There aren’t many voices in the biz better than Christina Aguilera. She may be a tiny human, but her powerful pipes are a major force to be reckoned with. Girl can belt it out. We knew this about her, but we didn’t know just how many different voices she had in her.
The mom of two made a visit to Ellen DeGeneres’ show in LA this week to chat about her latest projects, her kids, and of course, in typical Ellen fashion, Xtina was coaxed into playing a game that put her talents to the test.
She passed with flying colours, of course.
The 35-year-old songstress was given just seconds to impersonate some of her musical peers as she played Heads Up! with the TV show host. Ellen had no trouble guessing each one.
First, Christina was challenged with Whitney Houston, where she belted out I Will Always Love You without missing a beat. Seriously, The Ellen Show’s audio equipment could barley handle the powerful chords that came out of Christina.
She followed that with Kay Perry’s I Kissed a Girl, Madonna’s Like a Virgin, and Beyoncé’s Single Ladies before channeling her inner Rihanna for Work (which she hilarious mumbles part of the words… what the heck is Riri saying there?)—the crowd and Ellen ate that one up.
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. The pop star has been coaching The Voice for years now—obviously she has serious control over her instrument.
Yeah, so she phones it in with Lady Gaga and blanks on Barbara Streisand, just saying the title of one of her songs (we love Ellen’s reaction), but she absolutely nails Adele with just one word: “Hello…”
The only thing that would have made this game better is if Christina wasn’t able to sing the musicians actual songs. Talk about good television. Catch the latest episodes of The Ellen Show on CTV.
