Alicia Keys (before she was joined by Jamie Foxx), what a powerful performer.
Green Day kicked ass, like any good punk band should.
Kanye West was great but it was the women (and Green Day) who really set things on fire.
Melissa Etheridge was incredible, a great rock singer, she nailed it.
Bonnie Raitt and Billy Preston, SOUL. Her soul filled slide and voice matched with Billy's church organ...CHILLS!
