Jennifer Hudson performs "I Will Always Love You" during the In Memoriam portion of the 54th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012 in Los Angeles.

*During Sunday’s Grammy telecast, Twitter lit up with messages wondering why legendary jazz singer Etta James and “Soul Train” creator Don Cornelius weren’t included in the In Memoriam slide show honoring those in the music industry who had died in the previous year.

The Recording Academy explained that the pair had already been honored, tweeting: “Re: Etta James tribute was by Bonnie Raitt & Alicia Keys at the top of the telecast & Questlove gave special attn to Don Cornelius.”

Still, some viewers disagreed whether that was enough.

“Can’t believe Etta James and Don Cornelius weren’t in the Memoriam,” Toure, a writer who’s currently working on rapper Nas’s biography, tweets. “I’m glad Etta got a tribute from Alicia, but she still should’ve gotten a picture in the Memoriam. It’s just a picture.”

“Thanks LL Cool J and Quest love for that,” writes recently suspended CNN analyst Roland Martin. “But just like Whitney, you add his photo to the ‘In Memoriam’ montage for historical reasons.”
