Christina Aguilera VMA 2008 Performance


What the hell was Christina Aguilera thinking? She's looking more and more like Samantha Fox and is starting to regress back to the '90s. I get that she wants to sex it up because she's been spending all her time playing mommy and wife but man, take a breather.

Her 2008 MTV VMAs performance was awful. I think Christina Aguilera was wearing a wig, she was overcompensating for not having a perfect body by wearing really tight black clothing and, worst of all, she was lip synching, which isn't her style.

All in all, she should've stayed home and watched the show with her family. Ugh! And the choreography... don't even get me started.



Check out the video of Christina Aguilera's performance at the 2008 MTV VMAs.

I agree totally. I'm not a huge fan at all, but that outfit was just hideous and flattered her not one bit. To be honest, if they hadn't said it was her, I could easily believe it was some "flash in the pan" artist.

I feel bad for Christina. she needs a new stylist. Who would let her out looking like that? (her performance outfit). I am sure her husband loves her and told her she looked great, but love is blind.

This look and performance resembles Britney Spear's TOXIC look a LOT. Almost an exact copy.

ok first off.. she wasnt lip synching the whole time.. Pay attention... i think your horribly wrong... was a good song.. pretty good dancing.. and so what if it was a wig.. LOTS of ppl wear them... would love to see someone like you get up there and do that... lol... thanks..

You are such a hater!!! I would love to see you try fill Christina Aguilera's shoes. You are just mad because you don't have that body. Give her a break... she just had a baby and she can rock it better than Britney. Why don't you post a picture of yourself and we'll see who the real mess is. Christina is versitle and alway coming up with new ideas. Someone in the music industry needs to do it. So get your butt off the computer chair and recognize that she keeps getting better and your just a hater.

compared to what she's done in the past, this performance was just sooooo boring. her costume and music reeks so much of lady gaga, old britney, goldfrapp, et al.
i don't dislike christina, i just think she COULD have done sooooo much better. it looked like she was just going thru the movements, it was not sexy, exciting, or passionate. the music is not bad, she is not ugly. it was just a bunch of wrong choices. maybe she needed some more time to rehearse?

oh please give me a break..shes going to have to suck up and take it like all the other stars do!!! britney spears had 2 kids in less then 2 years...and no one gave her a break for being a little bit bigger then she was in the past...and britney's body looks 100 times better then christina's honestly it doesnt even look like christina will get her body back period...I think her stomach is stretched out permanently!!!!! from the looks of it...

i hated the lip synching, but THIS is true xtina. i hated the retro ugly old styled christina. this is much more of what i like. and i don't see how it was a wig. the chick flew her hair around like crazy

Christy Kucheran said...

I thought she looked flawless, you guys remmeber jealousy is a sickness... I love you christina.. you looked hot, great performance!

this sounds like it was done by lady gaga.

We all know that Christina CAN sing live and SO WHAT if she was lip singing. She has a right to do that plus she looked great. You are SOOOOO low to compare Christina with Britney. The only reason Britney won all those awards is because there were bunch of low class people voting for her and they felt sorry for her. Christina is a Grammy award winner. You CAN NOT compare a grammy award winner with a low class artist like Britney.

here we go again, christina has just transformed herself again and surprised the world, and then there's you (whoever wrote this article) who is totally jealous and all that you can do is criticize someone who is waaaaayy much better and love than you. what's wrong with you? this might not be her BEST performance, but its Christina, she has proven herself in the past. What's wrong with the choreography? Your butt are even too big to wear that outfit. Sorry, you should take a look at yourself on the mirror.

You people are ridiculous.
I looooove love love Christina!! I'm a huge fan, i have been since 99.
This performance was horrible.
Not her style at all, everyone loves her because she can SING! She's so huge & famous because she can actually SING... she didn't sing on sunday nite.
she lip-synched that performance to focus on some shitteous choreo and it was a mistake.
I liked her outfit, and hair/makeup.. thought it was wicked cool, but her performance was not up to par for her.
I get that it was her first big one since the baby, and she wanted to make a scene. But it wasn't the way to go. She should've stucked to the Christina we all love... not a good show for her. End of story.

