Christina Aguilera has been a celebrity on some level for the better part of two decades now. She began as a performer on the Mickey Mouse Club when she was just 13 and by 2001 she was an absolute superstar.
With her powerhouse vocal stylings — on a par with great divas like Mariah Carey — Christina was already a dominant artist on the pop charts when her evolution into the hard-edged and smoking hot "Xtina" and accompanying song releases such as "Dirrty" culminated with her being named the Billboard Top Female Pop Act of 2003.
Over time Christina has shown a stunning ability to take pages from the books of other artists like Madonna and completely re-write them, forging her own charismatic and powerfully sexy presence.
As she's proven through her stint as a high-profile host on the hit TV vocal competition The Voice, she also knows how to stay dominant on the charts, her most recent tracks topping Billboard charts as recently as 2016.
