Christina Aguilera on Connan and The 2010 American Music Awards

christina Aguilera fat 2010
In spite of gaining a little weight-  by Hollywood standards-and looking a little tired, Christina Aguilera is still out there promoting the release of her upcoming film Burlesque.

Firstly at the 2010 American Music Awards where she performed Express and more recently on Late Night With Conan O’Brien where she sang the jazzy, Something got a hold on me.Both Performances were a little sloppy and lacklustre, with her voice sounding darker and heavier than usual.However, there's no denying she still has amazing pipes.

Christina performs "Express" at the2010 American Music Awards:

Christina performed the movie theme song Express for the first time live at the America Music Awards 2010. Unfortunately, Christina came off more trashy stripper than classy burlesque dancer in this live performance. At least the song and voice sounded good.

Late Night With Conan O’Brien Show "Something Got a Hold On Me"
A 60's inspired ditty about Love getting a hold of a person. Another solid vocal performance, but please Christina we can do with less growling and grunting,it makes listening to you a little painful.


  1. I think you were pretty fair. She can do better.

  2. Considering the song choice in the second video, I think she was right on. Blues music is much deeper then that light poppy crap the world is used to with Aguilera. Her focus has gone much deeper then it once was and her vocal style will reflect that. I'm not a fan of hers at all... so speaking from an unbiased stance, unless you understand how vocals, emotion, and genre collide? Maybe just respect the gift she has versus passing judgment on when she chooses to do new things with it you don't like.

  3. @anon, Not being a "fan" of hers i assume you did not hear her last album Bionic? It contains perhaps some of the most immature lyrics I've heard, so please don't come at me with claims about her becoming "deeper" all of a sudden. Plus just because she's now singing the "blues", a genre classification I don't agree with, does not automatically give her depth by virtue of singing in that style. Listen to the original Etta James version of "Something's Got a Hold on Me" and you'll see that this "depth" you speak of is just an imitation of Etta.

    As for "passing Judgement" on her I think you need to lighten up. She is indeed a great singer- I've even commented on her great performances for example here ("http://divadevotee.blogspot.com/2010/12/christina-aguilera-performs-lift-me-up.html)- and if she wants to sing with grunts and growls now then that is her prerogative but i stand by my comment of it being painful to listen to. I am actually a fan of Christina so surely my minor critique of her singing counts just as much as a positive comment from someone who doesn't even purchase her music?

    But Thanks for your comment, It gives me a chance to tell people who come to the blog on this post that I am actually a fan of Ms Aguilera, just not certain vocal traits she employs.

  4. I think she was heavy with the grunts and growls because she was attempting to be on par with the original singer of the song Etta James. Although between the two Christina's was less growled and strained if you ask me.

  5. My problem is with the band. The tempo is all over the place! How can Christina be expected to sing if she's uncomfortable with the tempo? 

  6. Jesus christ why can't she just sing the dam song !

  7. Everything is very open with a precise clarification of the issues.
    It was really informative. Your website is very useful.

  11. I'm amazed, I have tto admit. Selom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative aand entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

  15. The movie is written by Reid Carolin and directed by Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, the Ocean's films, among many others).

    Please note: Since this article was adapted from an astrology lecture, the following examples
    of Uranian energy may be a bit challenging to digest but, if
    you skip over the "astrologese" portions, (unless it's your second language),
    you'll still be able to catch the gist. Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty looks set to up the ante, with over 45
    minutes of cinematics propelling the story along.
