Vintage Video: Grammy Award Record of the Year Performances From the Doobie Brothers, Tina Turner, Phil Collins

This Monday night is the 58th annual Grammy Awards and, while D'Angelo & the Vanguard, Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd will be battling for Record of the Year, we thought we would go back and look at performances from past year that went on to win the Record of the Year award during that night's broadcast.

The Doobie Brothers took the Record of the Year at the 22nd Annual Grammy Awards on February 27, 1980, beating out Earth, Wind & Fire (After the Love Has Gone), Gloria Gaynor (I Will Survive), Kenny Rogers (The Gambler) and Barbra Streisand & Neil Diamond (You Don't Bring Me Flowers).

Five years later, in 1985, Tina Turner made her huge comeback by taking Record of the Year for What's Love Got to Do With It. She won over Chicago (Hard Habit to Break), Cyndi Lauper (Girls Just Want to Have Fun), Huey Lewis & the News (The Heart of Rock and Roll) and Bruce Springsteen (Dancing in the Dark).

In 1991, Phil Collins took the Grammy stage with David Crosby to perform his Record of the Year Winner, Another Day in Paradise. Collins beat Mariah Carey (Vision of Love), MC Hammer (U Can't Touch That), Bette Midler (From a Distance) and Sinead O'Connor (Nothing Compares 2 You)
