Though Sunday night’s GRAMMY Awards were a historic occasion, there was one outstanding performer who was not acknowledged — Naya Rivera. The Glee alum died this past July in a tragic boating accident, and her fans were very upset during Sunday’s broadcast when Rivera wasn’t honored during the In Memoriam tribute.
As a member of the Glee cast, Rivera received two GRAMMY nominations — one in 2011 and one in 2012 — for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Don’t Stop Believing'” and Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media for Glee: The Music, Volume 4.
Her fans quickly took to social media to call out the Recording Academy for the oversight.
Since you weren’t mentioned or did a tribute for you at the Grammys, here’s a tribute to you @NayaRivera we will always love you and always remember you 🤍 #GRAMMYspic.twitter.com/SqJR4SwFsA

Just want to mention I’m extremely disappointed that the tribute you had didn’t include naya rivera she’s been nominated before like how low
Naya Rivera just know that I think about you everyday. I'm still pissed at the Grammys for not even acknowledging you. You had an impact on many. They're disgusting and unbelievable for what they have done. Your fans will always keep you in thoughts, hearts and prayers. Love you
