Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor has received an apology from the producer of the Grammy Awards.

Reznor's band joined Queens Of The Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham for the closing slot at the event at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Sunday night (January 26), but their performance was cut short by the closing credits and a commercial break.

Reznor took to Twitter to blast the organisers, writing "Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys."

However, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Ken Ehrlich says: "I'm sorry he was upset. 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 wanted to end on a high, an up note. 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."

Reznor has form in airing his grievances over Twitter. Ahead of their performance at Reading Festival last year, he complained that the festival promoter and headliners Biffy Clyro had "fucked us on production".
