Who Are These Blonde Twins and Why Are They All Over the Grammys?

Every awards show red carpet should have a mystery to solve, just like the 2019 Grammys, which caused everyone to wonder: “Who are those blonde twins?” (If, like me, you just assumed that it was the Chainsmokers and went back to anticipating Cardi B’s performance, you were mistaken!)

To those who realized they were not, in fact, the renowned EDM duo, the pair’s identity posed an enigmatic puzzle — one that needed to be solved. As one Twitter user eloquently put it: “Who are those two ghostly white boys with grey hair I keep seeing in every crowd shot?”

Others, too, longed to know why they were in every single shot of the crowd. Who were they? Why was their hair gray? What’s up with their outfits?

Maybe they were from the past? Lost extras from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey? Did a hair dye brand try to pull a Fiji Water Girl and strategically place two people who used their platinum blonde kit on the carpet?

As it turns out, they’re actually none of those things! The Chainsmokers were not even at the Grammys this year, and as far as I know, time travel still doesn’t exist. The twins are not product placement either — they’re actually a musical duo known as Grey. Grey is nominated for two Grammys for their role in creating “The Middle,” along with Zedd and Maren Morris. Their real names are Kyle and Michael Trewartha. Another mystery solved.
