After announcing she’ll be back on the red chair at The Voice for the 5th season, Christina Aguilera took the stage of the MGM Grand Las Vegas during the Billboard Music Awards on May 19th, 2013. Unfortunately she didn’t sing a song from her latest album Lotus, but served as supporting singer for Pitbull once again. I’m not complaining because it’s always great to see her sing at a public event, but I’m just waiting for the day when she gets back the place she deserves in the world of music, which is certainly not the supporting vocalist. In any case, she looked smashing, wearing a very nice outfit and sporting a spectacular make-up and hairstyle.
Whoa! Christina showed off her legs with a short black skirt, pairing it to a black top and matching cardigan. She completed the outfit with a pair of sky-high metallic peep-toe pumps. Words fail when it comes to describing how much her style has improved since the 3rd season of The Voice. I love everything about this outfit, because it’s sexy but not skimpy, it’s event-appropriate but refined. I would like to see her sporting something more flamboyant, but she looked perfect like this.
You know I’ve got a thing for gifs, and Christina looks so beautiful and sexy in these above. Her hair has never looked this gorgeous, styled in soft waves with a side parting, and her make-up… awww, such a dramatic smokey eye, paired to nude lips and beautifully defined cheekbones. I am in awe ♥
If you haven’t watched the performance yet, here it is. I’m a bit perplexed because of the LOUD pre-recorded vocals: Christina sang live but her voice was barely audible because of the noise in the background. I’m also glad that Pitbull decided to pay homage to the original song he had sampled in his track; Morten Harket, the singer of the Norwegian pop band A-Ha, joined him and Christina on stage to sing an excerpt from Take On Me, his most famous song. A nice performance indeed, full of energy.
I don’t know what Christina’s following steps will be, but I really hope she will keep on giving us a glimpse of her fierceness.
