The Grammys' Biggest Hip-Hop Mistakes: Snubs, Errors, and Embarrassments

The Fugees lose to Celine Dion for Album of the Year

Celine Dion has had 21 Grammy nominations and 5 wins, and in 1997, she took Album of the Year for Falling into You. It was only her fourth English-language album-but her 21st overall. Yes, 21. Meanwhile, The Fugees disbanded in 1997 but first, won the Best Rap Album for The Score and "Killing Me Softly" for Best R&B Vocal Performance. But lost to Dion for Album of the Year. Couldn't she have just let them win? It was their second and last album, ever. Plus we can name nearly every song on The Score and no, "My Heart Will Go On" wasn't on Falling Into You. Nice try.
