Crooners Babyface, Usher and John Legend have all won Grammys for the R&B genre. However, after four nominations, Eric Benet has yet to join this group of winners. Since 1996, he's crafted seven albums and paved the way for many burgeoning singers.

Although we were hoping he and his duet partner, Tamia (who's also on this list) would take home gramophones for their 2000 Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group nod for their song, 'Spend My Life With You,' he went home empty-handed.
