Christina Aguilera Recalls Singing "Beautiful": "GRAMMYs Greatest Stories"
Christina Aguilera has made six trips to the GRAMMY stage as a featured performer. Over the years, she's shared the spotlight with GRAMMY winners such as Herbie Hancock, Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott, and Pink. She even helped pay tribute to the legendary Aretha Franklin in a stunning medley with Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, Yolanda Adams, and Martina McBride.
Integral to the success of the performance was Aguilera's posture and presentation, which she reveals was a difficult pose to hold while singing, but ultimately a challenge she overcame.
"Ken Ehrlich suggested I get down on my knees, and sing the song in sort of a kneeling position," Aguilera reveals. "I think it added to the vulnerability I was trying to pull off in the performance."
Watch Aguilera and other artists discuss the most memorable performances in GRAMMY history on the TV special "GRAMMYs Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special," airing Friday, Nov. 24 from 9–11 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
