The 2023 Grammys Is Already Facing Backlash After Leaving Artists Out Of Its In Memoriam Segment

By Chelsea Stewart,


As you know, every year the Grammys does this in memoriam segment honoring those lost over the last year.

This year's included celebs like Olivia Newton-John, Lisa Marie Presley, David Crosby, Irene Cara, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, and Takeoff. It was probably close to three dozen people, in all.

But there were also quite a few names missing, from Aaron Carter to Gangsta Boo — and people are not happy about it:

So... Why was Aaron Carter left out of the memoriam? #GRAMMYs

@mariaxd322 02:43 AM - 06 Feb 2023

Now why I ain’t see Gangsta Boo in this tribute

@taycrawfordd 02:39 AM - 06 Feb 2023

Gangsta Boo should have been up there

@FREEDDDEM 02:40 AM - 06 Feb 2023

Leaving out Gangsta Boo, one of the pioneers of Southern female rap, from the GRAMMY memoriam segment is a sin and a shame.

@TheLexGabrielle 02:53 AM - 06 Feb 2023

Wow they didn’t say RIP to lil keed, or Trouble.

@TeddyStayGassin 03:49 AM - 06 Feb 2023

Not at all surprised but still disappointed to not see Jeremiah Green of @modestmouseband in the In Memoriam presentation. #GRAMMYs

People also noted that the segment left out Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters; however, Taylor was actually honored at last year's show.

The memorial doesn't appear to have been uploaded to any official Grammy pages yet, but you can read about those who were included here .
