Since it’s also nearly the end of the year, we decided to take a look back at some of our fave Xtina moments from 2013. With a super cute boyfriend, a near-win on The Voice, and a song currently charting on iTunes, it’s safe to say this has been a banner year for the pop diva (aren’t they all?). But there were a few highlights.
Our all-time fave Xtina moment this season on The Voice was her super tender performance of “Say Something” with A Great Big World. While Christina usually glams it up, for this performance, she wore a beanie, white tee, and skinny jeans. She let the music and her voice speak for themselves, and the message was loud and clear — this girl rocks.
What happens when two divas share the same stage (no, this isn’t a joke)? Answer: Magic. On last night’s finale episode, Lady Gaga and Xtina put to rest any rumors that they are feuding and joined each other on stage for a duet of Gaga’s “Do What U Want”. Dueling divas can sometimes be a nightmare but these two powerhouses — with their matching platinum ‘dos and champagne lamé getups — were truly something to behold.
Ever wondered what was in Blake Shelton’s cup anyway? He is a notorious beer drinker, after all! Christina didn’t mince any words in a recent interview with Jay Leno. “Oh, Blake. I’m not sure he knows exactly what’s going on,” she joked. “He likes to keep that cup nice and full and iced … I could be a cocktail waitress on that show on the side for all the guys.” We love this candid Christina!
Half the fun of watching The Voice is wondering what ensemble Christina is going to choose for the night, and we love when she catches us off guard. That’s exactly what she did when she donned this demure schoolgirl outfit with a headband braid and dark burgundy lips. We love Adam, but why doesn’t Xtina start her own clothing line!?
Just as we love when she goes demure in her style choices, we also swoon when she shows off her sultry side. It’s obvious she feels sexier than ever, and we loved when she wore this stunning, black band-aid dress. We can only imagine Blake, Adam, and Cee Lo approved as well.
Just as you don’t know what she’s going to wear, you also never know what Xtina is going to do, or how she is going to make her entrance. Her entrances are always grand, and the grandest was by far during the duet of “How I Feel” with Flo Rida. Girlfriend showed up sitting in a giant, dangling gold hoop, wearing what looked to be a burlesque outfit. It was hot, hot, hot.
Perhaps one of the biggest and best moments of season five on The Voice was Xtina’s medley of Jackson hits with her team members. It was the same week Adam was named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” but the medley basically threw shade at him, as all eyes were on her and team members Jacquie Lee and Matthew Schuler (perhaps because Xtina showed up sans pants and wearing fishnet stockings!). The medley started off with Janet Jackson’s “Black Cat,” which was followed by a duet of “Scream” with Matthew. All three singers came together at the end for a super-charged rendition of the well-known hit “Bad”. Bad? It was bad ass!
