While you let it sink in that the Baha Men (yes, of "Who Let the Dog Out?" fame) have won a Grammy, check out some artists and bands who have never won a competitive Grammy Award.
Snoop Dogg: With his 17th career nomination in 2016 for his work as featured artist on Kendrick Lamar's Album of the Year-nominated "To Pimp a Butterfly," Snoop Dogg set a new record for most Grammy nominations without a win when Taylor Swift's "1989" beat out Lamar's album for the win. He had tied Brian McKnight with 16 nominations without a win in 2014 when he lost out to Ziggy Marley for Best Reggae Album for "Reincarnated." Most of his nominations came for collaborations with everyone from Dr. Dre to Katy Perry, in a career that has lasted for more than 20 years and more than a dozen studio albums.
Brian McKnight: As noted before, the R&B singer-songwriter and musician's work has earned him 16 Grammy Awards nominations, previously setting the record for most nominations without a single win before being passed by Snoop Dogg in 2016.
Joe Satriani: The rock guitar legend has nabbed 15 Grammy nominations in his career, all but one in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category, but has never won.
Martina McBride: While the country music star sang on "Amazing Grace - A Country Salute to Gospel," which won a Grammy for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album in 1996, she has yet to win a Grammy herself in 14 career nominations.
Bjork: Although she's known more for her distinctive look and unique voice than any mainstream success, the Icelandic pop star has racked up 14 Grammy nominations in her career to this point, but has walked away empty handed every time. Bjork releases have received two additional Grammy Award nominations, both of which are credited to the respective art directors, including a win for Best Recording Package for her "Biophilia" album in 2013. Her most recent nomination came in 2016, when she lost the Best Alternative Music Album category for "Vulnicura" to the Alabama Shakes' "Sound & Color."
Katy Perry: While she hasn't been around as long as most of the artists on this list, Perry has been nominated 13 times since her 2008 pop debut without winning even once, including two nominations without a win in 2015.
Dierks Bentley: The country music singer-songwriter received his first two Grammy nominations for "Every Mile a Memory," the lead single off his 2006 album "Long Trip Alone." He lost his 13th career nomination this year, with his song with Elle King, "Different for Girls," losing in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance cateogry to Pentatonix and Dolly Parton for their rendition of Parton's hit song "Jolene."
Diana Ross: Despite 12 nominations over her career, the singer has never won a competitive Grammy. However, she has had three recordings inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
Musiq Soulchild: The soul singer-songwriter has received 12 Grammy nominations without a win since his 2000 debut album "Aijuswanaseing." He lost his 12th career nomination this year, Best R&B Performance for his song "I Do," to Solange Knowles in her very first Grammy nomination.
Spyro Gyra: The jazz fusion band received their first Grammy nomination back in 1980 for their third studio album "Catching the Sun." Since then, the band has racked up a total of 12 nominations, including four straight Best Pop Instrumental Album nods between 2007 and 2010, without earning a victory.
Busta Rhymes: The rapper has received 11 Grammy nominations, most recently two 2012 nods for his song "Look At Me Now," but has yet to win the award.
Nas: The rapper has netted 11 Grammy nominations in his career dating back to 1997, but has yet to hear his name called at the actual ceremony.
Connie Smith: The country singer received her first three Grammy nominations back in 1965, including two for her debut single "Once a Day" and another for Best New Country and Western Artist. She proceeded to earn seven more in the 1960s and '70s, with her 10th coming in 1976 for her gospel album "Connie Smith Sings Hank Williams Gospel." She then earned her 11th nomination in 2010 for "Run to You," her collaboration with Marty Stuart.
Vanessa L. Williams: Williams started off her run of 11 Grammy nominations without a win with nods for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best New Artist in 1989. Her 11th, and most recent, nomination came in 1997 in the Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album category.
Jazmine Sullivan: The R&B and soul singer-songwriter burst onto the music scene in 2009 with five Grammy nominations, including a nomination for Best New Artist and nods for her debut album "Fearless" and two of its singles "Need U Bad" and "Bust Your Windows." After notching two more nominations in 2010 and another one in 2011, she briefly walked away from music. She returned with 2015 album "Reality Show," earning three more nominations this year for a total of 11 in her career so far, but was again shut out at the 2016 ceremony.
