1990: Fabrice Morvan and Rob Pilatus of the pop duo Milli Vanilli are stripped of their Grammy for Best New Artist a week after their producer, Frank Farian, publicly admitted that they never sang a note on their debut "Milli Vanilli" album and that they lip-synch when they perform live. Arista Records then dropped the act from its roster and deleted their album and its masters from their catalog, taking "Girl You Know It's True" out of print. Morvan (left) and Pilatus (right) are seen here with National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences President C. Michael Green at the rehearsal for the 1990 Grammys.
