Flashback: Michael Jackson's first solo Grammy nominations

July 7, 2009 | 10:36 am

After receiving two losing Grammy bids during the 1970s as part of the Jackson 5, Michael Jackson competed solo for the first time at the ceremony held in January 1980.

Jackson reaped two nominations for "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" – best male R&B vocal performance and best disco recording. He won the R&B prize, but lost the latter trophy to disco's first queen, Gloria Gaynor ("I Will Survive").
