Grammys 2019: In Memoriam Features Mac Miller & Aretha Franklin But No XXXTentacion…
From Mac Miller to Aretha Franklin, the Grammys‘ yearly in memoriam was as powerful as ever tonight.
And though it left out some curious names — like XXXTentacion, for example — it certainly made for an emotional moment on the night for all the viewers in the audience and at home.
Mac — who was nominated for a Grammy posthumously tonight, but didn’t end up winning — featured prominently in the segment, as you can see (below):

And XXXTentacion wasn’t the only artist left out of the in memoriam (below):
And then the @RecordingAcad left Vinnie Paul Abbott out of the In Memoriam reel. Thanks for reminding metalheads you don't really care about our fallen heroes, #GRAMMYs! RIP Vinnie Paul. pic.twitter.com/VX4rDU4lVA
