Mariah Carey at The Grammy Awards Alicia Keys at The Grammy Awards Christina Aguilera at The Grammy Awards Beyonce at The Grammy Awards

A Grammy Award (originally called Gramophone Award) — or Grammy — is an accolade by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry. The annual awards ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely viewed televised ceremony. It is the music equivalent to the Emmy Awards for television, and the Academy Awards for film.

The awards were established in 1958.

The actual trophy is produced by Billings Artworks in Ridgway, Colorado. The trophies are made and assembled by hand. In 1990, the original Grammy design was revamped, changing the traditional soft lead for a stronger alloy less prone to damage, and making the trophy bigger and grander. The Grammy is assembled in pieces and finally finished off in gold plating. The actual trophies, with the recipient's name engraved, are not available until after the award announcements, so a series of "stunt" trophies are re-used each year for the broadcast.

Georg Solti 31 wins, Quincy Jones 27 wins, Alison Krauss 27 wins, U2 22 wins, Chicago Symphony Orchestra 60 wins
