The January 26 CBS telecast of the Grammy Awards prompted more than 40 viewers to file indecency complaints with the FCC. The Smoking Gun broke down the beefs into three categories:
- Beyonce’s bumping and grinding with Jay Z
- The gay marriages performed by Queen Latifah
- Katy Perry’s blatant summoning of Satan
However, FCC officials received no letters about Robin Thicke's performance with Chicago.
