Before a new crop of GRAMMYs are handed out Sunday, hear from past winners about what it's like to receive the coveted honor.

Outkast's Big Boi and Andre 3000 won Album of the Year for 2003's double album, "Speakerbox/The Love Below."

BIG BOI: “[Andre 3000] and I were in L.A. with 30 members of our extended families, who also attended the awards. We had the hotel on lockdown with so many rooms on different floors. It was like a family reunion. This was a special moment because the Grammy is one of the most prestigious prizes in music. Winning Album of the Year [for OutKast’s "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below"] was the equivalent of winning a Super Bowl ring. To be the best album of all the genres is the highest honor in music and is one of the highlights of my career.”
