Late singer, Aaron Carter’s name was left out of the In Memoriam segment

Aaron Carter, the former child pop singer, who left us with his untimely demise in November 2022, was noticeably left out of the In Memoriam segment of the Grammy Awards. Carter started his singing career at a young age and even showcased his talents while opening for the Backstreet Boys 1997 tour. With years of struggle and trying to find his voice, the young and talented singer rose to his fame in the late 90s. The teen heartthrob sold millions of copies of his albums worldwide.

The I’m All About You singer initially struggled with his addiction to alcohol and drugs. However, eventually, his addiction deteriorated following the rough patch of years with his music going unrecognized, ultimately leading to his death. The 34-year-old was found in the bathtub, back in November, allegedly dying of a drug overdose. Thus, his name being left out of the In Memoriam segment outraged his fans especially after several other singers and music industry personalities were paid tribute. Melanie Martin, the mother of Carter’s son was also taken by surprise when the late singer’s name was not mentioned. 

It was later confirmed that Aaron Carter’s name was acknowledged by the Recording Academy as per the list shared online prior to the actual ceremony. However, it was later omitted when the list went onstage. Fans are outraged by the last-minute omission of the teen sensation’s name from the tribute section. A representative of Nick Carter (Aaron Carter’s brother) from Backstreet Boys, reported to The Post through an email stating the snub was “so sad” by Grammy’s last-minute disgraceful change of plan.
