"This story starts in Columbus, Ohio," Joseph began his speech, while receiving a thunderous applause from the audience. "This was a few years ago, and it was before Josh and I were able to make any money playing music. And I called him up one night to watch the GRAMMYs [with some of my friends]. 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 the time, and he said, 'If we ever win a GRAMMY, we should receive it just like this. So, not only is this amazing but I want everyone watching at home to know that you could be next."
