    Jackson yelled sing it. He did that at the first show he did after Glenn's death. That audience joined in. I don't think anyone sang along tonight. I am so upset that there was no introduction or mention of Glenn.

    Exactly.

    They deserved an intro or something at the end. And then Glenn's video was not complete. Like they started it in the middle.

    They deserved much more.

    I know the guys did all they could but the grammy assoc. could have done more.

    Very disappointing in how this was handled. No introduction and they pretty much cut off the person talking right before they jumped to the video of Glenn.
    I agree the performance was the best they could do under the circumstances. I don't think Don was even singing at the start of the song, he looked like he was trying to keep it together more than anything. Thought Jackson was going to have tears in his eyes before the song was done.

    I just saw a post on billboard twitter that said they were presented with their grammy for Hotel California since they were not present when they won. It said this happened as they went to the commercial. Maybe, someone on here can verify this.

    They posted an article about it as well:

    "Eagles Get Presented Grammy for 'Hotel California' That They Didn't Accept in 1977"

    Billboard's a pretty reliable source.

    I think that this would be in very poor taste, under the circumstances.

    With Don being in eyesight of the camera right behind Jackson(we always see him behind Glenn when Glenn or Don is singing lead. I'm going to miss that), you could see his face more than the other guys. I was watching Don throughout the performance. It was just something about Don can't put my finger. It was like the poor guy just wanted to lose it. Just break down and cry, but he was holding it in.

    From the other closeup of the guys, they seem ok, but Don just wanted to lose it. He just looked soo sad. I wanted to hug him.

    Don seemed almost angry to me.

    I went back and rewatched it since I was watching it through tears the first time. Jackson really did seem to have a hard time getting through the song. To me they all just looked incredibly sad. Gosh, my heart aches for all of them.

    I think we just saw their last performance ever




    and I agree-Don looked angry and devastated and it was all they could do to get through it
