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 a great artist, but she seriously annoys me to frustration. I have no idea what she’s talking about half the time. If you’re going to claim to speak more than one language, you should be able to be understandable in some way. She isn’t. She’s not a fit for this show at all.

I like them both, but Shakira seems to have more of a sense of humor on the show and I enjoyed watching her more than Christina

Hmm, Shakira’s clothes fit her properly. She wins by default.

They are currently showing the blind auditions, which are pre-recorded. Shakira was still pregnant then.
