The Grammys always remember and honor the deceased artists during the event. This has always been achieved through the “In Memoriam” segment of the Grammys. However, they surprisingly left Aaron Carter out of that part of the show this time.

Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony offered one of the most touching in-memoriam segments in the event’s history. The emotional tribute to artists, composers, and music execs featured performances from Sheryl Crowe, Kacey Musgraves, and Quavo. Loretta Lynn, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie, Bobby Rydell, Naomi Judd, Lisa Marie Presley, and Olivia Newton-John were all mentioned. Aaron Carter sadly didn’t get a mention in the segment that made the fans furious.

Aaron has never won and was never nominated for a Grammy. This, however, shouldn’t be a sane enough reason to leave him out of the segment. He has left his mark on Pop Music. His “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” hit #35 on the Billboard Top 100 chart and “That’s How I Beat Shaq” hit #98.

A slew of furious fans has been seething over the omission of Carter from the Grammys. They have since taken to Twitter to let show producers and organizers know their feelings. Despite his name being omitted from the show, People reported that his name was physically written in the in-memoriam list for the show.


Aaron, unfortunately, died in November 2022, at the age of 34. He was discovered dead in a bathtub at his residence. Carter, the younger brother of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, has made a significant impression on his fans during the course of his career.

The Grammys have not addressed anything regarding this matter. They, however, have quite an explanation to give to Carte’s fans for this mishap. As for whether it was a mistake or done in deliberation, we hope to find out soon.
