Christina Aguilera Performs On ‘American Idol’ And Set For MTV Video Music Awards

Christina Aguilera, who was spotted out in Beverly Hills on May 18 in ripped jeans and what looks like a British flag under there, performed during American Idol’s finale last night. She sang a soulful “You Lost Me” off of Bionic, and it was the kind of emotional, true-to-Christina stuff she should stick to so she avoids the Lady Gaga comparison music.

The Idol contestants reminded the audience of Christina-past by first performing a medley of “Beautiful” and “Fighter” before an abrupt darkness took the stage and she stepped into the spotlight for “You Lost Me.”

The singer, who recently postponed her tour, will not be out of sight. She is also set to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on June 6. Do you think she’ll sing a soulful ballad or try out an over-the-top “Not Myself Tonight” performance?
