Let it be known that not only is Christina Aguilera an incredible singer, she’s also got decent chops as a celebrity impersonator, and she shows off those skills in a new YouTube video.
In it, she imagines Britney Spears, Cher, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Sia and Shakira as judges on The Voice (of course, Shakira had kept Xtina’s seat warm when she took a brief sabbatical from the show)..
Of course, it’s not her first time doing impressions of Brit Brit, Cher and Shakira; she mimicked their voices while playing with the “Musical Impressions Generator” with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show back in February.
This time, however, she had the aid of a costume department, and instead of copying their singing voices, she had fun by parodying their personalities. Miley Cyrus for instance promises that she’ll teach her team to twerk, Cher complains about her moving chair (“I have an Oscar for God’s sake, an Emmy, a Tony!”) and hasn’t heard of the other coaches (“Adam Levine? Is that my accountant?”), Lady Gaga wants to change the color of her chair (“Can we make it mirrors? Can we throw bacon on it?”). She also apes Shakira’s accent and talks at great length. Sia of course, doesn’t speak at all, communicating through a miniature version of herself.
