Oops: Grammys' In Memoriam Segment Gets Late Actor's Name Wrong THR
The Grammys ceremony had an embarrassing flub when it was trying to honor stars who died in the past year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the late "Glee” star Cory Monteith had his name misspelled in the segment.
Screen shots of the misspelled name -- the Grammys showed it as “Montieth” -- hit Twitter with critical remarks from viewers about the botched name.
“Someone’s getting fired,” tweeted Canadian journalist Mike Morrison, while another viewer wrote, “it’s 2014 & no one has spell check?”
Monteith, who portrayed Finn Hudson on the Fox show, died last July at 31. An autopsy said the cause of death was drug use combined with alcohol.
