Grammys Producer Ken Ehrlich Says He Meant ‘No Disrespect’ By Leaving Joan Rivers Out Of The ‘In Memoriam’ Segment!

joan rivers left out of in memoriam

During the Grammys on Sunday, February 8th, there was one pretty huge snub during the In Memoriam segment…

Joan Rivers! And she’d JUST won a Grammy that night for Best Spoken Word Album!

So, what was the deal? Why would they leave her out!

Well, according to the show’s producer Ken Ehrlich, they cut her out of the remembrance because of the time limits imposed on the show!

However, don’t get TOO angry just yet, his reasoning is PRETTY valid.

He explained:

“I try and put a time limit on the ‘In Memoriam’ and just have to make choices at some point. No disrespect at all. I actually knew Joan and worked with her from time to time.

I think it was just that her Grammy involvement was certainly less than Robin’s. There’s only so much we can do, and we have to make hard choices when it comes to things like that.”

Hmmmm… while it’s sucks they left her out, we DO see his point…

However, they couldn’t have spent one extra second on her picture?

Seems kind of iffy to us. What do YOU think about his reasons?
