Watch: Christina Aguilera Tributes Troops On Leno With ‘Candyman’

Published: Friday 29th Nov 2013 by Sam

Christina Aguilera sure stays busy these days. Ironically busier than when her last album ‘Lotus’ was out. We digress…

The Pop powerhouse stopped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno this Thanksgiving for a special performance in honor of US military troops.

Backed by her own troop of dancers, Xtina delivered a titillating performance of 2007 hit ‘Candyman’, which resides on her Multi-Platinum LP ‘Back to Basics’.

Watch Aguilera in action after the jump…

Via Xtina Web:

Yes, yes, and yes!

It’s great to see the return of Christina, the performer. For, though recent albums have been solid, the last few years have robbed fans of the Xtina that could and would kill choreography…and…confidently. Needless to say, welcome back!

In other news, ‘Say Something’ – Aguilera’s critically hailed duet with Indie Pop outfit A Great Big World – is holding firm #6 on US iTunes.

    I really think if Christina were to go back to her Back to Basics style and sound, she’d be back on top. I feel like with B2B, Christina found her niche. Just admit it, even all of you haters, you love yourself some Baby Jane 😉

    Anywho, ever since she started bringing back her Baby Jane days, I have been left teary eyed because she looks so much better and happier.

    Christina is criminally underrated as a performer. She’s actually a great dancer but the Golden Voice outshines her performing talent. Candyman happens to be my favorite single off Back to Basics and my favorite video from her. This performance was incredible! She looks and sounds great here! Sadly I agree with Sam, she’s done a better job at promoting songs from other artist than her own during the Lotus era. It just further prove her heart wasn’t truly in that project.

    I was watching this last night on TV and it was a nice surprise to see her performing like the old days. She needs to come back with her next era with this body/personality and keep the screaming to a minimum and just sing! Let’s go Xtina!
