Most recently seen as a celebrity dancer on ABC's popular "Dancing with the Stars," Master P is a legend in the music industry.

One of country music's leading ladies, Lee Ann Womack's country-soul delivery has stunned critics and fans since her 1997 self-titled debut. In 2000, "I Hope You Dance" made her a household name. She tops countless 2005 Top Ten lists and was the most-awarded artist at this year's Country Music Awards. She recently was nominated for a Grammy in the Country Female vocal category, in addition to three nominations at the 2006 Academy of Country Music Awards.
Lil' Romeo, Master P's son, released his self-titled debut album in 2001. His first single, "My Baby," soared to the top of the Billboard charts. He has won a number of awards, including the Kid's Choice Award for Best Male Actor and an American Music Award.
