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?

Shakira is classy….

I love them both but enough with bashing Christina. Christina is the better coach and that is all. I love Shakira but believe it or not Christina Aguilera was the one that got me excited about Spanish. Yes, Shakira does well around the world because she speaks several languages but lets give Aguilera some credit. Look at her journey, she was a little goal on a mickey mouse show, came out with her debut CD then a Spanish record and boom! She has the best voice. Many may not like her attitude but I have been to all of her concerts in Michigan and she really appreciates and cares about her fans, give her a break. I’m tired of the talk of her weight, she is a person, woman, daughter, sister and mother; she can live her own life. Shakira made me love her years ago with Ojos Asi. For those of you who don’t know it’s one of her earlier songs before she became known in America. I have listened to them both but “Baby Jane/XTina” has my heart. She is an icon and people need to give her the respect she deserves. Its so sad that when artists die thats when people wants to offer fake respect. She is a true DIVA and so what.

THANK GOD for Usher and Shakira. Last night’s show was great. I certainly don’t miss seeing Christina’s fake orange tan body stuffed into clothes three sizes too small, nor CeLo in his pajamas (like he’s some kind of Hugh Hefner wannabe) making lecherous remarks to all the female contestants. The judges were funny and so respectful to all the contestants.

Shakira is so much better than Christina. Christina was really tiresome with her antics and her bantering was annoying! Shakira also has so much more talent than Christina, her music crosses several different genres.

I like Shakira. Christina dressed like hooker and her makeup was painful to look at.

Shakira is very pregnant during the auditions, what is she supposed to wear you weirdos?

They are both talented artist but definitely Christina has the better voice. However, Shakira is the whole package wrapped into one. And for those of you that said that Christina is worldwide known…so is Shakira. Christina has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and Shakira over 70 worldwide. You do the math as to whom is the bigger artist!
