Did You Miss It? Gladys Knight & Dionne Warwick Laugh Off Announcer Mixing Them Up at US Open

Published: Saturday 3rd Sep 2022 by Rashad

As two of the most important Black artists to ever grace recorded music, Dionne Warwick (one of the best-selling female acts of all time) and Gladys Knight (the crowned ‘Empress of Soul’) not only boast six decades of impact respectively but they also own two of the most recognized names, voices, and faces in their field.

Despite the aforementioned, earlier this week – during one of Serena Williams‘ farewell tennis matches at the US Open – Twitter went up in flames when analyst/announcer Chanda Rubin misidentified Warwick as Knight (who were both in attendance at the star-studded showing).

Yet while the negative criticism poured in heavily for Rubin, Dionne and Gladys seemed to be the least offended by the mixup.

Look inside to see how they responded.


As seen in the video above, Chanda called out Gladys’ name while Dionne was showing on the screen.  However, according to the commentator, she was referring to who she was seeing in the stands, not the monitor.

“Too bad I was initially looking at the court (where Auntie Gladys was in the stands) and not our program monitor that showed Ms. Dionne…” Rubin posted on Twitter following the match. “Mistake was immediately corrected.” 

Either way, the music legends laughed off the misidentification.  Look below to see their pleasant Twitter comments.

    Glad they laughed it off. The older singers are known to be raging divas. Dionne is hilarious on Twitter. The fact that these two beauties are still here and still performing for us is a blessing. These ladies are LEGENDS and no amount of mean trolling will change that!
