executive producer Ken Ehrlich
recently addressed Trent Reznor
's "heartfelt f--k you"
rant following the cutoff of ceremony's all-star jam featuring QOTSA
, Dave Grohl
and Lindsey Buckingham
Although most media outlets have reported the story as a direct apology to Trent, this wasn't exactly the case. "I'm sorry he was upset,"
Ehrlich told the Hollywood Reporter
. "I was really thrilled that we were finally getting him on the Grammys. The final jam started with Arcade Fire a few years ago, and LL Cool J last year. "I want to end on a high, an up note,"
Ken added. "I did tell them we'd take it as long as we could. The number was about five, six minutes long, and we got to within a minute twenty of the end. We got as close as we could possibly get."
As reported, soon after the jam's credits cutoff, Reznor tweeted: "Music's biggest night ... to be disrespected. A heartfelt f--k you guys."
