    When Grammys can't respect one of the greatest of all time Chris Cornell then they are a big disgrace to music and always will be.This alone was the most deserving award of entire night and still those assholes were sitting like"what the hell happened"

    My dad is one of the biggest Chris Cornell fans and has loved him since his start.I'm almost positive that my dad would be very disappointed about the fact that one of the artist that started it all his award was presented in front of a bunch of people that probably didn't even listen to or know who he was . It should have been just as appreciated as every other artist that was televised.This is not fair to Chris or his family and I am VERY disappointed. R.I.P Chris Cornell. I'm sorry this happens to you.

    This is actually sad and heartbreaking to see his beautiful two kids up there without their father! I’d like to give them both a hug and tell them it’s going to be
    alright. You can see they miss their Dad very much. Wow! This Hit Me Hard! Too Sad for Words!😭😢😓 RIP

    What a disrespect to a great musician with all those empty seats 👎

  • Christina Greier

    This was the pre show ok or wtfever they call it, & it should've been awarded during the main event ffs. He was snubbed for far too long but this feels like he was pushed to the sidelines by them.
    Congrats though for the posthumous award Chris..#loudlove❤

    Chris Cornell Was Born Again Today!

    I was sent pictures of the Chris Cornell reincarnation this morning (You all don’t get any, that would be weird). It’s funny, because I had woke up earlier, saw the dogs in the living room of The Temple Of The Dog (An actually really common occurrence lately, but they usually sleep in dude’s room), and knew his Rebirth was happening.

    The very next album on my random queue: Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger, the one where I first became a fan of Chris’ music and genius.

    February 16th, 2019, some time around or after midnight, 9 months, 274 days (4 days for fertilization) after May 18th, 2018, the one year anniversary of Chris Cornell’s death. Firstborn of one of the few people in The United States I have ever had a civilized relationship with, and born to an experienced mother who seems to be a beautiful person. Her man seemed happy all the time, even when she was pregnant.

    ♪ Like The Sun We Will Live To Rise
    Like The Sun We Will Live And Die
    And Then Ignite Again ♪

    Chris Cornell Is Born Again!

    Long Live The United States, And God Bless All The Souls Who Chose To Rise Here Again Instead Of Giving Up!

      Lily was there. Vk is trying so hard to exploit these kids into stardom for her own greed.

Pure GREED.

      +natstar 1 Peace is the concept of harmonious well-being and freedom from hostile aggression. In a social sense, peace is commonly used to mean a lack of conflict (such as war) and freedom from fear of violence between individuals or heterogeneous (relatively foreign or distinct) groups.

      I don't find insulting late Chris Cornell's wife in the definition of peace.
      I do find some of what you said in here:
      Stupidity is a lack of intelligence , understanding , reason, wit, or common sense.

      +Rotten Apple Not really, both Susan and Vicky were pretty awful about things, and Chris had demons of his own too - it's just weird to bring up Lily when actually all three of the kids stay in touch with each other and get along. Chris was still on especially bad terms with Susan even after getting clean, even without Vicky in the picture
      They're literally just kids, don't bring ulterior motives into children losing their father please

      +Revolver Oshawott They only had a bad marriage because Chris was an addict and alcoholic during those times. The divorce was messy because of all the lawsuits which Vicky forced him on Susan. It was a dirty breakup because Chris and Vicky MADE IT DIRTY. Vicky was manipulating Chris and is now making money off her dead husband's legacy.

      That 1/2 empty venue sucks! They should open the seats up to fans and then later if celebrities want to be seen, they should show up early! I'm sure many Chris Cornell fans would have been there for his family!

      There are so many categories. So the show starts early. However, the performances etc stsrt later for the more popular categories like best pop album etc. The more famous people didnt arrive until later.

      +Nictric Scream with Timbaland would be the closest to that Category, he was always going back & forth - he also covered anyone who died in a Rock group or just filled in. SO TALENTED omg! Can sign anything, even Prince! RIP. very missed, but his daughter sang with him beautiful (Redemption Song) & she will soon take over! watch!
