The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance is the latest in a series of awards recognizing superior vocal performance by a female in the pop category, the first of which was presented in 1959. The award goes to the artist. The awards have had quite a convoluted history, particularly during the early Grammy years, having seen several name changes:
- 1959-1960: Best Vocal Performance, Female
- 1961: Best Vocal Performance Single Record or Track, Female and Best Vocal Performance Album, Female
- 1962-1963: Best Solo Vocal Performance, Female
- 1964-1968: Best Vocal Performance, Female
- 1966: Best Contemporary (R&R) Vocal Performance - Female
- 1967: Grammy Award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Solo Vocal Performance - Male or Female
(the award went to Paul McCartney for Eleanor Rigby)
- 1968: Best Contemporary Female Solo Vocal Performance
- 1959-1960: Best Vocal Performance, Female

DMX does this hilarious prayer. He is definitely amped! lol
There's some horrible singing on the chorus. The Game kicks an ill-advised double time flow.
State Of Emergency (Feat. Ice Cube)
This is a little better. I could really do without the synths though.
Bulletproof Diaries (Feat. Raekwon)
This is alright. The beat is a little too ominous for it's own good.
My Life (feat. Lil Wayne)
Wayne sings the exact same hook he sung on an old Birdman track that came out last year. I dig the piano loop... and Game didn't embarrass himself.
Who told Game that it would be a good idea to rap over "She Works Hard for the Money?" This crap is lame.
Cali Sunshine (Feat. Bilal)
What an annoying song. Here's how the hook goes... "California Sunshine / In the summertime / California Sunshine / In the summertime". How long did it take for Bilal to come up with this?
Ya Heard (feat. Ludacris)
22. Jun. 2008, 22:13 von iamtheothersI was helping my mom clean out her garage today and found a box full of VHS and mix tapes. One of them was a tape I consistently refer to as "the best mix tape ever." This is clearly not an objective measure, but I still love listening to it, and it really was perfect for the moment in time my friend Clare made it. It's called "Elizabeth is the big one eight," which makes its approximate date of creation April 19, 2001. Which you can probably tell from a lot of the songs. I totally forgot about that Lucy Nation song and how I used to be OBSESSED with it. That was always the song I timed to end as I was pulling into the driveway.
Side A: H.S. Angst
Black and White
Wide Open Spaces
Never Is Enough
Just the Two of Us
She Works Hard for the Money
Silent All These Years
Side B: College Angst

16. Mai. 2007, 3:11 von WhereImGoingSo here we go...final three, and three songs a piece. Why waste any time...
Wishing On a Star - Besides the arrangement being overpowering, Jordin seemed really out of breath at points in the song, and it seemed forced. They really should have stayed with the original arrangement.
She Works Hard for the Money - So they announce the choice, and I'm thinking it's inspired. And then she starts singing, and her vocals aren't there again. She finished strong, but anohter mediocre performance.
I (Who Have Nothing) - Her best vocal of the night, but she went back for an earlier performance. Good choice on her part, but she loses just a half point or so for unoriginality.
Roxanne - Give Paula props for picking a cool song, give Blake props for playing up the heartthrob angle, and it's still a competition.
This Love - The producers are more on-point tonight with their choices than the judges were, and Blake knocks it out of the park. …
