Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson Cover Aretha Franklin at 2011 Grammys
Aguilera and Hudson were joined by Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine), Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams to perform Franklin's best-known songs. The five female faces kicked off the Grammys with 'You Make Me Feel (Like A Natural Woman),' which boiled into an-Aguilera led version of 'Ain't No Way, and Hudson stole the show with Franklin's notorious hit, 'Respect.'
"We came together as a group tonight to honor the queen -- we love you, Aretha," Aguilera said as the fivesome presented the award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group. The special Grammy intro closed with a video from Aretha herself, fully dressed in white in her living room. The soul superstar is currently recovering from pancreatic cancer.
