Ellen introduced Macklemore and Ryan Lewis as her new hero's to her audience for taking a stance on marriage equality with their track 'Same Love'.  After their moving performance I think the audience agreed.

'Same Love' really is a moving track that will go down as the voice of a generation.  No other rapper has taken on a gay rights issue so directly, and the fact that marriage equality is at the front of most debates right now is only fuel to the fire.
