    A young Mariah Carey attends the 1991 Grammy Awards.

    Did you know that Mariah Carey holds the record for being the youngest person ever nominated for the Grammy Awards’ four major categories?

    Carey was only twenty years of age when she was nominated for the Album of the Year (Mariah Carey), Record of the Year (“Vision of Love”), Song of the Year (“Vision of Love”) and Best New Artist at the 1991 Grammy Awards. However, she only won the Best New Artist trophy as well as another for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (“Vision of Love”).

    To date, Carey has won a total of five Grammys from thirty four nominations, thus ranking her among artists with the most unfavourable win to nomination ratios. Watch her perform “Vision of Love” at the 1991 Grammy Awards ceremony below:
