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?

#XTINA! Shakira is cool too, but cannot be compared talent-wise to #XTINA. The show really not what it was without her, she is definitely missed, but cannot wait for her return! BUY #LOTUS and #BIONIC they are incredible albums!

Christina Aguilera was more entertaining, for sure. Even though the talent is best this year, the judges are a little less fun, so far.

Too obvious!!!!! SHAKIRA is a definition of being a great artist. She plays instrumentes like guitar, harmonica, drums. She speaks english,spanish and portuguese. Shakira has now sold over 125 million records worldwide confirmed by Sony. CRISTINA AGULERA has a great voice and She has sold nearly 50 million albums worldwide.

I am the biggest Shakira fan ever, huge poster in my room and her CD’s are taped to my wall, but I’m the first to admit, even at her vocal best, Shakira can’t compare to Christina.
But people who think Shakira sucks because her voice isn’t like Christina’s, or apparently ‘goat like’, don’t really understand the phenomena that is Shakira. For starts she has a unique voice and CAN actually sing, maybe youtube ‘Underneath your Clothes live’. Shaki bring way more to the table for coaching, she has worked her way up more than any other artist EVER! How many people who have made it to the American Top 40 come from a country like Columbia? She know’s exactly what it takes to reach the top! Her intelligence is through the roof, she can play multiple instruments, speak in multiple languages, write her own music, and she has dabbled in almost ever genre of music! Christina can barely keep her own career going, let alone coach someone else on how to run theirs…
