The Dixie Chicks were the big winners at Sunday's Grammy Awards, taking home no less than five hunks of gold, including kudos for record, song and country album of the year. Comeback kid Mary J. Blige and The Red Hot Chili Peppers were the evening's second-most honored, walking away with three wins each. Among the night's spectacles were a blink-and-you-missed-it reunion for The Police (remembering that saucy "Roxanne"), Justin Timberlake dueting with (oh-so-nervous) "My Grammy Moment" winner Robyn Troup, and a powerhouse vocal tribute to James Brown by Christina Aguilera.
