Quantcast

Ehrlich tease

HOW’D THEY DO THAT? Grammys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich takes Roy Trakin behind the scenes in a revealing interview, just posted in news. Here’s Ehrlich describing the genesis of the memorable mash-up of Bruno Mars “Locked Out of Heaven” and Sting’s “Walking on the Moon,” segueing into the Bob Marley tribute with Rihanna, Ziggy and Damian. The whole idea was inspired by listening to ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’” Ken recalls. “Bruno didn’t want to be on the show this year, but I called Kathy Schenker to find out what Sting thought about him. Frankly, the song is either an homage to The Police or a rip-off. Turns out Sting thinks Bruno is great, and wanted to be part of it. So I built this reggae number around ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’ and Sting came back and said he wanted to do ‘Walking on the Moon.’ Then I added Rihanna, Damian and Ziggy, and went back to Bruno, who agreed to take part.” (2/14a)
