Grammys' tribute to Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins

The legendary rock band Foo Fighters was due to grace the Grammy's stage. Sadly, after the recent shocking death of the group’s drummer Taylor Hawkins, Foo Fighters, understandably, decided to cancel their performance. 

When asked if the Grammys were preparing a tribute to honor the late Hawkins, Jack Sussman, CBS’ executive vice president of specials, music and live events told Variety (opens in new tab): "We will honor his memory in some way. We want to figure out what is the right thing to do that is respectful to everyone involved. We’re patient. We’ll be planning right up until the very end."

While the details of the tribute are still being ironed out, viewers can expect to see a segment of the awards show dedicated to the drummer.
