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 love them both!!! I like Christina because she has a naturally beautiful voice and I like some of the stuff she wore….I like Shakira because she is honest and full of talent too….and they both have a passion for developing new talent. I think Shakira was the perfect person to replace Christina….I do miss Cee-Lo though….Usher in my opinion is way overrated……

Ok why are you guys trying to compare them, they are both phenomenal in their own way. It’s almost like you want to stir up a bunch of BS. Good grief we are not in high school.

I enjoyed Christina to a point. But so far, Shakira has a really cool, down to earth style. Plus, the girl is hilarious. Her Country to English dictionary bit was funny. “I reckon…”

Christina is a bigger star. I like Shakira and think she is a better dresser, but this competition is about singing. Hands down, that’s Christina!

Shakira, hands down, no debating. This woman is a cross-cultural phenom. Her sincerity is quite obviously and she’s not condescending and jeolousy like Xtina. When Xtina judged, she was mean to contestants not on her team. She would look around and always look disinterested. It was so rude. I know Shakira would never be so obnoxious. I hope Shakira stays for many seasons.

Oh, love Usher!

Christina HANDS DOWN

Christina for sure! She was always the best coach and had great advice on song and performance choices for her team. Shakira is a unique singer but I don’t think she will be able to teach her team much of anything

Christina has her hands down with her range.
