The 2022 Grammy Awards failed to pay tribute to Lata Mangeshkar in their Memoriam Section. Details Inside:
Fans of Lata Mangeshkar are disappointed after the late singer was not included in the ‘In Memoriam’ section of the 64th Annual Grammy Awards.
The absence of the legendary Indian playback singer from the 2022 Grammys ceremony, held on early Monday morning in Las Vegas, comes a week after the Academy Awards left out Mangeshkar from its homage segment as well.
Mangeshkar died on January 6 due to multiple organ failure. She was 92-years-old. The fans took to Twitter to criticise the Recording Academy, the institution that conducts Hollywood’s biggest musical awards night, for omitting Mangeshkar’s name.
“A little unrelated, but when they were paying tributes to artists who passed away this year and there was no mention of Lata Mangeshkar- India’s most loved singer, it all felt so futile and insignificant. These shows have no regard for ‘global’ music- only American.” Another wrote: “So both the Oscars and the Grammys failed to honor the late great Lata Mangeshkar in their respective memoriam segments? That’s a shame. #GrammyAwards #Oscars”
