Two same-sex couples from Utah are now married after a mass wedding ceremony officiated by Queen Latifah during the Grammy awards.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Spencer Stout and Dustin Reeser of Salt Lake City exchanged vows during the televised show, along with Sean Bishop and Taylor Knuth of Ogden.

Nearly three dozen gay and straight couples married in the middle of a performance of "Same Love," a song about gay acceptance by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Reeser and Stout gained online fame after they posted a YouTube video of their proposal, which featured a flash mob inside a Home Depot store.

The Standard-Examiner reports Bishop and Knuth were recruited for the show after posting a video of their proposal. The two met while attending Weber State University.