I understand her completely, being a fan I just do. Christina has always wanted to reinvent herself artistically and musically, and that is what she is doing. She could have not sung that song live because it would have changed the effect of the performance (seeing as she was full out dancing). If she was to sing that song live, the performance would have to change. Christina would have mimed for a reason, possibly because she really wanted to dance and express herself visually, and let people get to know what her new "genre" of music was through the "CD Version", as well as the look which is always important to her.
Yes, we know she has one of, if not the best voice in the world, but Christina also came into this business to entertain and I believe that this is what the vmas performance was all about. I was entertained in another way but yes I do prefer to hear her sing live cause she is genuinly better (but this is a new era of Christina so I am up for whatever, I just believe in her). As for the dress, I love it...I love her new look. But you know, I dont know why people are complaining when it is basically obvious she will be around when all the others have gone. This performance as made me feel more strongly towards her artistry. I think its funny, cause the more people complain the more I know and other die-hard fans know that Christina will be performing until she can not no longer.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I don't think there is any need for being "mean-spirited"; people should encourage talent and encourage any artist for giving it a go.

i just want to say... i agree that it was terrible.
but to be honest... i don't think it was actually her performing. did you notice how the camera never got a close up of her face?
i doubt christina aguilera would have actually performed so badly, or resort back to the old "stripped" Xtina. She went conservative for a reason: baby, hubby.
Look closer at the performance and see what you think. ;)

Steph said...

Christina's performance was wierd on so many levels. I honestly didn't even recognize her at all and he performance definitely wasn't as impressive as previous years. At Yuku they are talking about her perfomance too!

Dawn said...

I don't think her performance was terrible...but saying that, it wasn't her best either. Her stylist needs to be shot! The woman JUST had a friggin baby...give her a break. But her designer needed to take that into consideration. I think we would have loved to see the beautiful, curvy, 20's style Christina. The one who actually sings in her performances....and knocks em dead :)

Christina's performance was mediocre for someone of her stature. She was definitly lip syncing and her body was not looking all that great in that suit. As for the suit, Britney Spears did it in 2005 and looked amazing, and danced a billion times better. I love Christina and her amazing voice but she really should have stuck with the Genie in a Bottle remix, which I love a lot. The superb*tch song wasn't very good and I think she took a step down from the creativity her last album had. If we can criticize Britney for Gimme More at the '07 VMA's then we can criticize Christina for this performance. As for her hair and makeup I thought she looked amazing I love the platinum blonde hair, but overall the performance seemed like a bite off of the Toxic look.

I love Christina aguilera and alwayz have. I have everyone of her cds and i cnt wait for the new one. I think she is hot and she has a great voice. Her VMA performance was great. Everyone is just hatin! And everyone wants to talk about her weight... no one is perfect... and she just had a baby. I LOVE CHRISTINA AGUILERA!

Anonymous said...

uhm some of u say shes not lip synching all the time? lmao at u ...not one note is live bro ...she was out of breath by the the beginning of the second performance pay attention ...the genie in the bottle performance was great...about the the Britney resemblance ...it was done purposely. i think she wanted to show Britney she still had it...i do give christina pros for keeping it old school and following in Britney steps still.

I agree with everything you said. I am a huge fan and again I was taken back when she lipsynced the performance. She is such a great singer and does not have much experience lip syncing so she is not very good at faking it. I love the new look and feel of her music and look forward to a whole album with this feel. She is so versatile and great at everything she does. She looked great to me, and her dancing has never been that good as far back as I can remember!

those who were reading my comments..

it is true that xtina lip synch the song on VMA 08.. but did u guys know that she WOWS the VMA night than britney!!!!! ..

and for all of you guys who were critizing her... you ain't gonna bring her down!..

got these lyrics on her back to basics song "HERE TO STAY"

"well everybody got an opinion now.. don't think but it ain't no thing to me , it really don't make any difference now to me if YOU DON"T LIKE WHAT YOU SEE.. i paid no mind to the negative kind.. 'coz theres just no way to be.. so SAY WHAT YOU FEEL TIME WILL REVEAL BUT IN THE END I WILL BE HERE STILL"

The worst of the performance was Christina's lipsync-ing. If she's not ready yet to come back, then she should take some more time off. The music was typical, predictable pop and the choreography was lame and dated.

I FELT THAT SHE WAS TRIYING TO HARD TO BE LIKE BRITNEY SPEARS WHEN BRITNEY DOES HER PEFORMANCES. THAT CANT HAPPEN THERE IS ONLY ONE BRITNEY. SHE NEEDS TO BE HERSELF AND BE WHO SHE REALLY IS AN ARTIST WHO HAS A GREAT VOICE AND THATS IT.CHANGE IS GOOD BUT I STILL THINK SHE WAS TRIYING TO HARD.

Anonymous said...

Christina was definitely not lip synching. I liked what she did. Turning an old hit (Genie in a bottle) into a newer form was awesome! Seriously, who else in pop could pull it off like her? EXACTLY!! Don't be hating on Christina because she is still the best pop queen.

