13. Robert Plant & Allison Krauss Trump Lil’Wayne & Young Money

Let’s start by establishing the following: as the lead singer of Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant is in rarefied air. His voice is credited as one of the pillars upon which heavy metal was founded, and in the rock pantheon, he is revered as all but a God. With that said: his duet album with Allison Krauss was, especially in hindsight, a schlocky mess. Yet, somehow, it was nominated for Album of the Year…the same year that Lil’Wayne’s Tha Carter 3 was up for the same award. (As a refresher: Tha Carter 3 had “A Milli,” “Lollipop,” “Mrs. Officer,” and “You Ain’t Got Nothin’.”) Do we even need to tell you which album took home the award?
