With her performance at this evening’s 53rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony on the horizon, what better way is there to build buzz for the show than with a From The Vault selection of one of Christina Aguilera’s most memorable moments? If it’s excitement you want then you’ll feel it with ‘Ain’t Not Other Man’.
This rendition of the song is taken from Aguilera’s ‘Back to Basics: Live and Down Under’ showcasing the Australian leg of her ‘Back To Basics’ tour. The studio version of the track was released the 1st single from her platinum-certified ‘Back To Basics’ LP 2006 and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
What was impressive about this performance was the fact that Aguilera was belting yet easily keeping up with the choreography. A talent like hers is incredibly rare and although many may argue that she has since passed her prime, it would be difficult to find a comparable act in the younger crop of today’s performers.
Here is hoping that Aguilera can deliver such an effortless vocal showing at this evening’s Grammy Awards. With Jennifer Hudson and Yolanda Adams sharing the same stage, she has to bring her best if she wishes to stand out.
Sidebar: Aguilera will be singing Aretha Franklin’s ‘Ain’t No Way’ and this song is called ‘Ain’t No Other Man’. Coincidence?
