She was nominated alongside Britney Spears, Kid Rock, and Macy Gray. At 19 years old, Aguilera became the second youngest person to win a Grammy, as well as the youngest of Latin descent to do so. At the time of her nomination, Aguilera only had two singles released for consideration, her number-one singles “Genie in a Bottle” and “What A Girl Wants” (her debut album released in 1999 missed the cut off point to be nominated).
