The Grammys’ In Memoriam misspelled Cory Monteith’s name
The Grammy Awards would like everyone to know how very, very sorry they are about the death of what’s-his-name.
“Glee” star Cory Monteith, who died last summer, was included in the Grammys’ “In Memoriam” montage of musicians lost in the past year. However, the slideshow spelled his name “Cory Montieth.”
Listen, Grammys, I know you’re a drunken, long-winded stripper of an awards show, but if you’re only going to spellcheck one thing — one thing — it should probably be the names of dead people. Maybe next year, have one fewer fake blood cannon and put that part of the budget toward a proofreader.
“Glee” isn’t the only one with a grievance against last night’s Grammys: Trent Reznor is none to happy with them, either.
Reznor’s band Nine Inch Nails gave the awards show’s closing performance, along with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. Unfortunately, by the end of a four-hour ceremony, not even all that star power could induce people to wait around and listen – the Grammys began to roll the credits during the performance.
Reznor didn’t take it lying down. “A heartfelt F— YOU guys,” he tweeted.
