Watch: Christina Aguilera Assesses Mariah Carey & Britney Spears As Talent Show Judges

Published: Friday 27th Jul 2012 by Rashad


Judging by the looks of things, the scene of being a reality talent show judge is set to be very hot this season.  And with reports bombarding the rumor mill that R&B veteran Toni Braxton is set to join the scene, it looks to get even hotter!

With fans long knowing of ‘Dirrty’ diva Christina Aguilera‘s multiseason sit on ‘The Voice’ panel and Britney Spears’ forthcoming stay on ‘X Factor’ , the recent inclusion of multi-octave songbird Mariah Carey on the ‘American Idol’ bench has added much spice to the broth.

As many prepare for the diva showdown, Extra TV tapped Aguilera during a ‘Voice’ season 3 promo run to get her thoughts on Spears’ and Carey’s inclusion on the reality talent show judge lineup.

Never one to hold back, get into what Xtina shared with eXtra after the jump:

Naysayers who thought reality talent shows were on their last breaths may be proven wrong.  With this triangle of divadom set to dominate TV screens, it will be interesting to see who reigns victorious in this showdown. As fans may have grown used to Aguilera on NBC’s top rated talent show, will the new kids in town (Mariah & Britney) best the singer on the very format that’s put her back on the map?

Only time will tell.  You tell us…who will you watch?:

Mariah, Britney, or Xtina?

    Yes Christina Aguilera is the vocal truth!

    • GURL July 27, 2012

      BEyonce better get a gig cause things ain’t looking up as of late…

      • Entertain101 July 28, 2012

        I hope you know that Beyonce’s 4 album has sold more then Christina Aguilera Bionic, Britney Spears Femme Fatale and Mariah Carey’s Memoirs of A Imperfect Angel. Which is all of these womens last projects. I love all of them but numbers don’t lie. Look it up.

      • therealest July 28, 2012

        omg cud that presenter be any more annoying? i want to like her bc i know she had to be simons cowells beard to get where she is, but her raspy voice and the annoying way she introduces questions is grating.

  2. VINTAGE!! July 27, 2012

    I was expecting some kinda shade. I was pleasantly surprised!
    MARIAH all the way!!!

  3. Legendtina July 27, 2012

    The Voice already snatched life from both shows. I don’t think adding Britney or Mariah will make much difference to either show’s success. But since Mariah is coming back Idol will definitely be a good place to debut new music

  4. Haute Hottie July 27, 2012

    Damn this ones a hard one for sure, because I usually have hate for the other singers but Britney, Mariah, and Christina are all my favorites, so I’m gonna have my DVR set to record all of em.

  5. Suicide Blonde July 27, 2012

    I don’t watch tv shows, i don’t watch American Idol, The Voice or X-factor and i will not watch those shows now but i must say i’m curious about Britney and Billie Joe Armstrong, Christina is looking really good and Billie is so cute, i still think Britney is to iconic for that show, such a big mistake in her career.

    Back on topic:

    who will you watch?:________No tv talent shows.

    • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) July 27, 2012

      the same here , i don’t even have time to watch T.V and s*** , i prefer to get PAID and enjoy my life.

      but i will take britney anyday tho , not here for shades.

      • Rihanna navy July 27, 2012

        b**** you don’t even have a tv to begin with.

        How come you don’t have time to watch TV when you’re actually losing it posting comments and reading stupid articles on this blog?…

      • Jayla July 28, 2012

        lmao, but you’re on here posting comments lmao

  6. Legentina July 27, 2012

    I’m looking forward to seeing her perform this season. I hope her team is smart and uses the show to promote her new single

  7. Benron (F*** you h**) July 27, 2012

    Toni Braxton is joining f****** nothing. The world will end before we have 3 black people on a non BET show. 3 blacks on a show will scare the whites away. They will cast a bond white girl with blue eyes. Maybe Lady gaga is she gets contacts or Rita Ora after JAY-Z puts himself into deeper debt feeding that endless hole. But not Toni Braxtpm/

    • beyonce Manager July 27, 2012

      b**** calm your dumb ass down

    • bLaine kelley July 28, 2012

      it’s sad, but true. i really don’t see it happening =/

      …but who knows, idol does have a good track record of having 2 judges of color along side only one white man…so maybe going all the way with 3 wouldn’t be too outrageous?

