    Breaks my heart to see Chris be remembered this way in front of a bunch of seat fillers.

    Shame that Rock has reduced to pre show and void of any audience !

    They could’ve done more for Chris Cornell than that. His award should have been televised and in front of a full audience. He and his family deserved much better!

    Where is the audience? Oh wait, Chris C wasn't a rapper or r&b type.

    This is why rock bands dont show up to these awards. They dont televise their awards and you could tell by the audience. R.I.P Chris

    This is ridiculous. A legendary vocalist gets bumped back to an un televised pre show. Then all the no-talent performers, who will never become legends, show up later and get all the attention. Time to smarten up Grammys. It's about the music, not the image.

    This was BEFORE the televised portion of the show. Unfortunately they do that now with most of the Metal & Rock categories.

    That is super weird not to have at least 1/2 the audience not there at the beginning of the grammys. Man award shows suck nowadays.
