Who Has the Better 'Voice' Style: Shakira or Christina Aguilera?

If you watched last night’s season 4 premiere of The Voice, you may have noticed two major additions (Shakira and Usher) and one significant absence: Christina Aguilera‘s inimitable judging wardrobe.

After several seasons of Aguilera’s wacky headpieces and show-stopping hair rivaling the action onstage, new judge Shakira’s decidedly more low-key look was either a total snooze or a breath of fresh air, depending on your perspective.

Both stars favored similarly sparkly black tops for their judge’s seat ensemble (above) though Aguilera jazzed hers up with a headband, jewelry, a fan and patterned tights. Their first performances of the season, however, couldn’t have been more different (below): last year, Aguilera opted for a silver sequined bustier and knee-high boots, while Shakira chose a black mini and lace-ups last night.

We’re loving Shakira’s chic monochromatic outfits so far, but there is a part of us that will miss Aguilera’s theatrics throughout the season. Tell us: Whose Voice style do you prefer?

I really think Shakira is a better judge than Christina to be honest they need to keep her and Usher they are much better..The chemistry between the four judges is way better. Christina and Ceelo can stay gone because their replacements are way better

Christina Aguilera & Shakira are both AWESOME on The Voice!!

As we all know Christina and Cee Lo took this season off to do other stuff and will be back for the next season. So chill out everyone, don’t get your undies in a bunch!

Shakira is way better she is classy unlike christina and she just had a baby. Not only is she a great singer but shes smart and defends human rights, christina could never be compared to her

I didn’t know much about Shakira. I have heard of her, but have not followed her career. I love love love having her on the show! Christina was getting on my nerves! I do miss Cee Lo though!
