Christina Aguilera only gave birth to daughter Summer Rain three months ago, but The Voice star is already getting back to work. The diva gave her first post-pregnancy performance at the Breakthrough Prize Awards, which honor scientists and other brilliant minds in the field.
In a gorgeous red dress that hugged all the right curves, Xtina whipped out a stunning rendition of her signature hit "Beautiful," performing it with just a piano backing her. After watching the footage, it's clear that having another little one to attend to hasn't messed with her vocals as the powerhouse sounded stronger than ever, growling through every note with ease. But beware: Your appetite for a new Christina album will only grow tenfold after watching the performance. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Speaking of a new album, Christina and her new Voice co-star Pharrell all but flat-out confirmed they were in the studio together via social media (below). Everyone remembers how Xtina ruled rhythm and blues and with throwback feel for her 2006 Back to Basics album ("Ain't No Other Man," anyone?). Could Pharrell be bringing her funky side back?
Funkytina or not, if these are the beginnings of Christina's comeback—and these are some very good notes to start on.
