AceShowbiz - Christina Aguilera has brought powerful and dramatic performances at the 2021 People's Choice Awards. When taking the stage of the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California, the former judge of "The Voice" spoiled the attendees with a medley of her greatest hits.
Kicking things off, the 40-year-old veteran pop star sang a rock rendition of her debut single "Genie in a Bottle" in a stunning black lace gown. After entering the smoky stage, the singer was joined by a number of violinists.
Christina then changed her outfit into a yellow and black leather costume. The Grammy winner went on to belt out "Dirrty", a verse from "Fighter" and transitioned into "Ain't No Other Man" off her 2006 album "Back to Basics".
After singing the fast-paced songs, Christina entertained fans with her most recent single "Somos Nada" from her upcoming Spanish-language album, "Pa Mis Muchachas". The musician later closed out her gig with her self-acceptance anthem, "Beautiful".
At the Tuesday night award-winning show, Christina was honored with the inaugural Music Icon Award for her contribution to music. When accepting the accolade, which was presented by Latin star Becky G, she said, "I have always strived for my music to communicate messages of empowerment, whether it's speaking my own truths or giving voice to those unable to do so on their own."
Christina added, "My artistry has always been for the fighters in this world, for those who face adversity, for those wanting to evoke change, my music is for you." She later gushed, "Believing in yourself is often the biggest obstacle of all, and throughout the years I've heard your stories about the impact of songs like 'Beautiful', 'Fighter'. 'Can't Hold Us Down', and yes, even 'Dirrty'. Thank you for your stories. Thank you for listening. And thank you for fighting. You inspire me every day."
