GRAMMYs executive producer apologises for 2022 In Memoriam omissions such as Joey Jordison

A week on from the 2022 GRAMMYs, executive producer Ben Winston has apologised for the annual In Memoriam segment – which this year left out Joey Jordison. As was pointed out online as soon as the video had finished playing, the iconic Slipknot drummer had been nominated several times, and was in attendance at the ceremony in 2006 to collect the GRAMMY given to Slipknot for Best Metal Performance. However, Joey wasn't featured in this year's In Memoriam video tribute (though he was in the long list on their website), much to the disappointment of the metal community.

Grammys barely move the needle in television ratings

Despite a night of feel-good vibes and performances by the music industry's top acts, the Grammy Awards barely moved the needle as a television attraction. The show reached just under 9.6 million viewers on Sunday, the Nielsen company said. That's a 4% increase over 2021's broadcast, a more intimate affair because of the pandemic, and the smallest-ever audience for the Grammys by a wide margin.
