Mp3bullet.ng presents Popular Artists who have surprisingly never won a Grammy.
Some of the most popular artists of all time have never won Grammy Awards.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards was held on Sunday, the 3rd of April and it honoured some of the year’s best recordings and artists with a night full of glitz and glamour.
While there were some noticeable snubs in the list of Grammy Winners for 2022, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing for those artists. Many of the most well-known musicians in history have never won the award.

From Nicki Minaj to Snoop Dogg, here are some iconic artists that have never taken home the golden gramophone:
In the five years between 2010 and 2015, Nicki Minaj was nominated for ten Grammy Awards. In 2011, the rapper was beaten by Bon Iver for best new artist, while in 2015, she was beaten by Kendrick Lamar in all three of her nominated categories.
Calvin Broadus, better known as Snoop Dogg, has been nominated for 19 Grammy Awards, the first of which he received in 1993, but has never won. According to reports, he presently holds the record for the most Grammy Award nominations without ever winning one.
Since 2012, Sia has received nine Grammy nominations, but the singer-songwriter, record producer, and music video director has yet to win.
Lin-Manuel Miranda beat her to the award for best song written for visual media in 2017.
Sia was even nominated for Record of the Year in 2015 for “Chandelier,” but lost to Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.”
Tupac Shakur had six Grammy nominations, including one after his death. In 1995, he was nominated for the first time but lost to Coolio and Naughty by Nature, and he was nominated again after his death but lost this time to Eminem.
Trevor Smith Jr., aka Busta Rhymes, has been nominated for 12 Grammy Awards since 1996 but has yet to win. In 2011, he received two nominations for best rap performance and best rap song.
In both categories, he was defeated by Kanye West.
The Notorious B.I.G
Just Like Tupac, the Notorious B.I.G was a popular rapper when he was alive and an iconic rap figure after his death, however, his many hit records don’t count for anything as far as Grammy is concerned.
B.I.G has been nominated four times but hasn’t won any.
She’s been nominated 13 times over the last 10 years, but current “American Idol” judge, Katy Perry, still doesn’t have a Grammy award to adorn her mantle.
Katy was even nominated for Album of the Year for Teenage Dream but lost out to The Suburbs by Arcade Fire.
