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?

I love Shakira. I think she is more genuine that Christina. Don’t think it is fair to compare their vocal talents, they are different. Let’s wait and compare their mentoring talents. As far as their clothing style, Shakira is way more classy – but is also pregnant at this point in taping the show – not exactly going to come out in something like Christina would wear. Even is she wasn’t pregnant, I think her style is way more classy and rock star. She doesn’t need to have her “stuff” hanging out all over the place.

Shakira is a total breath of fresh air. You can tell she’s kind and innately happy and eager to help up and coming singers. She is awesome. It’s not about her – it’s about the singers. Christina won’t be missed.

Definitely Christina

I miss Christina….she is really a great asset to the Voice.
She has an electric personality and a singing voice to die for.

Shakira definitely dresses better! She’s beautiful and sexy in an effortless way. Christina always looked like she was trying to hard to be sexy, showing so much skin and wearing what amounted to lingerie as day clothes.

I LOVE Shakira she is so down to earth and very sweet. Christina can be a bit of a diva with an attitude with a I don’t care attitude but, I do like her. I would really like to go to one of both of their concerts. Both ladys are great. Christina has an beautiful voice and can hit unbelievable notes. Shakira is tandalizing to hear and very enjoyable.

I love Christina’s voice, but her choice of wardrobe on the show is not only shocking, but sometimes crude! Shakira is still new but so far I like what I see and so far, I think I prefer her. She’s beautiful, talented and seems classy

Shakira was pregnant during the blind auditions , but she obviously has more class, plus she barely uses make-up. Shakira is funnier, humble, adorable…she is not a Diva!! She may not hit the notes Christina does, but she is way more talented than Christina: Songwriter, bellydancer, singer, producer, musician, speaks many languages, etc. For got to mention that in her concerts she doesn’t use backup dancers, special effects or strange costumes. It’s all about her talent, that’s a real artist.

Christina Aguilera is a huge star!! Shakira only had one hit “Hips donr lie”, never had a No1 album or a successful tour and her latest singles flopped baddly. So “Numbers don’t lie”
