Grammys' In Memoriam Segment Criticised Over Numerous Errors And Notable Omissions

The Grammys have drawn criticism over its in memoriam segment, which featured various errors and omissions. 

Fans noticed that the names of Spanish singer Camilo Sesto and the Cars frontman Ric Ocasek were incorrect in the video montage shown on the big screens at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

Ocasek’s first name was misspelled as Rick and Sesto’s first name was misspelled as Camile.

The montage also omitted Keith Flint, frontman of the Grammy-nominated band The Prodigy, who died last March

Silver Jews indie rocker David Berman, who died in August last year, was also missing, as was The Walker Brothers star Scott Walker.

He died in March last year and was famous for hits including The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Easy On Yourself.

Viewers of Sunday night’s ceremony were quick to pick up on the errors and omissions, calling out Grammys bosses on Twitter...

The awards show featured an impromptu tribute to basketball player Kobe Bryant, whose sudden death at the age of 41 came just hours before the event.

Presenter Alicia Keys opened the show with some words about the NBA legend, and after asking for a moment of silence, she was then joined on stage by Boyz II Men, for an impromptu rendition of It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye. 

Billie Eilish was the big winner of the night, with the 18-year-old sweeping to victory in all four major categories, picking up Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best New Artist.
