Entertainment Weekly recaps how the "Best New Artist" winners did:
Winning Year: 1991
Built to Last: The honey-voiced bombshell has basically become her own brand in the 20-plus years since she first took home hardware for ''Vision of Love.'' Her career has had so many chapters, you can refer to them in one-word eras: ''Butterfly,'' ''Glitter,'' ''Mimi,'' ''#dembabies,'' ''Idol.''
Zimbio ranked The Grammy's "Best New Artist" winners and Mariah was their #1 pick!
1. Mariah Carey, 1991
Mariah Carey's big wins at the 1991 Grammys (for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Vision of Love") helped to make her critically lauded debut album an international blockbuster. She's since sold over 200 million albums, and is regarded as one of the best singers of all time.
Other nominees that year: The Black Crowes, The Kentucky Headhunters, Wilson Phillips, Lisa Stansfield
