2021 Latin GRAMMYs: Christina Aguilera Performs A Decadent, Grrl-Power-Filled Showcase
Christina Aguilera just made her triumphant return to the Latin GRAMMYs stage.
Appearing in an elegant sheer black dress, Xtina began her set by showcasing her gorgeous voice on the tender heartbreak ballad “Somos Nada.” Underscored by an emotive grand piano, her signature wail had the capacity to mesmerize us all.
From gut-wrenching lovelorn balladry, the American-Ecuadorian singer then transitioned to “Pa Mis Muchachas.” Amid sparkly chandeliers, the “Beautiful” singer re-entered the scene, sporting a sultry black corset, channeling a cross between “Lady Marmalade” and “Smooth Criminal,” exuding a gothic-elegant edge with riot-grrl antics.
In 1999, Christina Aguilera broke the American music market before breaking the internet was even a thing with her inescapable hit “Genie in a Bottle,” and redefined American pop for a new era while at it.
Aside from revitalizing the teenage pop wave, she also became one of the most popular pop stars in the world. She crossed over into the Latin industry, releasing whirling love ballads alongside mariachi icon Alejandro Fernández, like “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti.”