Anonymous said...

She did an amazing performance, bad comments come mainly from Britney-s fans. Amazing dancing, catchy song, and again she reinvented herself. For those that think she was copying that unknown lady, find that way in YouTube: Christina Aguilera DID NOT copy Lady Gaga at the VMA's 2008!! (proof)

Anonymous said...

It was horrible. It looked like one of Britney's performances (or video). I think overall CA is a talented artist, but she's always lacked a sense of original style and performance appeal that Brit has. Although her voice is amazing, she has to embrace the fact that Brit IS the performer.

Christina is HOT HOT HOT!!! Love her look, music and choreography!

Anonymous said...

HAHAHA. ok, first of all, britney spears wears a wig. uh hello, didn't you know britney shaved her head???? think that grew back right away magically ?
and second, britney wore a similar black suit way back when on her onyx tour and she looked FAT. christina actually looks GOOD. i DARE you to say that you would look just as good (or better) as christina if YOU just gave birth.

Toya said...

WTH? EVERYONE WHO IS DOWNING HER IS A HATER IN MY OPINION. SHE JUST SHOWED EVERYBODY THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO BE A "BRITNEY" AND FALL TO PIECES AFTER YOU HAVE A CHILD. I THINK HER PERFORMANCE WAS GOOD, AND THE SUPERHERO IDEA WAS ORIGINAL. WHO CARES IF SHE WEARS A WIG, SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE FROM BEYONCE TO BRITNEY. YOU CAN NOT COMPARE CHRISTINA TO BRITNEY SHE HAS SOMETHING BRITNEY WILL NEVER HAVE A STRONG, POWERFUL VOICE! PUT THE HATERADE DOWN AND CONGRAGULATE THIS WOMAN FOR LIVIN UP TO THE STEROTYPE, THAT BRITNEY CAVED TOO.

I think she luks amazing... n I can tell u one pace it definatly did flatter... her chest! obviousli u aint a man other wise that would be number one on the list LoL... luv the song... luv her... she needs not sing live hen we all know how well she does it anyways... n i will be the first one in line for her new album

NAY said...

DUDE SHE AINT BRITNEY ..STOP COMPARING THEM TO EACHOTHER..I LOVE BOTH OF THEM HONESTLY AND CHRISTINA'S LIPSYNCING WAS HORRIBLE THATS NOT LIKE HER..AND SHE DIDNT EVEN SAY A WORD AT THE VMA'S SHE JUS SANG THAT ONE SONG AND BOUNCED..WUTS UP WITH THAT??

Anonymous said...

First, LOVE her new song! Have always been a huge fan! Hated the outfit! The hair was o.k. But I agree she shouldn't have worn that. I know she just had a baby, but everyone should dress for their size. I'm one of her biggest fans, but I don't let that cloud my judgement. Don't think the performance was awful like other people r saying. But it wasn't her best either. Just couldn't get past the outfit! She should've gone with a skirt. Something to flatter the lower part of her better than those pants!Yuk! Being such a huge fan, I was in shock when I seen it. But LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her new song! I still love you Christina! As far as her voice, no other singer can come close!!!! Her voice is so beautiful!!

I think somebody pulled a "britney".....

This performance did suck and I do love Britney and Christina but what happens to these people when they have babies?
I mean granted I'm not a pop star and I don't have kids BUT if I were I'd either get my self together before I perform or stay at home. You have to understand it's these peoples JOB to be fit, and interesting. They have at least 8hrs a day to work on just that so no I don't have sympathy for them when they suck or become fat. But that's just my opinion.

I think people who wrote negative comments about Christina's preformance are actually pathetic and need to say that she doesnt have a perferct body because you feel bad about yourself. I think her preformace was amazing and good for her that she had a kid and can still kick ass on stage. Shes beautiful and gives empowerment to many young women. F everyone whos a hater, your probably ugly anyway

Anonymous said...

Wow, theres a lot of haters, id like to see the ones that talked smack about her to try and do what she did after having kids.

Rome said...

I don't know what you guys are talking about. That was clearly the best performance at the VMAs. She looked awesome and the dancing and the song was hot. I'm not a fan of hers by any means but I have to hand it to her. She rocked it.

Anonymous said...

I DONT AGREE AT ALL..WHAT ARE YOU GUYS THINKING??

YOU HUYS ARE JUST MAD CUZ WHEN YAH HAVE BABYS YAH BODY NOT GONNA
