Christina Aguilera Celebrates Birthday on The Voice, Gives Blake Shelton Dead Stuffed Animal
Christina Aguilera is a giver, not a taker.
The Voice mentor, who turned 32 Tuesday Dec. 18, opted to gift fellow mentor Blake Shelton with an unusual present during the singing competition’s season finale - even though it was her own big day to shine.
During one of the commercial breaks, the "Your Body" singer hopped out of her chair to present the country singer with a gift box that turned out to be what looked like a stuffed chipmunk in a domed glass case.
After dropping the unusual gift back at Shelton's chair, Aguilera blew him a few of her signature air kisses before settling back into her seat.
Not that Aguilera didn't get her share of gifts and well wishes throughout the night as well.
Earlier in the evening, a group of earnest fans sang Aguilera "Happy Birthday," and show producer Mark Burnett made an appearance to present her with a cellophane-wrapped gift.
Even music legend Smokey Robinson, who took the stage for a duet with finalist Nicholas David, took a moment to blow Aguilera a few kisses and mouth "Happy Birthday" as well.
It was the perfect way for Aguilera to close out her time on the show - she and Green will be going on hiatus for the coming season, with Shakira and Usher stepping in to fill their mentor seats.
"Thank you #Fighters for the many sweet birthday messages today! Let There Be Love to you all! XoXtina," she tweeted to fans Tuesday.
Florida pop-rock singer Cassadee Pope was crowned the winner of season three, ahead of Minnesota soul man David and Scottish rocker Terry McDermott.
