Grammys Awards poll: Did Christina Aguilera bomb again – or redeem herself?
Posters in The Envelope's message boards have mixed, strong opinions about how Christina Aguilera performed on the Grammy Awards telecast. Just days after she botched crooning the national anthem at the Super Bowl, Aguilera teamed up with Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Florence Welch and Yolanda Adams to pay tribute to "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin.
At the conclusion, the singers got a standing ovation. Or maybe the huzzahs were an outpouring of love for Franklin?
In our forums, a poster named laceycomplained, "Way too much screaming and riffing from Aguilera for my tastes, though I know Aretha herself does it too." musicfan2003griped, "Can't she just sing a song the way it's supposed to be sung without adding her 'vocal touch' to it? Christina is getting ridiculous."
But Tara Laudercheered, "Xtina's back!!! What super bowl incident?" DJWolff agreed: "Christina was marvelous!" Read more in our forum's official Grammy thread.
