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 looks like a hot mess like she woke up and poured hair spray on her hair and went to work. I like Christina far better and has a way better voice…

Shakira, by a LONG shot!!!

Without a doubt…Shakira. Christina has no class, never has and never will. I just started watching the Voice because she is gone!

I love the new judges on The Voice. I think Usher and Sharkira are much better than Xtina and Celo. Like it much better this year.

I’ve only ever heard one song from Shakira. Christina has been given God given talent and she uses it well. Shakira is just a singer.

I don’t know or care who the better singer is, I know I like Shakira a lot more personality wise than Christina. She seems so genuine and not so serious

I prefer Shakira, she seems much more genuine. I watched some last year, but found Christina too self-absorbed. Love having Shakira & Usher added into the mix. Found the show much much better.

I really love Shakira on this show! Christina might have bigger “star power” but Shakira is so much more fun to watch – she is engaging, funny, and yes she’s a mega-star but she still comes across as relatable. I’d be totally fine if she replaced Christina permanently.

I think Usher is a great addition, too, but I still love CeeLo – Can the Voice just have 5 judges? :)