    • Mobwife July 30, 2012

      Ppl are hating, but what you said rings somewhat true!

  8. MRDIVABITCH July 27, 2012

    She put the weight back on, but she looks nice and cute.
    Good response. She cannot stand Mariah, but she knows Mariah stans would flay her alive if she ever speaks against Mariah ever again.

    • aishaaguilerakeys July 27, 2012

      Still checking for Aguilera, I see.

      • MRDIVABITCH July 28, 2012

        Check the site. Now sit the f*** down. But not on my d***, your p**** is too dry.

      • aishaaguilerakeys July 28, 2012

        For someone who listens to opera, I expected you to be more polite. Whatever.

        Been busy with school project, daaaaahling 🙂 going for my third major now 😀 Also, been singing and making music, just keeping busy.

    • rich86 August 4, 2012

      u still trailing behind christina i see. It have nothing to do with what mariah fans can do christina becuz quite frankly they can do absolutely nothing.probably christina doesn`t want to feed into the drama bcuz she has better things to do like her new upcoming album and she just don`t want any unnecessary drama surrounding it.If she had said sth negative ,she gets flaxed for it but when she says absolutely nothing negative she`s afraid of mariah fans? like seriously? I guess drama queens like yourself just likes to feed into such and stir it up in your head. I i`m also a huge mariah fan and i think its a nice welcome,its about time some real singers with gr8 vocal ability join these shows.Christina and Mariah all the way!

  9. Absolved July 27, 2012

    “Diva showdown?” What?! Please explain to me how. These women aren’t even on the same show, nor do any of them serve in an executive role behind the scenes of their respective series. All they do is sit in a judges chair judging amateurs. So how in the f*** is this at all a “showdown?” These shows don’t even have anything to do with THEM, by and large.

    TGJ will pull any piece of stool out of its ass in an attempt to rile up dumb ass stans to compete in the comments.

    • Jak July 27, 2012

      Talent show competitions have become a ratings battle and are set to bring in large numbers of viewership as opposed to truly developing new talents so of course it’s a competition. They aren’t getting multi-million dollar deals for nothing. Which name will bring in the highest ratings?

      I’m thinking Mariah. This is truly the first time Idol has had a real vocalist on that judging panel to judge a vocal competition and she’s legendary and still a relevant force in today’s music industry amongst the Beyonce’s, Rhianna’s, Onika’s, and Katy’s.

      Britney is pretty high up there as well. Following all of the drama of her life people are just waiting to see her choke under pressure.

      • beyonce Manager July 27, 2012

        if beyonce join they will have views

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 28, 2012

        WHAT? In what world has Beyonce sold more than Mariah Carey? Hell she has barely sold the same amount of albums Brandy has in the USA. When she debuted album sales were still high but she still didn´t do it the Carey huge way. Take several seats…

  10. EyeheartMusik July 27, 2012

    Britney on X Factor all the way.. Yes Christina and Mariah have tons of fans and people who support them…
    But America; the world is obsessed with Britney.. No matter what she does, it will be watched.. People want to see her do good, or fail horribly..
    I think people will tune in to see if she can handle this, is she smart, is she funny, is she crazy??? How does she look?? Will contestants criticize HER voice? Will she argue? Will she perform???
    These are the questions we are waiting to be answered …
    I <3 Britney

      Best comment……………..Bravo.

      • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) July 27, 2012

        i agree.

    • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) July 27, 2012

      i love britney too. 3/4 of my childhood and teenage days were about her and seeing her grow. i had no option , she was a force and the world loved her so much.

      she’s just the most exciting and interesting one among them.

      • Suicide Blonde July 28, 2012

        3/4 of my childhood, you’re still a 1992 born baby.

    I will watch American idol for Mariah Carey. That is it.

