Christina Vs. Mariah
Look out Christina, you're no longer the biggest voice on the judging panel! With a five-octave vocal range (Aguilera has four), supreme songbird Mariah Carey is hitting the small screen this week as a newly-minted judge on American Idol Carey's catty shenanigans with fellow judge Nicki Minaj has already hit headlines, let's see if her recent style decisions can make a scratch Aguilera's reality judge wardrobe!
Red Moment: Christina Aguilera kept it pretty safe when it came to wardrobe choices during her first season of The Voice. She opted for a simple strapless and belted red dress for a Voice press conference in 2011. But when it comes to style superpowers, red is Mariah Carey's trump card. Carey looked gorgeous in a red number at a London gala in 2011.
Curly Moment: Christina Aguilera started sassing up her style on her second season of The Voice, experimenting with her entire look, including her hair. But Mariah Carey has been rocking curls here and there since the 90s, but never a tiara. Does she need some headgear to compete with Xtina?
Sparkly White Moment: Another safe choice, Christina Aguilera went for another strapless mini-dress at The Voice finale viewing party in 2011, but glammed up with sequins. Mariah's take on white and sparkles stunned at the People's Choice Awards in 2010 with her floor-sweeping gown. A winner's statuette as an accessory doesn't hurt either!
Flying Moment: Christina Aguilera's third season as a reality judge ramped up the drama with prints, metals, wigs, and more, especially since Voice judges get plenty of chances to hit the stage themselves. Although this is a moment from the 2012 American Music Awards, Christina definitely knows how to work a flying scarf compared to Mariah!
Fan Moment: Mariah Carey was definitely stepping into Christina Aguilera's diva territory when she flashed a hand fan at the NFL Kickoff Concert in 2012. Getting ready for the judging panel?
Divalicious Moment: When given a chance to go all out, Christina Aguilera definitely comes out on top compared to freshman reality judge Mariah Carey! Carey's fairy dress on a swing in 2010 is about as wild as it gets for the singer, while Aguilera's Season 3 live show performance was a truly divalicious moment.
Bonus Round! Diva Pets Moment: Mariah had a Cee Lo moment by bringing her pup Jill E. Beans on stage for a song during her performance at the 2012 NFL Kick-Off Concert. Will Cee Lo's Purrfect the Cat have its own competition with reality cameos? You'll have to watch the new season of American Idol starting January 16 to find out!
