Shania Twain made a grand entrance on a motorcycle at the 2002 CMA Awards, cementing one of the more memorable moments from the show that year.
But the singer also killed it performing “I’m Gonna Getcha Good,” her hit song about a would-be paramour with a lover in his or her sights.

The Singer Through the Years
Twain won Entertainer of the Year at the 1999 CMA Awards, following in the footsteps of Reba McEntire, who’d won it 13 years earlier. But that, along with the CMA International Artist Achievement Award, was her last CMA Awards win.
“I’m embarrassed that I’m crying,” Twain said during her speech. She also gave a nod to Dolly Parton, who was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame that night. “I have to meet Dolly Parton tonight after the show. She is my biggest inspiration of all time and she can’t leave the building until I at least meet her!”
Twain also won Entertainer of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards that year and took home four Grammys for her record Come On Over, Billboard reports.
The country star has performed at multiple awards shows besides the CMAs. More recently, she performed from Switzerland at the 2020 CMT Awards.
In that performance, Twain toured a Charlie Chaplin museum full of mannequins in Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland singing “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”
The performance recalled Twain’s original music video, which took place in a diner full of men who gave her the cold shoulder. The mannequins similarly ignored her. But Twain’s performance at the awards show drew rave reviews.
Clad in a leopard print blouse and a beige vest with fringed tassels, silver pants and boots, Twain cruised through the Charlie Chaplin museum, at one point singing to a mannequin of Chaplin himself.
All told, the singer appears to be no less an entertainer in 2020 than she was in 2002.
