Grammy Awards for 1983

By Patrick Mondout

The big winner at the 26th annual Grammy Awards was, not surprisingly, Michael Jackson. Riding high on the strength of the biggest-selling album of all-time, Jackson picked up Rock Male, Pop Male, R&B Male, Album, and Record of the Year honors. Perhaps as a result of splitting the vote between two of his songs, Michael didn't take home Song of the Year. That honor went to Sting for Every Breath You Take.

Note: All nominees are listed and denotes the Grammy winner(s).
