Gallery: 15 of the most controversial Grammy wins of all time (Stacker)

Since the ceremony began in 1959, then hosted at the Beverly Hilton, the Grammy Awards have been considered among the most important awards in music.  That first year rewarded the likes of iconic stars including Frank Sinatra, the Kingston Trio, Count Basie, and Ella Fitzgerald. Since then, many other outstanding artists—considered by critics and fans to be among the best of all time—have also found acclaim.  But while many Grammy wins are well deserved, the awards have had their fair share of controversies.  Stacker compiled an original list using independent research to round up some of the top Grammy flubs and how those decisions have aged ahead of the ceremony, which, since the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, was delayed for two years in a row in 2021 and 2022.  Music fans have complained that the voting system skews in favor of those with top-selling records rather than the best music, divorcing winners from the reality of what’s happening in the industry. And following an unprecedented snub for a bid at the 2021 ceremony for his critically acclaimed album “After Hours,” The Weeknd even spearheaded a boycott against the show, accusing the awards of corruption.   Some undeniably iconic artists, such as Diana Ross and Jimi Hendrix, never won awards throughout their vaunted careers. What’s more, certain winners beat out superior artists (or at least artists that fans or critics insisted were better). In a few cases, artists were nominated in categories that made no sense for their style of music.  Keep reading to discover some of the most controversial Grammy wins in history.
