STARS WHO HAVE NEVER WON A GRAMMY!

February 11, 2017

The Grammys are this Sunday, February 12th and we are pumped! We’ve got our eyes set on the Prince and George Michael tribute, A Tribe Called Quest’s performance and of course, Beyonce’s pregnant performance!

While it is easy to assume every major singer or band has won a Grammy, there are a few that haven’t that will definitely surprise you.

Katy Perry has been nominated 13 times with no wins. This is especially weird considering she has had nine #1 hits in her career and was the first female to have five of those be from the same album, Teenage Dream. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride!

Bob Marley also never won a Grammy. He did win a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001, but sadly, Bob Marley had been dead since 1981. The Grammys, however, did not have a reggae category when he was alive.

 

Other classics that have been snubbed include Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who, Guns n Roses, and Diana Ross.

Hip-hop artists have especially been played dirty. Nicki Minaj, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, DMX, Run DMC, A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie, Tupac, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg all have yet to bring home the Grammy!

The Grammys did not even have a rap album category until 1996, and since then Eminem has taken home six Best Rap Album Awards and Kanye West has taken home four. That means Eminem and Kanye have won 50% of all Best Rap Album Grammys! If we had four, we might skip the Grammys too, Kanye.
