And on seven other occasions, a video lost at the VMAs but wreaked revenge by prevailing at the Grammys:
1989 - Michael Jackson - "Leave Me Alone"
1992 - Peter Gabriel - "Digging In The Dirt"
1995 - Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson - "Scream"
1999 - Korn - "Freak On A Leash"
2001 - Fatboy Slim - "Weapon Of Choice"
2003 - Johnny Cash - "Hurt"
Among other competitors in this Grammy race: Jay-Z & Kanye West featuring Frank Ocean and the Dream's "No Church in the Wild," which is likely to win Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. However, it had only had minor rotation on MTV, VH1, BET, due to violent imagery and this might scare voters away.
