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 thought the new judges were great, but Shakira is a tad bit boring for my tastes. Christina wasn’t that exciting either though.

I agree with Lisa…too much about the judges and also too much judge goofing around esp. this year. I love Christina’s chemistry with Adam, Blake, and Ceelo plus her honesty.. Shakira seems nice, but I want Christina and Ceelo both to return next season.

In reply to Sandra you are right…numbers don’t lie. Shakira has sold over 70 million albums and Christina over 50 millions. So you are correct, the numbers don’t lie. Hope you’re good at math!

Shakira hands down. At least the woman has class over that clown previously. I thought she was a good judge also and the repoire between the judges was great AND funny! Sorry, Christina is too over the top for my tastes.

Shakira is WAY better than Christina! I’ve watched the show since the beginning and Adam and Blake are the best hands down, but I do like Shakira and Usher being added. I miss Ceelo, but not Christina. She was too much of a diva for me. It is about the contestants on The Voice. That’s why it’s different than the others. This is just my opinion so no one needs to jump all over me.

I’m only watching this season because of SHAKIRA, Christina Aguilera she is so talented and I like her too. But with Shakira, the contestants will have something that any other judge could possibly be able to tell them, the massive global super stardom. Let’s be honest, Shakira doesn’t have the success that the other judges have HERE IN THE USA, but what is more important? Just the USA or the whole world? Shakira’s last world tour had 111 concerts around the world, she performed at the FIFA 2010 sport event, which has an audience like 10 times bigger than the super bowl and Shakira has 4 of the most sold singles of the decade and list goes on and on. SHAKIRA is an excellent addition for a global audience and success.
