Terrill/AP A dress? Pants? In 2004, the rapper-singer-actress just couldn't make up her mind – and didn't flatter her trimmed-down figure. 03 of 14 BRITNEY SPEARS: HIT Jerzy Dabrowsky/ZUMA Though she lost to Christina Aguilera as best new artist in 2000, the pop diva reigned supreme in an elegant Randolph Duke gown and Oscar de la Renta mink stole. 04 of 14 AVRIL LAVIGNE: MISS Kevin Mazur/WireImage.com She should have stuck with her day job: In 2003, the best new artist nominee looked more like a "Sk8ter Boi" in her message-scrawled tuxedo jacket, which she helped design. 05 of 14 USHER: HIT Robert Galbraith/REUTERS/Landov The RampB singer (who scored three awards) lit up the red carpet in 2005 in a dapper white Armani ensemble, wingtip shoes and plenty of bling. 06 of 14 CHRISTINA AGUILERA: MISS Frank Foden/ZUMA "This dress weighs more than I do," the best new artist winner complained about her chain-mail dress in 2000. Sadly, the tacky frock wasn't worth the weight. 07 of 14 BEYONCé: HIT REUTERS/Robert Galbraith/Landov Bootylicious, indeed. The singer (nominated with Destiny's Child for "Lose My Breath") flaunted her curves last year in a Roberto Cavalli gown she called "simple and sexy." 08 of 14 SHERYL CROW: MISS REUTERS/Robert Galbraith/Landov In 2005, Crow (nominated for "The First Cut Is the Deepest") joked that her unflattering cutout halter dress was made from then-boyfriend Lance Armstrong's old Tour de France jerseys. 09 of 14 ALICIA KEYS & ASHANTI: HIT Robyn BECK/AFP/Getty; Mark J. Terrill/AP In 2004, Keys wore a flowing peaches-and-cream Roberto Cavalli bustier with capris, while double-nominee Ashanti worked a variation on the theme in a crisscross Cavalli gown. 10 of 14 JOHN MAYER: MISS Lester Cohen/WireImage.com Call him Sgt. Pepper: In 2005, John Mayer (who won two Grammys for his song "Daughters") played dress-up, badly, in a Beatles-inspired velvet blazer. 11 of 14 MARY J. BLIGE: MISS Gregg DeGuire/WireImage The big-voiced RampB diva (a 2004 winner for her duet with Sting, "Whenever I Say Your Name") looked more like Big Bird in her bright yellow ensemble. 12 of 14 MADONNA: HIT Kevork Djansezian/AP To introduce Sting and best new artist nominee Sean Paul in 2004, Madge opted for a subtle Versace wrap dress that proved she didn't have to shock to make a splash. 13 of 14 LIL' KIM: MISS Mark J. Terrill/AP The diminutive hip-hopper (a multiple nominee in 2004) left little to the imagination in a revealing fur-collared gown. 14 of 14 SHAKIRA: MISS Steve Granitz/WireImage "I wanted to be in gold tonight," Shakira told PEOPLE about her blinding metallic get-up in 2001. But all the gold she really needed was her trophy for best Latin pop album.
