Throughout the 2000s, Norwood held a precarious position in the pop industry.
In 2002, she starred in the reality series Brandy: Special Delivery, documenting the birth of her daughter.
Her third and fourth albums, Full Moon (2002) and Afrodisiac (2004), were released to critical and commercial success.
Ralph Macchio has enjoyed a great run this season, but did he do enough to earn a spot in the Dancing With the Stars finals last night? His Argentine tango with Karina Smirnoff was a crowd-pleaser, both feisty and precise, yet the judges felt it lacked something in the emotional department.
It won't guarantee their safety in a reality show voted on by millions of fans, but Ralph Macchio, Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane proved they were a cut above the rest of the competition last night on Dancing With the Stars. Despite some "weird" hand movements and a hairstyle modeled after Rod Blagojevich, Ralph Macchio raced to an early lead on Dancing With the Stars.
The Karate Kid and Karina Smirnoff quickstepped to the top spot after their fall (literal and otherwise) last week, joining Hines and Kym Johnson with 66 each. The Karate Kid star and partner Karina Smirnoff finished the first show with a total of 24 points, edging Kirstie Alley and Hines Ward for the top score.
After several lawsuits stemming from the accident, Norwood's fifth album, Human (2008), was released to commercial failure.
In the 2010s, Norwood received a critical and commercial resurgence.
