Time to break out those foam fingers, platinum blond wigs, and schoolgirl uniforms and get ready to join Christina Aguilera in some celebrity impersonations! In a promotional commercial released for the season finale of NBC’s The Voice Aguilera impersonated several of her fellow female pop stars while imagining how their try-outs for a judging position on the show would proceed.
Christina Aguilera tweeted out a link to the video with the caption “this was so fun! Fun tribute to those I love and admire,” signing the message XoXtina. Celebrities who got a shout out include Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Sia, Lady Gaga, Cher, and Shakira, and most of Aguilera’s impersonations were spot on. The big voiced songstress went all out for the commercial, donning a variety of costumes and channeling the spirit of each superstar.
Each impersonation brought something a little different to the commercial. Aguilera’s Miley Cyrus impression is filled with twerk and “Party in the USA” references, while her attempt at Sia pokes fun at her large blond wigs and relationship with fellow blonde bobbed Sia Mini-Me, Maddie Ziegler. She plays Spears as young and naïve and Shakira as offering overdrawn feedback.
Some of her most comical moments from the commercial come while impersonating Cher and Lady Gaga. Dressed in Gaga’s head to toe red lace bodysuit, Christina Aguilera asks if the iconic red chairs can be reupholstered or possibly covered in bacon. Why the outlandish request? She is afraid that her meat dress will stick to the fabric. Cher on the other hand gets confused about her fellow judges, thinking that Levine is her accountant.
This isn’t the first time that Christina Aguilera has made a video of celebrity impersonations. Earlier this year a video of her impersonations with Jimmy Fallon went viral online. In the video Aguilera recreated the iconic singing voices of several women. The most viral moment was when Aguilera sang “This Little Piggy” in the style of Spears’s breakout single “Baby One More Time.”
Since the video went viral Aguilera has clarified that it was all in good fun. “Doing impressions can go either way, so the fact that everyone liked it and could laugh with us was great.” She went on to dispel any rumors of a beef with Spears, claiming that she thinks she is great.
Yesterday was a busy day for the “Genie In A Bottle” siren. Christina Aguilera also appeared on the season finale of The Voice for a performance of B.B. King’s “The Thrill is Gone” and to congratulate the season’s winner. Earlier in the day, her contribution to the Finding Neverland soundtrack made its way online. Aguilera will be appearing on the soundtrack alongside fellow pop stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Nick Jonas, Kieza, and Trey Songz.
