Lauryn Hill (1998)
The Fugees' Lauryn Hill won five Grammys for her solo debut, including Album of the Year. (Just like Christopher Cross in 1980.) So absolutely nobody was surprised when L-Boogie won BNA. The surprise came later, when she dropped off the face of the earth. Maybe the whole "bringing her Bible up to the podium so she could read a psalm to the crowd" thing should have been a warning sign.
