"Sound of Silence" performed by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel

  The show opened with the song "Sound of Silence" performed by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. A wonderfully played song, and all acoustic at that! Both musicians received a Lifetime Achievement Award this year due to their excellence over many decades. Other recipients of the 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award included Etta James, Johnny Mathis, Glenn Miller, Tito Puente. Engineer, producer and folk music archivist Alan Lomax and the New York Philharmonic were honored with Trustees Awards.

 

No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani

After a commercial break, the band No Doubt with lead singer Gwen Stefani (pictured above) performed a medley of two their popular songs. After their performance, No Doubt won the Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal for their song "Hey Baby". Nora Jones (pictured below) was the next artist with her song "Don't Know Why".

Another all acoustic performance with James on guitar and the assistance of none other than YoYo Ma on cello! Next up on stage to receive an award was sixteen year old John Mayer who won the Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy for "Your Body Is A Wonderland". Eminem took the stage for winning Best Rap Album for The Eminem Show.

 

Dixie Chicks

Crossover band (country, rock, folk, contemporary, etc.) Dixie Chicks consisting of Martie Seidel, Natalie Maines, and Emily Robison played their song "Landslide". This leads right up to their winning the Best Country Album for Home that naturally includes the song "Landslide".
