Christina Aguilera made a splash at the 2014 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. This is the first time the singer has appeared at the festival, wowing the crowd with favorites Lady Marmalade,” “Dirrty,” ”Candyman,” ”Ain’t No Other Man,” ”Beautiful,” ”What a Girl Wants,” and “Fighter.”
Spectators couldn’t get enough of the pop diva. “I’ve seen her at the Super Bowl and in her movies, like ‘Burlesque,’ and she’s just an amazing performer.” Jazz Festival attendee Morgan Griffith told the Associated Press, “She doesn’t just sing. It’s everything on cue: the dancers, the setup … just everything.”
But one could say another star of the show was Aguilera’s unborn daughter, since the singer makes no attempts to hide her pregnancy on stage. “This baby girl has already hit the stage in Malaysia,” she said in an email, “It’s mama’s job. We roll with it. She’ll be listening to the concert from inside me. … That’s pretty special.”
Pop, soul, and a little rock n' roll! Thanks for inspiring my most eclectic set list yet #jazzfest2014 XoXtina pic.twitter.com/bA12l7xE4j

In March, Aguilera announced she was pregnant with her second child. She and her fiance, Matthew Rutler, said they didn’t plan the pregnancy. Although it hasn’t stopped Aguilera from performing, she announced she would not be appearing in the seventh season of the TV show The Voice.
The Pregnancy has also had its other drawbacks for the pop star. A source told Disney Dreaming that Aguilera wasn’t happy to the way pregnancy was affecting her looks:
Christina worked really hard to get that body. For her to be pregnant so soon after getting in such great shape is throwing her for a loop. She’s definitely thinking about the weight gain after everything she did to get so thin. She wants to stay in shape now and won’t overindulge. Christina’s very vain. She’ll want to look perfect on her wedding day!
Fans would say that the pregnancy hasn’t deterred her performance. Already, YouTube has seen them upload videos of the performance, where you can make your own judgment:
