It’s rare to find a performer giving it up the way Mary J. Blige is giving it up here at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards in 2002. This is an example of a performer telling a story with strong intention and deep emotion. Her performance is hard to watch at a certain point – she looks as if she’s about to jump off the stage and hurt somebody. But she brings it back down at the end – giving us a full and spiritual interpretation of “No More Drama,” like only Mary can do it.
