Twenty One Pilots remind their fans of their humble beginnings at Grammys

On Sunday, Feb 12, the Grammys came on at 7 p.m.  Many musicians got their awards and thanked people, just as the Grammys go, but Twenty One Pilots turned some heads when they walked up to receive their first Grammy.

They were nominated for Record of the Year with “Stressed Out,” Best Rock Performance with “Heathens” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with “Stressed Out,” also.  They won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

Once Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun were going up to the stage, they started taking their pants off.  No one knew why, but they explained it. “This story starts in Columbus, Ohio. It was a few years ago, and it was before Josh and I were able to make money playing music. I called him up and I said ‘Hey Josh, you want to come over to my rental house and watch the Grammys?’ and he said, ‘Yeah, who’s hanging there?’ I said it was just a couple of my roommates just coming to watch the Grammys with us, and as we were watching, we noticed that every single one of us was in our underwear. Josh turned to me, and we were no one at that time. He said, ‘If we ever go to the Grammys and if we ever win a Grammy, we should receive it in our underwear,’” said Tyler Joseph, the lead singer in Twenty One Pilots, on the stage as he accepted the award.

Joseph also said, “It was amazing to win the Grammy,” and he turned to the camera and said to the people, watching at home also, that they could be next, “so watch out because anyone, from anywhere, can do anything; and this is that.”
