Twenty one pilots Go Pants-Free for First Grammy Award

At some point in their lives, even the biggest artists watched the Grammy's at home and dreamed of taking an award home and this was exactly the case with Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph of Twenty One Pilots.

Between 2015 and 2016, Twenty One Pilots went from one of the coolest acts in the underground to certified stars and hitmakers with songs like "Heathens", "Ride" and "Stressed Out". Apparently, the reason why the "Heathens" singers skipped the trousers had to do with a bet they made with friends, likely back when winning a Grammy seemed like a far-off dream.

But don't be fooled. Their decision to ditch the trousers to accept one of music biggest honours is actually quite touching.

"This story, it starts in Columbus, Ohio, it was a few years ago and it was before Josh and I were able to make money playing music". Joseph said that Josh turned to him and said "If we ever go to the Grammys, if we win a Grammy, we should receive it just like this".

Tyler Joseph, who served as the pair's spokesperson, explained the odd decision by saying he used to invite drummer Josh Dun over to his rental house to watch the Grammys with his friends.

"I want everyone who is watching at home to know that you could be next".

When it comes to the Grammys: no trousers, no problem.

There really is no dress code at the 2017 Grammys.

Hosted by James Corden, the 59th annual Grammy Awards ceremony took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 12, broadcast live on CBS.
