Ice T and Body Count had an incredible performance during the pre-show, even though it was marred by some technical difficulties, and there were a few rock awards given out during the show. Interesting to note that Metallica was shut out of all of their Grammy noms. Here's the breakdown:

Best Metal Performance:
August Burns Red – “Invisible Enemy”
Body Count – “Black Hoodie”
Code Orange – “Forever”

Best Rock Performance:
Leonard Cohen – “You Want It Darker” WINNER
Chris Cornell – “The Promise”
Foo Fighters – “Run”
Kaelo – “No Good”
