Janis Joplin

The bluesy singer of "Piece of My Heart" and "Me and Bobby McGee" died at the age of 27 in 1970 just as her fame was peaking. After her death, she was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Me and Bobby McGee," but lost out to Carole King's "Tapestry." She did receive a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.
