Aaron Carter fans have been left devastated by the Grammys after he was left out of the 'In Memoriam' tribute act.
Last night (5 February) marked the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, where the biggest names in music headed to the Cyrpto.com Arena in Los Angeles for this year's ceremony.
Though it was a night for celebration, there were also sad moments as the In Memoriam segment remembered artists, composers and music executives who have lost their lives over the past year.
Fans were left in tears as Quavo paid an emotional tribute to his late bandmate and nephew Takeoff, who was shot dead in November aged 28.
The rapper performed 'Without You' and 'See You Again' during the segment alongside Maverick City Music, Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, Mick Fleetwood and Bonnie Raitt.
In addition to Takeoff, Bobby Rydell, David Crosby, Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, Lisa Marie Presley, Loretta Lynn, Naomi Judd and Olivia Newton John were also honoured.
But one music artist left out was Carter, who passed away aged 34, also in November 2022.
Fans of the pop star have been taking to social media in outrage, with some threatening to boycott the event after the omission.
One wrote on Twitter: "@Grammys couldn't give #Aaroncarter three seconds of airtime with the longest Memorandum I have ever witnessed."
"Kinda messed up of the #Grammys to exclude #AaronCarter from their in memoriam on air video," said another.
A third added: "In memoriam of Aaron Carter - you deserved more. More recognition, love and time.
"Thank you for the music that got me through my childhood, shaped me as a person and why I wanted to work in music."
"WOW… #GRAMMYs forgot to include #AaronCarter in their memoriam for artists who have passed... DO BETTER," commented a fourth, while a fifth chimed in: "Where was Aaron Carter in the tributes? Not cool #GRAMMYs."
UNILAD has contacted the Recording Academy for comment.
In other news from the night, Beyoncé made history after becoming the most Grammy-awarded artist in history.
Meanwhile, Chris Brown was left raging after losing an accolade to an artist he hadn't heard of.
The singer was up against Mary J. Blige for Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe), Robert Glasper for Black Radio III, Lucky Daye for Candydrip and PJ Morton for Watch The Sun in the Best R&B Album category.
The gong was given to Glasper's album, which must have been a fantastic moment for him.
But Brown took to social media in outrage, writing in one Instagram story 'bro who the f**k is this?' and 'who the f**k is Robert Glasper' in another.
In case you're wondering, Glasper is an American pianist, record producer, songwriter, and musical arranger.
His win last night marked his fifth out of 11 nominations across eight categories.
While his focus has been predominantly in jazz, he's also worked with the likes of Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak, Banks, Brittany Howard, Kendrick Lamar, Denzel Curry, Q-Tip, Common and many other high profile names.
Hopefully that's enough for Brown to wrap his head around.
