GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Win Best New Artist In 2014
The duo looked fresh as they accepted their award from presenters Pharrell and Anna Kendrick. Macklemore rocked an emerald green velvet tux and black velvet bowtie while Lewis wore a silver and black houndstooth suit with a silk black tie.
"Wow, we're here on this stage right now," Macklemore said, grinning. "First and foremost, I want to thank our fans, the people that got us on this stage…without them, there would be no us."
Following the momentum of their massive 2012 single "Thrift Shop" featuring Wanz, the Seattle rapper was nominated for a total of seven awards that year. He took home four wins, including Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for the aforementioned hit.
