The Grammys had a very emotional In Memoriam segment near the end of their broadcast last night that paid tribute to Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington, Dolores O’Riordan, and many other musicians we’ve lost in the last year.

Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris performed a touching Tom Petty tribute.

The following names were mentioned in the In Memoriam segment this year: Tom Petty, Walter Becker, John Warren, Gord Downie, Ray Thomas, Cuba Gooding Sr., Chuck Berry, David Cassidy, Glen Campbell, Troy Gentry, Bill Hearn, Fats Domino, Kelly Smith, Sylvia Moy, Wayne Cochran, Leon Ware, Gregg Allman, James Cotton, Rick Hall, Jimmy Beaumont, Jay Lowy, Paul Buckmaster, Joni Sledge, Don Williams, Mel Tillis, Jon Hendricks, Grady Tate, Roberta Peters, Jerry Lewis, Jim Nabors, Prodigy, Lil Peep, Reggie Ossie, Chris Cornell, Ed Greene, Harry Sandler, Edwin Hawkins, Della Reese, Dave Valentin, Jerry Ross, Tom Coyne, and Dolores O’Riordan, Chester Bennington.

The Linkin Park frontman was the last name that was highlighted before a performance by Logic, who performed his suicide prevention song “1-800-273-8255.” The title of the song is the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. We tragically lost Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell to suicide last year.

    A big thanks to Logic for singing this song 1-800-273-8255! I wonder if that bothered the wife?

    Grammy viewership at a potential all time low. Great news!

      It gets worse and worse each year. I tuned in hoping for a tribute to Cornell but nothing except saying his name in memoriam

      • Kay B

        Totally agree.

        • Cathy

          …And the tribute to Tom Petty was mediocre. They spent more time knocking the President than celebrating these music legends.

      • Olga Stewart

        I figured if they weren’t going to include the rock categories as a part of the main show, then they probably weren’t going to do both a proper and fitting tribute to Chris.

    • Olga Stewart

      Award shows have now become a soapbox for people’s political views.

      This is why I no longer watch them.

      • Joe Costigan

        well that and the music is absolute shit!

        • Olga Stewart

          My husband was playing music off of his phone the other day.

          A rap song came on. And I couldn’t listen to maybe more than twenty seconds of it.

          God but it was awful.

  • Olga Stewart

    I didn’t realize that Patti Labelle had a sister.

    And I’m very sorry for Patti’s loss.

      Denise LaSalle is not Patti LaBelle’s sister. Patti does/did have 3 sisters that all died of cancer in their early 40’s.

        Oh gee but I misread her surname incorrectly.

        And thank you for putting me right on that.

      • Olga Stewart

        I am so very sorry to hear about what happened to all of Patti’s sisters.
