Actress and producer Candace Cameron Bure said in an Instagram post that she didn’t watch the 65th Grammy Awards Sunday night (Feb. 5) because they don’t feature any Christian artists.
“Not podcast related but today are the Grammys and can we see some of the Christian and gospel artists on the red carpet,” Bure asked in an Instagram story. “Can we see Hillary Scott and Kirk Franklin and TobyMac and Maverick City, Phil Wickham? I would really like that.”
The artists Bure mentioned were all at the Grammy Awards and nominated for awards. Maverick City Music collected four Grammys for Best Gospel Performance/Song, Best Gospel Album, Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
Kirk Franklin won alongside Maverick City Music for his work on “Kingdom Book One Deluxe” (Best Gospel Album) and “Fear Is Not My Future” (Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song).

Scott was nominated alongside For KING & COUNTRY in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song category for their song “For God Is With Us.”
Bure later posted, “BTW- I didn’t watch the Grammys. No interest. They never show the artists I listen to. Just wanted to see red carpet photos of those I mentioned.”
None of the Christian artists performed during the live CBS telecast, which was watched by over 12.4 million people—the largest audience in three years, according to “The Hollywood Reporter.”
Viewers did get to witness an “Unholy” performance by Sam Smith and Kim Petras, which many Christian leaders have called “satanic.” Worship leader Sean Feucht told ChurchLeaders that Christians are witnessing “the worst filth, demonic, pornographic, perverted songs. What frustrates me is that we do not see enough believers in the industry speaking out against it…We see people almost embracing the affection of the world.”
