Grammy’s In Memoriam Misspells ‘Glee’ Actor’s Name


In memoriams have had a history of ruffling feathers in years past for either the omission of a certain person’s name (re: Farrah Fawcett, Etta James, Andy Griffith), or just being incredibly morose (see: the 2013 Emmy Awards). However, it is hard to remember the last time a late star’s name was blatantly misspelled. Unless of course you watched last night’s 56th annual Grammy Awards, which paid tribute to the late actor Cory Monteith, famous for his role on Glee. A kind gesture, muddied by the misspelling of his surname to read “Montieth” on the screen. Twitter was outraged; most of the public didn’t notice; nobody was thrilled.