Meshell Ndegeocello: The singer-songwriter has received 10 Grammy nominations over a career that began in 1993, but has yet to hear her name called at the ceremony.
Tanya Tucker: The country legend's first Grammy nomination came at the age of 14 for her debut single, 1973's "Delta Dawn." Nine more nominations followed through the mid-1990s for a total of 10 nominations without a victory.
Jamey Johnson: The old school country singer-songwriter has racked up nine Grammy nomination in total since his first three in 2009 but hasn't won as of yet. His most recent nomination came in 2013 for Best Country album for "Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran."
Queen: The Freddie Mercury-led band never won a Grammy, despite nominations for "Bohemian Rhapsody" in 1976 for Best Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group (it lost to Chicago's "If You Leave Me Now") and for "Another One Bites the Dust" in 1980 for Best Rock Performance (losing to Bob Seger's "Against the Wind"). The band has seen "Bohemian Rhapsody" earn a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame, along with the hits "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions," but has never even won a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Chuck Berry: The rock 'n' roll pioneer mostly got shut out because by the time the Grammys began in 1959, he was already a major established star with several hit songs, including "Maybellene," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Rock and Roll Music" and "Johnny B. Goode." While he never won a competitive Grammy, he did nab a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1984.
Janis Joplin: The bluesy singer of "Piece of My Heart" and "Me and Bobby McGee" died at the age of 27 in 1970 just as her fame was peaking. After her death, she was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Me and Bobby McGee," but lost out to Carole King's "Tapestry." She did receive a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.
The Who: The band that recorded such hits as "My Generation," "Pinball Wizard," "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" was never honored with a Grammy except for the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001.
The Doors: Jim Morrison's unique voice and charismatic personality drove the success of such songs as "Light My Fire," "Hello, I Love You" and "Touch Me," but the only Grammy The Doors ever received was the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, 36 years after Morrison's death.
Jimi Hendrix: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and guitar legend Hendrix is often named among the best, if not the best, electric guitarists of all time. But we went unrecognized by the Grammys during his career, which was cut short at the age of 27 in 1970. He was later awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award more than 20 years after his death.
Bob Marley: The legendary reggae singer, whose best-known hits included "I Shot the Sheriff," "No Woman, No Cry," "Get Up Stand Up," "Redemption Song" and "One Love," was another artist who later received a Lifetime Achievement Award after his death, but was never awarded with a Grammy during his career.
Run-D.M.C.: Despite a career that spanned more than 20 years and being recognized as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture, rappers Run-D.M.C. was completely shut out by the Grammys. The group actually became the first hip hop group ever to receive a Grammy nomination, for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1987 for "Raising Hell," losing out to Prince and The Revolution for "Kiss," and earned two more nominations, but never won.
Tupac Shakur: Although the rapper died at the age of 25 in 1996, he still earned six Grammy nominations in his short career, losing every single one.
The Kinks: The band responsible for such top-10 hit songs as "You Really Got Me," "Tired of Waiting for You," "All Day and All of the Night" and "Lola," not only never won a Grammy, it has yet to receive the consolation prize of a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Two years after three Lynyrd Skynyrd band members, including lead singer Ronnie Van Zant, died in a 1977 plane crash, the Recording Academy added rock categories. As a result, the Grammys missed out on such hits as "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama," which had little chance going against pop music.
The Grateful Dead: The legendary jam band, which never really found chart success apart from the 1987 top-10 hit "Touch of Grey," still managed to attract a huge dedicated following while serving as a huge influence in a number of genres. While the Grateful Dead's 1970 album "Workingman's Dead" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, they never received a Grammy nomination. However, they were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007, more than a decade after Jerry Garcia's death.
Rush: Like The Grateful Dead, the Canadian rock band Rush has a dedicated following but has not yet felt the love from the Grammys. Despite six nominations for Best Rock Instrumental Performance dating back to 1981, they've yet to win a Grammy Award, losing out to the likes of The Police, Pink Floyd, Brian Wilson and Bruce Springsteen.
