2000 VH-1 Men Strike Back
Sting, Backstreet Boys, Tom Jones, D'Angelo, Enrique Iglesias, Christina Aguilera and Sisqo take the stage for an unprecedented superstar event when VH1's "Men Strike Back," the first-ever male dominated concert. Guest presenters include Jenna Elfman, Matthew McConaughey, Kevin Bacon, Dylan McDermott, Kyra Sedgwick and Susan Sarandon.
Taped at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, VH1's "Men Strike Back" includes the hits fans have come to expect from these artists, as well as unexpected duets:
-- Sting gives a nod to his Police days with a solo version of "Roxanne," and "Don't Stand So Close to Me" for which he is joined by the Backstreet Boys.
-- Enrique Iglesias sings his hits "Be With You" and "Bailamos," then is joined by Tom Jones for a hot version of Bruce Springsteen's "Fire."
-- D'Angelo keeps up the heat with "Send It On" and his duet with Tom Jones: a rafter-raising cover of James Brown's "Sex Machine."
-- Tom Jones keeps the house on its feet with his hit "It's Not Unusual" and his cover of Lenny Kravitz's rocker, "Are You Gonna Go My Way."
-- Sisqo wows the audience with his "Thong Song" -- complete with 20 dancers.
-- Christina Aguilera adds her feminine ways to the all-male line up with a medley of "I Turn To You/What A Girl Wants," plus "At Last."
-- Backstreet Boys makes the girls scream with "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," "I Want it That Way," joined by Sting and "The One."
-- Then the entire line-up takes the stage to close the show with Sting's "Every Breath You Take."
