Cory Monteith’s Name Misspelled During Grammys Memorial Tribute

We're happy when anyone pays tribute to late Glee star Cory Monteith (Finn), as the Grammys 2014 telecast on CBS did last night. We just wish they had gotten the spelling of his name right.

The Grammys aired on January 26, and during the "In Memoriam" segment, the ceremony paid tribute to people involved in the music industry who had passed away in the previous year. Cory died in July 2013 from a mixture of heroin and alcohol.

And while it's touching that the show aired a photo of Cory in the segment, his name was misspelled as "Cory Montieth," as seen from the video still above.

Given that Cory is so well-known, it's a little hard to believe that none of the Grammy producers caught the error before it was too late. Still, we realize that it was just a simple oversight and wasn't done maliciously.

Finn's death will reportedly be part of the storyline for Glee's upcoming 100th episode special. Finn's death will reportedly be addressed in a "significant way" in the episode, and we've seen a photo of Finn's jersey hanging in McKinley's halls from the episode's shoot.

How do you feel about Cory's name having been misspelled? Do you think it's no big deal, or do you find it disrespectful?
