Milli Vanilli

So, it's 4:30 in the morning, and I wake up and I'm wide awake and all I can think about is, "who was Milli Vanilli, and what were they known for?" So, i went looking for them today and here's what I found. Here's what Wikipedia says about them:
Milli Vanilli were a pop and dance music project formed by Frank Farian in Germany in 1988, fronted by Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus. The group's debut album achieved high sales internationally which earned them a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1990. The act sold over 30 million singles[citation needed], 14 million albums[citation needed] and became one of the most popular pop acts in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, their success turned to infamy when their Grammy was revoked after it was revealed that the actual vocals on the record were not the voices of Morvan and Pilatus. In 1998, ten years after Milli Vanilli's debut, Pilatus was found dead in a Frankfurt hotel of an apparent drug overdose.
They're not my cup of tea, but here they are anyway. At least I went back to sleep.
