christina aguilera getty aretha franklin Grammys 2011: Did Christina Aguilera redeem herself in the Aretha Franklin tribute?Christina Aguilera may have embarrassed herself a bit during the Super Bowl “Star Mangled Banner” incident, but we think she more than redeemed herself during the Aretha Franklin tribute at the Grammys.

Not only did she remember all the words (score!), she blew the vocals out the box. Jennifer Hudson was right up there in terms of divaness breaking it down, but we think Christina really stole the tribute.

What did you think? Is Xtina back in everybody’s good graces after paying such wonderful tribute to the Queen of Soul? We’ll post video as soon as we have it so if you missed it, you can judge for yourself.

Following the tribute, Aretha herself gave a lovely message from her home in Detroit and says that she will be there next year in person. Get well soon, Aretha!
