Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are set to have a big night at this year’s Grammy Awards show. They are nominated for seven awards, including Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and the much talked about Rap Album of the Year. But even if Macklemore and Ryan Lewis lose on every single one of those nominations—hard to imagine—they’ll probably still be the most talked about group at the awards show, because during their performance of “Same Love,” 34 couples will be getting married on stage. According to The New York Times, the couples will be “gay, straight, old, young, of many races and many colors.” To top it off, Queen Latifah will be officiating the ceremony.

Producer Ryan Lewis explained that the weddings “will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality, that all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing.” The Grammys air tonight at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