  12. king z July 27, 2012

    @ absolved

    your comment has to be the smartest dumb comment i’ve ever read. you sound so intelligent yet further reading proved you to be less of so. how do these shows have NOTHING to do with them when umm…all people are talking about is their inclusions on the show. when j.lo was on idol and xtina on voice, all they talked about (at first) were which of the two divas would bring in top ratings.

    these talent shows are s*** and all that matters now are the people sitting on the table. so when three of the biggest pop stars iN HISTORY are sitting on the judging bench, the show IMMEDIATELY becomes about them. nobody cares about adam levine, randy, simon, l.a. reid, demi lovato, etc.

    tgj may love to start a stan war here or there (or everywhere LOL), but that doesn’t make the question any less valid

    Who find this man s***. Yall a damn shame i don’t know what white people see in certain men.

  16. nunu July 27, 2012

    Christina has a great voice But MARIAH all the way b******. for britney she’s a great entertainer but doesnt have the powerful voice like christina or mariah.

    MARIAH all the way <3

  17. Nichole July 27, 2012

    I’ve already seen Christina on The Voice, and she’s great. She’s not all prissy, and cutesy like J.Lo, and Paula. She gives real, constructive criticism.

    I’m hoping that once Mariah joins Idol, she takes it easy on the kids cause we already know them chirren are gonna be intimidated, and nervous once one of the iconix greatest vocalist of all time join the judging panel. Lawd knows them kids don’t need to be embarassing themselves in front of a real vocalist.

    Britney on X-Factor is going to be great, because she is the biggest and most successful icon of her generation and she had the X-Factor for years. Though she doesn’t do much now, she has a s*** load of experience under her belt, and massive star power. I think the general public will overall tune in to see her because she’s still so fascinating, and intriguing.

    Having Britney on X-Factor just might tie or top Idol’s ratings, even with Mariah on the show. But I’ll pass on The Voice this season cause I’m gonna be too consumed with watching Brit on X.

  18. Njabzz July 27, 2012

    The reason these two singers (mariah and christina) and the other one (britney_, were chosen to be judges was to up the ratings and its sad that they chose to go the reality show route instead of putting out new music

    • bLaine kelley July 28, 2012

      unfortunately reaLity tv competitions pay the bills; music doesn’t =/ (now a days)

    I might watch TV from time to time just to see Aguilera, but I honestly don’t care for these shows.

  21. aishaaguilerakeys July 27, 2012

    That interview looks older than the snapshot in the previous post about Aggie.

  22. 99heartbreaker99 July 27, 2012

    Mariah was actually asked to be on the First Season of the X Factor..but something happened. Anyway, I’m looking forward to all the shows..American Idol has been out for 10 yrs, kinda getting old & that may affect the ratings..but if all 3 of these shows were debuting for the 1st time at the same time in the EXACT same week..Mariah would DEFINITELY bring in more ratings. ESPECIALLY if this was 09, 08, 05 or even the NINTIES MARIAH.

  23. Gees July 28, 2012

    Ch…. White people don’t age well

  24. WATCH YO’ MOUFF (k.a. Lord) July 28, 2012

    With no doubt, LegendTina is the strongest pop vocalist of our genration.

  25. WATCH YO’ MOUFF (k.a. Lord) July 28, 2012

    “Dirrty” is one of the best videos of all time.

  26. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 28, 2012

    Of course I’m going to be watching ‘The Voice’. I prefer it to any other talent show there is! And not just because of Christina! It’s just an overall amazing show 😀

    My girl looks hot too, excluding the hair, and she was very relatable and sweet in this interview. So, the singer from Green Day is going to be her team’s advisor for this season? Quite exciting. I LOVED his shade!

  27. Jake July 28, 2012

    if i had a penny every time she says “you know” HAHAHAHA!

    i was just wondering if britney would pass through the audition stages is she auditioned for xfactor…

    • MC July 28, 2012

      probably not 🙂

      It’s the makeup, makes her look weird, like Joan Rivers.. yikes

  35. skintightjeans July 28, 2012

    That b**** tried HAAAAAAAAARD to control her shade throwing since she’s known to do that against both Mariah and Britney….2 women that far outshine her FLOP ass….and for God’s sake Xtina, go on weight watchers you chubby slag.

  36. LegendTina The Goddess Of Music July 28, 2012


    Xtina a flop? After 1 flop album ONLY, she has sold more albums than Gaga, Rihanna, Beyoncé so what you are saying is a very flop statement. I’m not throwing those artists under the bus but everyone is SO QUICK to downplay Christina Aguilera’s success.

