After Oscar Award Ceremony, now Grammy Awards 2022 also did not pay tribute to Indian playback singer Lata Mangeshkar. The 2022 Grammys in Memoriam segment paid tribute to Late Broadway musicians Stephen Sondheim, Taylor Hawkins and Tom Parker. However, did not name Lata Mangeshkar or Bappi Lahiri, who passed away this year. Fans have expressed their displeasure over this on social media.
Fans’ displeasure on social media
A fan wrote on social media, “How did you forget the iconic and legendary singer #LataMangeshkar, @mangeshkarlata in this in Memoriam segment this evening?”
Another fan wrote, #Grammys #LataMangeshkar Remembering all the musicians who died at the Grammys last year. By not remembering Lata Mangeshkar, she has made a big mistake.
Another fan wrote, #GRAMMYs did not pay tribute to the greatest singers of Indian history: #Lata Mangeshkar & #BappiLahiri
Earlier, the Academy remembered Irrfan Khan, Bhanu Athaiya, Sushant Singh Rajput and Rishi Kapoor in the in Memoriam section. So, when the names of the legendary singers were not taken in the in Memoriam section of both the Oscars and Grammys, fans were shocked.
