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?

Christina is “American”?? No, actually she is Hispanic and what does that have to do with anything? Shakira is a breath of fresh air, I hope Christina does NOT come back! Ratings are going UP UP UP without her!! I like CeeLo very much but I like Usher even more!

Shakira! Christina’s ego is too big..Shakira is more beautiful and sexy. Christina may have the better vocals but Shakira is more real. Its a good thing Christina has lost a few pounds. She was looking huge!

Hey John,
What’s wrong with you?
Being american doesnt make Christina better than Shakira!
This is ridiculous!

Christina often acted like a petulant 15year old on the show. and dressed like a hooker. it all came off as desperate and insecure, and a distraction. now it seems like there are 4 classy adult judges up there having fun… I knew nothing of Shakira before but she’s proven to be quite the package. she’s great. No doubt Aguilera has the pipes, but the strength of your voice obviously has nothing to do with your ability as a judge or mentor- Blake won it all last year. Is his voice stronger than Shakira’s, or Adams, or Ushers?? prolly not, but he’s still the man

I love Christina! Bring Christina back. The Voice is not exciting enough without her. She is intelligent and beautiful.

Whoever said Shakira can barely speak English is a complete moron. She has a better and wider vocabulary than any of the other judges, its just her accent that’s a little difficult to understand, but only ignorant Americans will have a problem with that. Her comments are more reasonable than Xtina’s biased ones and as far as coaching goes, she has done a great job with Garrett and JSun . So I think she’s gonna be a whole lot better than Xtina who only knows how to teach her team members how to yell on top of their voice like she used to do. Shakira has such a vibrant personality and clearly she is not interested in putting on airs just to hype up the show. All Xtina did was bat her eyeslashes and hiss at female singers who were better than her.

Shakira has an amazing voice and style. She is extremely versatile as an artist. I like that she isn’t a diva and I really hope The Voice hears the pleas of the new fans to keep her on the show.

Shakira !

I like both ladies, but XTina is much more entertaining and articulate and accurate with her feedback. Plus, I miss her random singing moments and the wild outfits. Shakira is also talented and very sweet, but I like to watch XTina more. If I can’t choose her without being an ignorant American, so be it.
