List Rules Vote up the worst Grammy winners and vote down the artists who deserve their Grammys

Unlike the best artists who never won a Grammy, these are the worst artists to win a Grammy Award. Featuring rappers, DJs, bands, groups, and singers who should not have won a Grammy, this list of the worst Grammy winners makes award shows seem more like a popularity contest than a ceremony for music excellence. Which artists did not deserve to win a Grammy?

Although The Chainsmokers's album Memories...Do Not Open is considered as one of the worst albums of 2017, the electronic music duo won their first Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording for their hit single "Don't Let Me Down." Other so-called bad artists with Grammys include Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Meghan Trainor, and Lorde.

Vote up the worst artists to ever win a Grammy Award. Feel free to add any other undeserving Grammy winners missing from the list.
