Bruce Springsteen
The 37th annual Grammy Awards got off to a rousing start with Bruce Springsteen kicking his way through "Streets of Philadelphia." Before the night was over, the Boss proved himself to be, well, the boss, leaving the stage with Best Male Vocal Performance, Song of the Year, Best Rock Song and Best Song Written for a Motion Picture or Television, all for the track he penned for the Tom Hanks/Denzel Washington film, "Philadelphia."

While Springsteen may have hoarded the most individual awards, the night belonged to Sheryl Crow, who walked away with Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Performance and Record of the Year for her hit "All I Wanna Do."

   
"I want to thank my family for doing the wave during my performance," the singer said.

While the members of Soundgarden certainly seemed pleased to have won two Grammys (Best Metal Performance and Best Hard Rock Performance), they weren't as thrilled about the lack of free stuff.

"I thought it would be free beer and free food, so I feel disappointed," guitarist Kim Thayil said.

"Yeah, we haven't gotten anything for free yet except for the little statuette things," frontman Chris Cornell said. "And we didn't have to pay for the tickets — I don't think."

There were, as always, plenty of Grammys doled out to old-school favorites, with Tony Bennett taking two awards, including Album of the Year. The Rolling Stones took Best Rock Album and Best Music Video and Aerosmith got Best Rock Duo/Group.

It was all about the ladies in the rap categories, with Queen Latifah winning Best Rap Solo Performance for "U.N.I.T.Y." and Salt-N-Pepa taking the Best Group Rap Performance award for "None of Your Business," an award they appreciated after 10 years in the rap game.

"A lot of people go and they're out for a year or two and they win all the awards and then you never hear from them again," Cheryl "Salt" James said. "So we do appreciate it, 'cause it's been so long."

Winning a Grammy for the Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his acoustic hit "When Can I See You," Babyface also won best R&B Song for "I'll Make Love to You," the song he wrote for Boyz II Men, who surprised no one except perhaps themselves when they won Best R&B Album and Performance.

"We just don't expect to win, so when we do win it's like, 'Ahh!' " Boyz II Men's Wanya Morris said.

"Always a rush, all the time," Nate Morris added.
