Cory Monteith Name Misspelled in 2014 Grammys Tribute

by at . Comments

The late Glee actor Cory Monteith's name was embarrassingly misspelled during an "In Memoriam" tribute segment at the 2014 Grammy Awards Sunday night.

When Monteith's name flashed on screen in at the live event, fans and audience members were shocked to see that his surname had the "i" and "e" flipped:

It's a tough name to spell, and was just an honest mistake the editors regret, but it's still upsetting for many Glee fans still mourning the deceased star.

Cory Monteith was found dead Saturday, July 13, in a room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in downtown Vancouver after missing his noon checkout time.

An autopsy and toxicity screening showed that the 31-year-old died of an overdose, officially termed mixed drug toxicity, with heroin and alcohol in his system.

However you want to spell his name, he'll never be forgotten. It just hasn't been the same to watch Glee ever since he was taken from us far too soon.
