Pop Culture: Christina Aguilera Grammys

Christina Aguilera Does James Brown at the Grammy Awards
It may be a man’s world… But during the 2007 Grammy Awards, Christina Aguilera proved she didn’t need a man to shine brighter than the sun. Performing the Godfather of Soul’s song "It's a Man's Man's Man's World," Aguilera wowed viewers with her polished look, superstar presence and that voice. "Everyone knows Aguilera's got pipes — but probably not even her most devoted fans could've imagined her channeling James Brown with the magnetic fervor she displayed tonight," raved Entertainment Weekly. "Crouched on the floor, clutching the mic stand, and belting full-throttle from beginning to end, Xtina didn't so much sing 'It's a Man's Man's Man's World' as she did unleash it on her mesmerized audience.” To this day, it remains one of the greatest Grammy performances of all time!