    Mariah Carey has had a flop album & a flop movie and a flop lipsync perfomance and that does not make her a flop since she sold more records than everyone mentioned on this whole page including my Queen Xtina! Look at your life & compare it to hers and see what a flop is since she made it so far in this business where she gets to sit and judge people for millions while you at home sitting on the internet to judge so fully and only about 1 bad thing of LegendTina! Bye

    • skintightjeans July 28, 2012

      B**** shut the f*** up writing a long ass post to me about someone that doesn’t even know your ass. Damn I hate folks like you who write these long ass post to disagree with someone. Dumb f***.

    • MRDIVABITCH July 28, 2012

      How do you judge success in life? By who makes the most money? or by who is happier? Because I assure you, Christina is not a happy person, she herself has said she deals with chronic depression, has attempted suicide in the past, and still deals with PTS from her childhood abuse, etc. So think twice before calling anyone else a “flop” in life, being a real flop in life is being unhappy and unable to get over s*** that happened 20+ years ago.

      • LegendTina The Goddess Of Music July 28, 2012

        I’m talking about her carrer which the flop talked about her being a flop. So read properly before you come at me with what no one knows really what goes on in peoples personal lives! I did not shade anyone in what I said I was talking about a career and how ‘flop’ albums or that does not take away their legacy and all that.

      • irene46 July 28, 2012

        @ legendtina the goddess…

        i would say that christina is a success even in life. i’ve wondered how she is able to hold it together and appear as poised as she does with what seems like every media source relentlessly attacking her portraying her as a flop has been by just ignoring her.

        because of all the ruthless negativity and gaga rip-off bs bionic’s sales were s*** but was the second most illegally downloaded album in 2010.

        i don’t see how she could help but be depressed with what seems like so many attempting to destroy her. just the same she’s a ‘fighter’ and manages to keep it together under the circumstances. she’ll really get tested when she goes up against britney the media darling. they’ll do everything to rip her to sheds.

  37. JER July 28, 2012

    FAKE B**** gave nothing but soundbites

  38. Flopnet July 28, 2012

    Flopnet should join a reality show to boost her dead career. Oh wait, she is busy slapping kids. LOL

  39. LegendTina The Goddess Of Music July 28, 2012

    Christina Aguilera. After 1 flop album which only came after 10years of her career and staying power in the industry still gets paid 1 million at private gigs. Which she got to after her flop album at two & still gets paid 10 million to do the voice! If that’s a flop then I want to be 1. Since everyone on here commenting flop. What the f*** have you accomplished in your life or career?

    • irene46 July 29, 2012

      haters including the media think if they call her a flop enough times it will become true.

      her movie ‘burlesque’ was not a blockbuster but did fairly well. the sountrack has sold 1 – 1.5 million copies. her feature with maroon 5 was #1 on the bb hot 100 for 6 or 7weeks, in the top 3 for 10 weeks and the top 50 for 47 weeks. it’s one of the biggest selling singles in history and was nominated for a grammy.

      tighten up for the barrage of hate hitting the fan in order to break her when she puts out her new album. it’ll get worse when she goes up against the media’s ‘love’ britney on their competing tv shows. it’s no doubt gonna be nasty as it gets.

  40. Lolax July 28, 2012

    Britneyyy a living legend

    • MC July 28, 2012

      Mariah is also a legend, even bigger than Brittney

      • irene46 July 29, 2012

        mariah’s one of the few 100% legit talents and has big respect in the music industry. she’s not a studio manufactured product.

      • Scars July 29, 2012

        mariah was an amazing singer and performer but never better than Britney

      • MC July 29, 2012

        @Scars lol! Mariah is a better singer, sold more albums, has more #1 singles, has more top 10 singles, has more grammys, has been in the industry longer, has the longest running #1 single (“Sweet love” 16 weeks at #1), has garnered more respect in the industry, etc… do i need to state more….

        Brittney is a manufactured industry success, where Mariah is a diva in her own right and know as one of the best voices of all time right along with Whitney, Aretha, celien, etc…

  41. Matt July 29, 2012

    BRITNEY to answer your question.

    Adam’s a little b*tch. I like when Xtina get’s in his tail! 🙂
