The Voice's Team Christina can really rock!
Joined by their coach, Christina Aguilera, Raquel Castro, Beverly McClellan, Lily Elise and Frenchie Davis took the stage during Tuesday's live performance round to belt out "Lady Marmalade," which Aguilera covered in 2001 along with Lil Kim, Mya and Pink.
Aguilera relishes the opportunity to mentor the singers on NBC's freshman series, telling the new issue of Us Weekly she wishes there was a show like The Voice when she was getting her start in the business.
"I got my first break when I was 17 with 'Genie in a Bottle,' and it's been a whirlwind ever since. But after a while in the business, you tend to get a little jaded," says Aguilera, now 30. "So the best thing is when I look into my team members' eyes and to see them at the beginning of their journey, and they want it so badly. Through them, I'm sort of getting to experience the whole process over again."
And though she's mentoring a team of female contestants, Aguilera (mom to Max, 3) can't get enough of The Voice's testosterone-filled set and fellow coaches Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine.
"From day one, we saw how much chemistry was there. No one came in on a high horse….But I really am the only girl among a bunch of boys," the singer tells Us. "And it's fun, but sometimes I have to be the teacher, like, 'OK, boys, behave!' They act like they're in a locker room!"
