Christina Aguilera & Lady Gaga Join for ‘The Voice’By: Jennifer Curra - December 18, 2013
During the show, Lady Gaga took a moment to share her excitement about the opportunity to collaborate with Aguilera. “I was really excited because The Voice called and wanted me to perform on the finale, and I obviously can’t refuse such an amazing show. And I said, ‘I’ll do it, but I want to know if Christina wants to do it with me,'” Lady Gaga said.
The desire was mutual as Christina wasted no time in speaking about her admiration for the Born This Way singer. “This is the first time we’ve ever met, and I have to say, when I heard she wanted to collaborate, I said, of course, Lady Gaga. I’ve been waiting to meet her. She’s such an innovative artist and a risk taker, and as a fellow female, I have so much respect for that. And I just have to say, guys, she’s, like, the most down-to-earth, real person that I’ve met in this business. And female to female in this industry, it’s really hard to find that kind of a person. So I love you, girl, and you deserve everything you’ve earned,” Aguilera said.
The mutual respect did not come as a surprise to fans of the show. Lady Gaga had already taken to Twitter in order to vocalize her support for Team Christina’s Jacquie Lee as well as encourage her supporters to also vote for Christina’s talented protégé.
