Although Ghost won the Favorite Rock Album category at the 2022 American Music Awards for their current album Impera earlier this week, Awards organizers seem to be a bit confused as to who exactly they are, judging by the photo they used to identify the Swedish occult rockers at the ceremony held at LA Live’s Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 20.
A Ghost fan spotted the AMA team using a press photo of Los Angeles trap rockers Love Ghost to indicate the seats where Tobias’ Forge’s band would be sitting at the event, and now the others Ghost fans are outraged by the mistake. , which they say shows a blatant lack of respect for the group.
The mishap was spotted by a fan who posted an image of the incorrect photo on Reddit, writing: “Ghost won an ama! Too bad his award wasn’t televised, ghost has seats in the amas so they, or at least tobias. , should be there. They got the photo wrong with their seat in the amas, but the photo used was of a band called love ghost.”
In response, one fan asks: “How does it screw up so bad wtf amas,” while another furiously declares: “Wow. Just…wow. They didn’t get the best and brightest for the AMAs did they ?That’s pretty damn hard, but they did it!
“I think it’s very disrespectful that the reporters didn’t bother to find out the artist’s name (Mr Ghost!), and then get Ghost’s image so wrong, when images are such a big part of the music
“He won his category and they didn’t get anything right. Do better you dumb asses. Sorry. It just irritates me.”
One commenter even suggests a reason for the crap, suggesting: “I guess they didn’t want the masked images and I assumed these were unmasked lmao.”
Fans also took to Twitter to show their disapproval, with most bewildered and upset that Forge traveled such a long way to attend the ceremony and yet received so little recognition from the company , based on the aforementioned errors.
“Really disappointed with how Tobias Forge was treated at the AMAs. This guy flew in from Europe to call himself ‘Mr. Ghost’/’Ghost’, he didn’t have his award televised and they put up a group photo wrong. his chair. Tobias deserves the world, he’s worked hard.”
To add insult to injury, during his red carpet appearance, a photographer referred to Tobias Forge as “Mr. Ghost,” which while funny, has further irritated fans who believe he was another example of the company that didn’t care about rock. album winners.

Honestly, the disrespect for Ghost from AMAS is insane. They clearly didn’t want Ghost to win. “Mr. Ghost” to Tobias Forge?? He did not televise his performance. and to top it off, he didn’t even use the right image for the non-televised section. OF COURSE Look at my man pic.twitter.com/e8ZNh13Bt5November 21, 2022
