Just two months into 2016, the music world has been rocked by the deaths of David Bowie, Maurice White, Glenn Frey (Eagles Founder) and Natalie Cole.
The Grammys honored the fallen musical talents by featuring Lady Gaga’s stand out David Bowie ode and the musical mashup honoring Earth, Wind & Fire’s Maurice White.
But there was one name lost in the fanfare. A Natalie Cole tribute was notably missing from the in memoriam performances.
While the living Lionel Ritchie got his musical praises sung by John Legend, Demi Lavato, Tyrese, Megan Trainor, and Luke Bryan, there was not one voice lent to Natalie’s legacy.
Like where was Jennifer Hudson to sing “Unforgettable?” At least one song would’ve been appropriate to honor the legendary singer.
We aren’t the only ones who noticed. The twittersphere had a lot to say about the snub:
