Vocals For Days: Christina Aguilera Revisits The Hits On ‘Carpool Karaoke’
Christina Aguilera revisited some of her biggest hits and dropped some hot Mickey Mouse Club gossip during a segment of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. The 37-year-old agreed to keep the late night comedian company on his drive to work last night (April 23). On the way, they revisited her forever iconic LP Stripped with performances of anthems including “Fighter” and “Beautiful.” Delivering soaring vocals and just the right amount of nostalgia, Xtina paid tribute to her legacy while revisiting her debut release “Genie In A Bottle.”
Going back to the start, she and James talked about her days on Mickey Mouse Club with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. “Oh my God, you’re going in,” the big-voiced diva giggled as the host asked the hard-hitting questions about who she had a crush on back then. She admitted that JT had “swag” and alluded to some drama between her and Brit over his attention. Meanwhile, Ryan apparently had a crush on the “Toxic” siren. Talk about a love circle that was made for the tabloids.
During a performance of “Dirrty,” Melissa McCarthy made a surprise appearance to deliver Redman’s featured rap. The Lotus flower contributed a song called “Feels So Good” to the actress’ forthcoming film, Life of the Party, so the cameo seems like the beginning of a promotional tour. Of course, Xtina proceeded to give Melissa and James diva lessons and showcased her extensive vocal range. In all, it was one of the more memorable Carpool Karaoke’s in recent memory.
Noticeable absent from the appearance was any mention of the icon’s imminent comeback. Reports suggest her caviar ratchet opus is on the way, but we are unsure when. Last time Legend X provided an update, she kept things to the point by promising “it’s coming bitches.” Eventually. Despite appearing as a guest judge on a recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race and delivering a stunning photoshoot for Paper, Xtina has remained tight-lipped about the project in favor of highlighting past achievements.
Anticipation is sky-high for the elusive CA8, but it looks like she is going to leave us guessing a little longer. While we wait, watch her segment up top!
Prepare to be blessed. #XtinaCarpool premieres tonight during our Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special!
