Grammy Awards 2015 is coming near. With the biggest music awards night inching closer, we would like to pay a tribute to the highest Grammy award winners of all time.

If we take a look at the recent past, Kanye West, Jay Z, Beyonce and Adele first comes to our mind. Although they are Grammy winners and have a good count of the trophy in their pocket.

However, the record for the most Grammy Awards won in a lifetime is held by Sir Georg Solti, a Hungarian-British conductor who conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for twenty-two years. He has won a total of 31 Grammy Awards out of 74 nominations.

Giving close competition are Quincy Jones and Alison Krauss with 27 wins each. Coming to the creators in the history of Grammys, we have U2, Michael Jackson and many more. With a total of 22 Grammy Award, U2 has received the most awards of any group in history.

Which male singer holds the record for the most Grammys awarded in a single night? Its King of Pop, Michael Jackson and Latin rock band, Santana who have tied up with 8 wins (MJ won eight in 1984 and Santana in 2000).

Coming to the female voice, diva Beyonce was the single female artist with 6 wins in one night. However, Adele broke her Grammy record and tied up with 6 wins in 2012.

Talking about the highest number of Grammy award win by a solo artist, music legend Stevie Wonder is leading the list with 22 awards. Kanye West is giving a tough competition with 21 wins already. This year, he has been nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "Bound 2". If he wins the Grammy then he will be landing in the list with Stevie Wonder.
