One of the original coaches on “The Voice” alongside Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera was a judge on “The Voice” for six seasons between 2011 and 2016.

For a while, everyone was hoping that she would eventually return to the show. However, the Grammy-winner has made clear she’ll never be a coach on “The Voice” again.

“What I was doing last year with ‘Liberation’ was kind of a shedding of a certain skin on some level,” she told People magazine about her eighth studio album.

“Prior to that, I had given myself fully to television and being a part of a network that really wasn’t quite the fit for me after the amount of time I put in,” she added about leaving the popular singing competition.

“I wanted to get grounded again in my artist body, and that’s what I did with ‘Liberation,’” the “Beautiful” singer continued.

“Moving on to this era, it’s just an exciting time of fresh energy. Vegas is coming at the perfect time for me,” she said of her extremely profitable Las Vegas residency.

“I was so scared to be on tour for so long. It took me a long time. I originally took the seat on ‘The Voice’ because it kept me in a little bit of a more grounded position for my children,” she said about the “The Voice” job enabling her to spend time with her family.

“But after a certain amount of time, of course, the artist in me was like, ‘I have to evolve!’ I was just very afraid of going out on tour and the instability I felt it would maybe impose on my children,” she emphasized.

In May 2018, Aguilera told Billboard magazine about exiting “The Voice”: “It became something that I didn’t feel was what I had signed up for in season one…You realize it’s not about music. It’s about making good TV moments and massaging a story.”

“I didn’t get into this business to be a television show host and to be given all these [rules]…Especially as a female: You can’t wear this, can’t say that. I would find myself on that show desperately trying to express myself through clothing or makeup or hair. It was my only kind of outlet,” she added.

Frank Sinatra would have turned 100 years old on December 12, 2015, so we were not surprised to see the music industry powerhouses out and about paying homage to the late legend.

One of the many fantastic artists to take the stage for the iconic singer was Christina Aguilera.

Christina performed alongside artists such as Fantasia and Sting. Joining actor Seth MacFarlane on stage, she sang the iconic “New York, New York,” the theme song from the Martin Scorsese film New York, New York (1977).

Yup, you read that right — the comedian actually sings and sounds like Sinatra.

Christina arrived at the event in a cleavage-baring old Hollywood dress by Versace which she paired with crystal-encrusted Christian Louboutin “Very Riche” heels.
