MusiCares Person of the Year


  • Both Mariah Carey and Alanis Morissette received six nominations each, but although first-time nominee Alanis won four out her six nominations, Mariah, considered by many to be at the peak of her career and also having received the highest number of simultaneous nominations in her career up to that point, was completely shut out. Alanis Morissette was 21 years old at the time making her the youngest artist to win Album of the Year. She held this record until 2010 when Taylor Swift at 20 became the youngest artist to win the award.
  • KISS with Tupac Shakur made their appearance to present the Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal award, this was Kiss's first public appearance reunited with the original band members.
  • It was at this Grammys show that group TLC announced that they were bankrupt.
