It doesn't take a genius to recognize that Christina Aguilera has a pretty darn good voice.
I mean, remember her Lady Marmalade verse? It was amazing.
The woman can sing.
Aguilera, along with other notable female vocalists, haven't been shy about their love for Whitney Houston, and how much the late singer influenced their own singing. Which is probably why Christina accepted the opportunity to perform a medley of Whitney's songs at this year's AMAs.
Those who saw the tribute, however, gave some mixed reviews of Aguilera's performance. Some were big fans.
I’m so proud of Christina. My girl always pulls thru and delivers a stellar performances.— Whitney 👸🏾🎈 (@blackgirlicon) November 20, 2017
Others were not so kind.
While others pointed out that fellow professional vocalists weren't feeling it either.
Some conceded that yes, Aguilera is no Whitney, but that doesn't mean the performance is bad, because we'll probably never get another Whitney, ever.
what people gotta understand is whitney houston’s vocal range is forever unmatchable so nobody can SANG EXACTLY her vocal range ever in this life... but christina is doing great— ◡̈ (@softsglow) November 20, 2017
I keep saying Whitney Elizbaeth Houston Tributes should be award shows showing her old performances Christina didn’t even do bad at all, it was actually really good IMO but it still wasn’t even a fraction of the greatest vocalist of all time, she truly will always be the VOICE.— Armani (@elusivewizard) November 20, 2017
As for Pink, she offered some clarification on the "face" she made during Aguilera's tribute while simultaneously confirming that the two singers squashed their beef a while back.
As for Aguilera, she doesn't seem too concerned with the haters, and released this message, saying she hopes she did Houston proud.
What did you think of her performance?
