Just last week, Christina Aguilera released her powerful new ballad “Change.” Given the recent events that took place in Orlando, the poignant lyrics really hit home. It’s hard not to get a little emotional as X-tina belts it out.

The 35-year-old entertainer dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform her charity single live for the first time. She is donating 100% of the song’s proceeds for the next three months to the National Compassion Fund to directly benefit the Orlando shooting victims and their families

As always, Aguilera delivers a stellar performance. Check it out below.

“Waiting for a change to set us free
Waiting for the day when you can be you and I can be me
Waiting for hope to come around
Waiting for the day when hate is lost and love is found”

Wow!!! Absolutely beautiful. I seriously got a little emotional listening to the poignant lyrics of Christina Aguilera’s powerful new ballad “Change.” The 35-year-old powerhouse really hit this one out of the ballpark. Sometimes her vocal acrobatics can be a tad much, but she walks the line perfectly in this instance.

In the wake of the horrible Orlando massacre, Aguilera decided to release her new offering as a charity single. This marks her first proper release since 2012. All proceeds will be used to help families affected by the tragic event.

“The horrific tragedy that occurred in Orlando continues to weigh heavily on my mind. I am sending so much love and so many prayers to the victims and their families. Like so many, I want to help be part of the change this world needs to make it a beautiful inclusive place where humanity can love each other freely and passionately,” Christina said in a statement on her official website. “We live in a time of diversity, in a time of endless possibilities, in a time where expression of oneself is something to be celebrated. And I am left wondering how people filled with so much love could be taken by so much hate. Though there is such heavy sadness I believe that there is much more love in the world than we know. We need to learn to love again, we need to learn that one person does make a difference; we need to keep love in our hearts. As Nelson Mandela once said, ‘No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. We all have the choice to spread love, encourage individuality and make a difference to others – we are all in this together, as one, united in love.”

Check out the lyric video below which features X-Tina rocking red hair while pics and videos from her childhood appear in a slideshow. Christina is back folks!!!

Christina Aguilera was originally supposed to duet with a hologram of Whitney Houston on the Season 10 finale of The Voice. However, Pat Houston, the executor of Houston’s estate, pulled the plug after being dissatisfied with the quality of the hologram.

“We are so appreciative of the opportunity for the Whitney Houston hologram to appear on NBC’s The Voice with a talent pairing as extraordinary as Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston. We were looking to deliver a ground breaking duet performance for the fans of both artists. Holograms are new technology that take time to perfect, and we believe with artists of this iconic caliber, it must be perfect. Whitney’s legacy and her devoted fans deserve perfection. After closely viewing the performance, we decided the hologram was not ready to air. We have much respect and appreciation for Christina, and she was absolutely flawless.” – Pat Houston

With the highly-anticipated duet dunzo, producers came up with an alternative plan. Since Ariana Grande was already booked to appear on the finale, it only made sense that these two powerhouse vocalists perform together. After Grande sang her new single, “Into You,” X-Tina strutted out to join Ariana on “Dangerous Woman.”

Overall, it was fine but I’m sure if they had more time to craft a proper duet, it would’ve been phenomenal. I much preferred Aguilera and Lady Gaga’s epic duet on “Do What U Want” a few seasons ago much better. Watch the duet below, and relive Aguilera and Gaga’s insane growl-off.

Well, that sucks. I was beyond excited to see these two divas perform together.

For the Season 10 finale of The Voice next week, Christina Aguilera was supposed to perform a duet with a hologram of Whitney Houston. Reportedly, they were set to sing a medley of Houston’s hits including “I Have Nothing.” Sadly, it appears that’s not going to happen anymore.

Pat Houston, who is the executor of Houston’s estate, issued a statement to Entertainment Tonight canceling the highly-anticipated moment. Read below the reasons why in this statement, along with the leaked video of the performance.

Hologram USA announced last year plans of a world tour featuring Whitney Houston. Is it wrong I kinda want to buy tickets? It appears the first stop for Whit’s hologram will be The Voice. Definitely fitting given that she was often times called “The Voice.”

According to Entertainment Tonight, Christina Aguilera will duet with the late great singer on “I Have Nothing” during the Season 10 finale of the singing competition. Naturally, Aguilera didn’t confirm or deny the rumors.

“I am sworn to secrecy,” she told ET ahead of the Monday episode of “The Voice”. “I can’t say anything, but I’m very excited about the finale. Very exciting things happening.” NBC also declined to comment.

This wouldn’t be the first time, X-Tina has been in the presence of Houston. She paid tribute to Whitney back in 2001 at the BET Awards with a sensational cover of “Run To You.” If you recall, Whitney’s reaction after the performance was everything. Relive that epic moment below, along with checking out rehearsal footage of Christina preparing for the finale.

Like Ariana Grande and Christina Aguilera before her, Demi Lovato engaged in a round of “Wheel of Musical Impressions” during her stop on The Tonight Show. The 23-year-old belted out classic children tunes like “Bingo Was His Name-O” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” while taking on different musical personas.

Though Lovato’s impersonations weren’t as killer as Grande and Aguilera, they were a valiant effort. Her best, in my opinion, was the Spongebob Squarepants theme song as X-tina. She belted out the big notes flawlessly but sounded more like Demi than The Voice mentor. Check out the clip below.

Christina Aguilera’s highly-touted ‘surprise’ appearance finally took place on Lip Sync Battle last night. The Voice judge dropped by to help Hayden Panettiere battle Eva Longoria. The Nashville co-stars joined forces on Aguilera’s mammoth hit, “Lady Marmalade.”

Despite the star wattage, Panetteire lost out to Longoria who didn’t have a special guest star in tow. Unless, of course, you don’t count that extra butt padding, the Telenovela packed on to perform Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda.” Never underestimate the power of Minaj 😉 Check out the performance below.

When Spike TV released the first trailer for the second season of Lip Sync Battle, this was the one performance I was looking forward to the most. Admit it, you were too. Christina Aguilera bringing out her massive Dee Snider hair to revisit “Lady Marmalade.” It’s going to epic.

The Voice mentor pops up this Thursday, February 11 to assist Hayden Panettiere’s battle against Eva Longoria. Hopefully, the Telenovela actress has an ace up her sleeve as well, because the duo of Hayden and X-Tina is gonna be hard to beat. Clearly, these two hit it off when Aguilera appeared on Nashville. Check out the promo below.
