PHOTOS: Grammy’s Worst Calls

Look, we all make mistakes. But Grammy voters have blown so many calls over the years that the Recording Academy really ought to start distributing Miracle Ear hearing aids when it sends nominees’ albums to voters. We feel that the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences should just rename the awards ceremony “The Grammys: Where Hindsight Is 20/20”. Think we’re overreacting? Perhaps you’ve forgotten the time Metallica lost Best Heavy Metal Performance to Jethro Tull (yes, it really happened) or when Boyz II Men got passed over for Best New Artist. And who can forget the whole Milli Vanilli debacle? Not us. Take a look through the Grammys’ Biggest Goofs gallery and revisit the travesties that time forgot.
