Award winners

The award for Grammy Award for Best New Artist was originally awarded to Milli Vanilli, but on 20 November 1990, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences revoked Milli Vanilli's Grammy[3][4][5] after Milli Vanilli members Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan and producer Frank Farian admitted the duo did not sing at all on their album, Girl You Know It's True.[6] As of 2019, this is the only time a Grammy has been revoked.
