After taking a season off to promote her latest album Lotus, Christina Aguilera has returned to judge The Voice: Season 5 and also contributed a song to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.
Introduced to the world as a member of the New Mickey Mouse Club in 1994 (along with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling, among others), Christina Aguilera first gained notoriety as a solo artist with a song from the Disney film Mulan,” Reflection.” The song peaked at #20 and was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song. She followed that success with her debut album, which spawned the hit singles Genie In A Bottle and What A Girl Wants, both chart-toppers. From that point on, Aguilera’s career has been non-stop, with chart-topping hits like “Beautiful” and “Dirrty.” In 2003, Aguilera’s co-headlining Justified & Stripped tour with Justin Timberlake generated nearly $20 million dollars in ticket sales. With her signature powerhouse voice and trained dance moves, Aguilera’s concerts are filled with energetic, thrilling performances. She brought that energy to her collaboration with Lil’ Kim, Mya, and Pink on the classic disco song “Lady Marmalade,” which spent five weeks at the top of the Hot 100 Billboard Chart. Aguilera also records in Spanish as well as in English, and plans to release new material in 2014.
