Naya Rivera’s fans are upset she was left out of the In Memoriam segment at the 2021 Grammys.

The star — who died in July in an accidental drowning — was nominated in 2010 for a Grammys as a member of the “Glee” cast for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for “Don’t Stop Believin,’” but didn’t appear in the on-air tribute Sunday night.

“So disappointed in the #GRAMMYs for not including @NayaRivera who gave so much to the music industry so let’s all just take today remembering Naya the way the Grammys couldn’t,” tweeted one fan.

“since the recording academy failed to include GRAMMY-nominated Naya Rivera in the tribute, please take some time to think about her today. #GRAMMYs,” wrote another.

“naya rivera being left out of the in memoriam… it’s not sitting right with me,” said another fan.

“since the #GRAMMYs didn’t mention her i’ll do it. rest in peace naya rivera you beautiful angel we love you and miss you so much,” penned another.

This year’s In Memoriam was performed by artists including Brandie Carlile, who paid special tribute to country folk icon John Prine, and Lionel Richie, who honored Kenny Rogers.

Rivera was, however, included in a larger In Memoriam list published online by the Recording Academy.

Rivera died in July at the age 33 while out boating with her son, Josey, on California’s Lake Piru. Josey was found aboard the vessel, asleep and wearing a life vest, after Rivera failed to return the boat they rented that day. He told authorities his mom never got back in the boat after the two went swimming.

Five days later, authorities discovered Rivera’s body.
