MEGADETH's DAVE MUSTAINE Offered 'A Rose For The Lady' On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' (Video)

February 15, 2011

Parking-lot-security-guard-turned-late-night-personality Guillermo Diaz was once again dispatched by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to the red carpet of the 53rd annual Grammy Awards, which was held this past Sunday night (February 13) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Around the one-minute, 33-second mark in the clip below, Guillermo can be seen offering a clearly-not-amused Dave Mustaine of MEGADETH "a rose for the lady."

MEGADETH was nominated for the ninth time this year but ended up losing the award in the "Best Metal Performance" category to IRON MAIDEN.

For Mustaine, it was only the second visit to the awards, with 2010 being his first time finally making the trip. Why did he hold out so long? "Our band started off playing music that was actually directly opposed to the establishment; this kind of glitzy stuff," Mustaine told AOL's Noisecreep. "So we didn't show up the first several nominations. It wasn't proper for our ilk to be here. Now it's like we come because our kids want to be here."

When asked what he throught of his first visit to the Grammys in 2010, Mustaine replied, "It sucked 'cause we lost."

The nominees in this year's "Metal" category were as follows:

* IRON MAIDEN - "El Dorado" (from "The Final Frontier")
* KORN - "Let The Guilt Go" (from "Korn III: Remember Who You Are")
* LAMB OF GOD - "In Your Words" (from "Wrath")
* MEGADETH - "Sudden Death" (from "Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock")
* SLAYER - "World Painted Blood" (from "World Painted Blood")

Material released between September 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010 (a 13-month period) was eligible for the 2011 Grammys.
