Watch Shawn Colvin Win Song Of The Year (And Get Interrupted) At The 40th GRAMMY Awards | GRAMMY Rewind
In an unexpected twist, Colvin's Song Of The Year acceptance got a Wu-Tang remix as Ol' Dirty Bastard slid in with some unexpected self-promotion
Back in 1998, Shawn Colvin's radio behemoth "Sunny Came Home" won two GRAMMYs: Song Of The Year and Record Of The Year. When she walked onstage to accept the award at the 40th GRAMMY Awards, alongside her co-writer John Leventhal, she was in for a bit of a surprise.
In an unexpected twist, Colvin's Song Of The Year acceptance got a Wu-Tang remix as Ol' Dirty Bastard slid in with some unexpected self-promotion ("Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best").
Watch the moment play out in our latest edition of GRAMMY Rewind above.

Will Smith at the 1999 GRAMMYs
GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Will Smith Dedicate His 1999 Best Rap Solo Performance GRAMMY To His Son
In his acceptance speech, he offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith"
Today, Sept. 25, we celebrate the birthday of the coolest dad—who else? Will Smith! For the latest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, we revisit the Fresh Prince's 1999 GRAMMY win for Best Rap Solo Performance for "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It."
In the below video, watch rappers Missy Elliott—donning white leather—and Foxy Brown present the GRAMMY to a stoked Smith, who also opted for an all-leather look. In his acceptance speech, he offers thanks to his family and "the jiggiest wife in the world, Jada Pinkett Smith." He dedicates the award to his eldest son, Trey Smith, joking that Trey's teacher said he (then just six years old) could improve his rhyming skills.
The classic '90s track is from his 1997 debut studio album, Big Willie Style, which also features "Miami" and 1998 GRAMMY winner "Men In Black," from the film of the same name. The "Está Rico" rapper has won four GRAMMYs to date, earning his first back in 1989 GRAMMYs for "Parents Just Don't Understand," when he was 20 years old.

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Santana & Rob Thomas Self-Assuredly Win Record Of The Year For "Smooth" In 2000
In the newest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, watch Santana and Rob Thomas win Record Of The Year at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards for "Smooth," the unlikely smash-hit pairing of the classic rock legend and Matchbox Twenty leader
By all accounts, Santana's and Rob Thomas' 1999 megahit "Smooth" almost didn't happen. In its embryonic stages, Carlos Santana was skeptical of the tune; the AM-radio effect on Thomas's voice alone engendered its own smattering of arguments.
But in a quintessential lesson about why you should never, ever give up, "Smooth" became the second-biggest single of all time, second only to Chubby Checker's "The Twist." It also led to the 2000 GRAMMY Awards, where the unlikely pair won the GRAMMY for Record Of The Year.
In the newest episode of GRAMMY Rewind, revisit the moment 21 years ago when an unlikely gambit paid off in dividends, putting a feather in the cap of Matchbox Twenty's leader and landing a classic rocker back on the airwaves.

GRAMMY Rewind: Watch Celine Dion Win Record Of The Year For "My Heart Will Go On"
Two decades before Billie Eilish's 2020 win, Celine Dion stepped onto the GRAMMY stage to take home Record Of The Year for her smash hit "My Heart Will Go On"
Long before Billie Eilish's 2020 Record Of The Year win, French-Canadian pop sensation Celine Dion stepped onto the GRAMMY stage to take home Record Of The Year for her smash hit "My Heart Will Go On."
It was 1999: two years after Dion's ballad was prominently featured in James Cameron's star-crossed epic "Titanic," a song placement that forever impacted the way music was used in film. The Canadian vocal powerhouse was up against the Goo Goo Dolls ("Iris"), Monica and Brandy ("The Boy Is Mine"), Madonna ("Ray Of Light") and Shania Twain ("You're Still The One").
During her acceptance speech, it was only fitting that Dion, who took home the golden gramophone along with Walter Afanasieff, Simon Franglen and James Horner, thank the person who made her own heart, well, go on.
Watch the GRAMMY Rewind video above to hear Dion's speech, which thanked her late husband and manager, René Angélil.
