In tribute to the Grammy Awards 50th anniversary, CBS.com and Grammy.com asked viewers to vote on their favorite performances at the Grammy's of All Time; It's A Man's World was voted 3rd best Grammy performance ever.
"The show-stealer: Christina Aguilera laying waste to James Brown's "It's a Man's World," at the end of a medley that also included Smokey Robinson singing "Tracks of My Tears" AND Lionel Richie singing "Hello." A vision in white, spilling out of her vest, pouring every last drop of oxygen she had into this tribute to the late Godfather, Aguilera was so powerful that it didn't matter if she'd ever heard of James Brown before. There was a lot of earnest tribute made to Brown all night, but Christina was better than earnest. She was great".
"Most of the performances were surprisingly strong, the best of which was Christina Aguilera's take on James Brown's "It's a Man's World" Pouring every ounce of emotion she had into the mic, Aguilera's time on the stage might just go down in Grammy history as one of the best ever".
