    Grammys are a disgrace to real music.

  • Laura Malizia  (Feb 26, 2019))

    Well they dissed Layne at the grammies years ago and remaining members of Alice in Chains walked out and I don't blame them one bit!

  • Scott Denja  (Feb 21, 2019))

    He tried show me how to live. Loud love. My crooked steps black hole in my heart. Say hello to heaven chris rip

  • Archie Mcaffer  (Feb 13, 2019))

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

  • Mbutta7  (Mar 22, 2019))

    Don't. Those wouldn't be the people Chris would want to acknowledge him. In an ironic way, the ones that loved him and his music the most, were also the ones that don't usually leave youtube comments or show up at award ceremonies. The ones that just listen to him and his music.

  • Laura Malizia  (Feb 26, 2019))

    I feel bad for the kids 💔😢

  • 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  (Feb 18, 2019))

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

  • Carolina1  (Feb 17, 2019))

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

  • Whatever  (Feb 11, 2019))

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

  • Tray B  (Feb 24, 2019))

    @whatever But he was versatile and he sang any and every damn genre even when "some" fans didn't agree with it. No one could do that like Chris. He was/is one of a kind. I don't think it had shit all to do with him not being R&B or a damn rapper, I just think that the Grammys are starting to get ignorant when it comes to Icons/Legends who are deceased. And that's BS. All these Award shows are becoming Trash and not what they use to be when all of the TRUE Legends were alive. That's no coincid...

  • Tray B  (Feb 23, 2019))

    That's the same thing they're about to do for the Oscar's. Alot of important people/winners will be awarded but not televised...

  • Ray Prince  (Feb 11, 2019))

    Seriously, what happened to the audience??

  • Chris Simpson  (Feb 20, 2019))

    +E Elle smdh!

  • E Elle  (Feb 18, 2019))

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

  • Punit Ojha  (Feb 12, 2019))

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

  • Mel Thom  (Feb 17, 2019))

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

  • Burt Reynolds  (Feb 13, 2019))

    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.

  • Mel Thom  (Feb 17, 2019))

    Burt Reynolds unfortunately not to the Grammys.

  • SYN30STM  (Feb 11, 2019))

    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

  • Mario Bertrand  (Feb 11, 2019))

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

  • Angela Davis  (Feb 14, 2019))

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

  • petix len  (Feb 11, 2019))

    So rock and rnb during pre show now? Why? Because there "No well knowm mainstream artists"?I remember rnb and rock during the televised show..not durimg the preshow.. what's happening to the grammys now?!

  • nacho biz  (Feb 12, 2019))
