MTV's Unplugged features a performance by Lauryn Hill four years after her Grammy Award-winning debut. Do you remember back in the day when MTV (Music Television) actually had music as part of their programming?
Memories are hazy, for sure, and since MTV has pretty much barred music from their schedule, they've at least claimed the mantle as the pioneers of "reality" TV.
I always found one of MTV's greatest achievements to be their "Unplugged" shows, where they took a top band, took away their electric instruments, and had them run through their songlist sans electricity. Memorable performances by Nirvana, R.E.M., and Alice In Chains are a meager sampling of what MTV has brought to television audiences.
Back in 1998, Lauryn Hill debuted her album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," which sold 12 million copies and won five Grammy Awards, after which she disappeared to wherever it is that Grammy winners go.
Lauryn's returned with a new set of songs that MTV now features in an Unplugged show.
