Anyone who has ever wondered what it was like to attend a 1940’s WWII-era USO ball likely loved Christina Aguilera’s recent performance of “Candyman” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. While this isn’t even close to the first time The Voice coach has shunned pants, it was the first time the audience was filled with U.S. troops. And, if the hoots and hollers that came from the them were any indication, they sure loved it.

The reaction couldn’t have come as that big of a surprise to the pop diva, who looked smokin’ hot in her itty bitty sailor outfit. Christina was glad to honor the troops, even telling Jay after the performance that her father was in the military.

“My father was a sergeant in the army when I was younger,” she said. “I have a lot of respect for you guys and what you do.” She quickly added, “And all you women.”

Speaking of girl power, Xtina also talked to Jay about a recent encounter she had with Hillary Clinton while in DC for the World Food Program. She said Hillary has a “magical energy” and said, “What a strong woman.”

When Jay asked her whether she thinks Hillary will run for office in 2016, Xtina gave the perfect P.C. answer, joking, “Us women –– we like to make the men feel like they run the show but we’re the inner workings.”

She then related it to her experience as a coach on The Voice, saying, “It’s tough being a woman in a man’s environment. On my show, I know what that’s like.”

What do you think of Christina's sexy sailor look?
