    In this Feb. 10, 2013 file photo, Frank Ocean arrives at the 55th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

    Frank Ocean has taken shots at producers of the Grammy Awards over their criticism of his performance at the 2013 edition of the show.

    Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich tells Rolling Stone's Music Now podcast that Ocean's vision for the performance was "faulty."

    Ocean fired back on his personal Tumblr blog that he experienced "technical difficulties" during the song. He went on to say the victory of Taylor Swift's "1989" over Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp A Butterfly" for album of the year last year was "one of the most 'faulty' TV moments" he's seen.

    A spokeswoman for The Recording Academy, which puts on the Grammys, didn't immediately return a request for comment.

    Alex and Maia Shibutani were scanning the crowd before their performance in the ice dance competition at the Olympic Winter Games when they saw a familiar face, "SNL" star Leslie Jones. After that, the "Shib Sibs" took the ice and won a bronze medal.

    Ocean withheld his album, "Blonde," from consideration for this year's Grammys, in protest of the awards' voting system.
