Christina Aguilera Tears Up You Lost Me

Christina Aguilera Tears Up 'You Lost Me' On 'American Idol' Finale

Christina Aguilera may have taken a few years off to raise her son, but the singer proved she's back in a big way on the "American Idol" finale Wednesday night (May 26).

The singer — who will perform at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on June 6 — tore into a stirring, soulful version of "You Lost Me," a track from her forthcoming Bionic LP, that proved, if there were any doubt, that she's got one of the best voices in the business.

Aguilera took the stage after this season's female contestants — Lacey Brown, Didi Benami, Katie Stevens, Siobhan Magnus and Crystal Bowersox — performed a medley of her hits "Beautiful" and "Fighter," emerging from below the stage to help put the finishing flourishes on the latter, then, as the stage went dark, stepping out into a spotlight for her solo.

Accompanied by somber strings and a piano, hair pulled back in her Bionic curls, and wearing a demure black ensemble, Aguilera started softly, singing about smoking guns, lost magic and the tragedy of a dying relationship, then picked up steam from there as the music swirled beneath her. The middle section of the song was smoky and solemn, Aguilera stretching the notes, then, eyes closed and right arm outstretched, sang for the rafters

    I NEVER SAW CHRISTINA PERFORM UNTIL I SAW HER PERFORM ON AMERICAN IDOL. HER PERFORMANCE OF “YOU LOST ME” WAS PERFECT!
    NOT ONLY WAS THE SONG GREAT, BUT HER EXTREME EMOTION, HAND/FACE GESTURES, AND VOICE MADE IT A FANTASTIC PACKAGE.

    She has the most incredible voice on the planet. There is no one no one that can sing like she can. I can't wait for the cd to come out i am getting mine right away. The song You Lost me can and will make you cry if you have ever been in love and lost someone. Just an incredible voice.

  • lourdes 05.28.2010

    The Most favorite and best voice ever. . . Chris, you do it so simply, but your voice made me always remerber your performance. .
    "You Lost Me" is a hard song, only a briliant can sing it. . The next "Beautiful" I think. .
    Good Job. . .
