  • Whatever  (Feb 11, 2019))

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

  • Kykk  (1 day ago))

    He'd be Corndog

  • Anibal Babilonia  (2 days ago))

    Thats what i was going to say! Boy they're loosing viewers!

  • Archie Mcaffer  (6 days ago))

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

  • Angela Davis  (5 days ago))

    Disgraceful Indeed. # Truth and Justice for Chris Cornell.

  • Ray Prince  (Feb 11, 2019))

    Seriously, what happened to the audience??

  • E Elle  (1 day ago))

    +Earl Sinclair I agree. I felt bad for the musicians who had to speak in front of an empty crowd

  • Earl Sinclair  (1 day ago))

    +E Elle That is the most disgraceful thing for music a "music-loving" awardshow could do.

  • Candace P  (Feb 12, 2019))

    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!

  • Angela Davis  (2 days ago))

    +Carolina1 I Agree 💯. Wasn't Chris's Thing. Way Better Man. # TRUTH AND JUSTICE FOR CHRIS CORNELL.

  • Carolina1  (2 days ago))

    He only cared about this stuff minimally if at all, from this crowd anyway so it's alright.

  • Mario Bertrand  (Feb 11, 2019))

    Chris Cornell is taking awards like a BOSS even when he's dead. LEGEND!!

  • Angela Davis  (5 days ago))

    Absolutely 💯 True ❣️. # Truth and Justice for Chris Cornell.

  • Punit Ojha  (Feb 12, 2019))

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

  • Mel Thom  (2 days ago))

    Punit Ojha Especially when you consider it started out quite the opposite.

  • Diane Marie  (Feb 11, 2019))

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

  • Robert Banyaga  (6 days ago))

    That 1/2 empty venue sucks! They should open the seats up to fans and then later if celebrities want to be seen, they should show up early! I'm sure many Chris Cornell fans would have been there for his family!

  • Tessïa Emard  (Feb 12, 2019))

    That's sad

  • Melanie Brantner  (Feb 11, 2019))

    RIP Chris To his wife and kids so very sorry for yourlose .

  • Angela Davis  (2 days ago))

    +Leroy Brown Damm Right She Did. Evil Greedy Selfish 😈. # TRUTH AND JUSTICE FOR CHRIS CORNELL.

  • Leroy Brown  (3 days ago))

    His wife had him killed.

  • petix len  (Feb 11, 2019))

  • nacho biz  (Feb 12, 2019))

  • Kaisersozze  (Feb 11, 2019))

    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.
