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 don’t think either of them are that well-dressed. Too weird for my taste!

Christina Aguilera has something that Shaikra is missing. She definetly has bigger star quality and a better voice. Pics of Christina entertaining and off camera are different. She doesn’t wear the stuff she wears on The Voice in her personal life. Thats all for theatrics. They are both beautiful Latin women.

Christina, she was always doing the unexpected and kept the show exciting. The show will not be the same without her.

Christina! I miss her now that I’ve seen the show with the new judges I don’t think I’m going to continue to watch. I like the talent but it’s just boring with out christina :-(

How come these singing competitions nowadays are more focused on the judges rather than the contestants? I hear more about Christina and Adam, and Mariah vs. Niki than who wins these things!

Love Shakira! She seemed a little nervous last night, but you could tell she will be just fine!
