Best and Worst: Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim, Mya, Patti LaBelle - 'Lady Marmalade' (2002)
"Lady Marmalade" is Patti LaBelle’s song — technically the work of her former girl-group Labelle — so naturally she stole the show in a new rendition of it performed at the 2002 Grammys. The song’s lead Christina Aguilera, plus Pink, Lil' Kim, Mya and surprise guest Missy Elliott looked amazing in their “Moulin Rouge”-inspired outfits, but they didn’t all sound as good as LaBelle. Xtina’s vocals seemed strained, Pink mumbled some of her verses and Lil' Kim appeared out of breath. Still, this was an unforgettable spectacle of strong women.
