At last year's Grammys, singer Melissa Etheridge blew away the audience when she channeled Janis Joplin in the tune "Piece of My Heart." But it wasn't just Etheridge's raspy, blues-infused vocals that made the performance memorable: She had just finished chemotherapy for breast cancer and was completely bald. Today, she takes the stage at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in place of her friend Sheryl Crow. Crow was originally slated to perform today but was forced to cancel because she herself just underwent surgery for breast cancer. Throw on some pink in honor of Crow and scream for Etheridge at 6:45 p.m.
