song for Fantasia’s “Without You,” presented Best Country Album and caught up with Lorde and LL Cool J.

Check out some backstage pics and watch the performances below.
