"Beautiful," Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera crossed over into the timeless ballad category when she recorded "Beautiful." As heard in Aguilera's heartbreaking perfromance, she poured her very essence into the track, which celebrates inner beauty and self-esteem over insecurity. Artists from Chaka Khan to Kelly Clarkson have covered it live, but Xtina's rendition represents the most stripped-down interpretation of the song ever recorded.
