POTW Jan. 29: Kanye West, Madonna, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift
Lauryn Hill shocks everyone by jumping onstage at the Jan. 29 date of the Raggamuffin Festival in Sydney, Australia.

At the 41st Grammy Awards, Lauryn Hill set a new record for female artists, winning five Grammy Awards out of the ten she was nominated for her 1998 album, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

It was the first time a rap artist had ever won in the major Grammy categories, including the Album of the Year award, making "Miseducation" the first hip-hop album to ever receive that award.

Hill, formerly from The Fugees, also won best new artist, female R&B vocal performance for the track "Doo Wop," R&B song for the same record and R&B album.

In 2002, Alicia Keys tied with Lauryn Hill when she won five Grammys for her chart-topping debut album "Songs in a Minor."
