Making a surprise appearance on the red carpet for the season-four premiere screening at the TCL Chinese Theater in L.A., the “Your Body” singer, 32, turned heads in a little black-and-white dress that showed off a noticeably slimmer figure — not to mention Aguilera’s toned, sexy legs, accentuated by high Louboutin heels.

If only the same could be said about Christina Aguilera’s brutal pregame rendition of our national anthem. Instead of singing “O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming,” she repeated “What so proudly we watched at the twilight’s last gleaming.” Not a bad change, actually, but we usually like it the way Francis Scott Key wrote it in 1814. She also managed to put four syllables into the word “wave,” but still was “under” on the length of the song, clocking in at 1:55 when two minutes flat was the over/under. In other words, 115 seconds we can never get back. The Black Eyed Peas and guests took 12 minutes for their halftime show that was visually appealing if often off-key vocally. They quickly touched upon hits such as “I Got a Feeling,” “Boom Boom Pow,” and “Let’s Get it Started.” Fergie, the group’s sole female, was dressed in a black mini-skirt that brought back memories of “Xena: Warrior Princess.” Fergie looked great, although she never found a key she liked during “Sweet Child o’ Mine.” But the important thing is that there was no wardrobe malfunction. Guitarist Slash from Guns ‘N Roses tried to drown out Fergie as she searched for a key, and then Usher literally dropped in from the giant scoreboard above to do his hit “OMG.” One thousand dancers that glowed in Tronish outfits added to the futuristic stage show that made up in energy what it lacked in musical finesse. And, compared to recent halftime shows, they all looked so young. Lea Michele, one of the stars of “Glee,” did a solid if unspectacular “America the Beautiful” just before Aguilera did an unintentional mashup of the national anthem. So the Black Eyed Peas worked and brought back sexy and wholesome to the Super Bowl halftime, although it probably will be Aguilera who is remembered most.

“I am Ecuadorian but people felt so safe passing me off as a skinny, blue-eyed white girl. “The next time my label saw me, I was heavier, darker and full of piercings! Let me tell you, that wasn’t an easy pill for them to swallow.” Aguilera, 31, supposedly admitted she’d gained about 15 pounds during the “Stripped” tour, and her label was not happy. “They called this serious emergency meeting about how there was a lot of backlash about my weight,” she recalled. “Basically, they told me I would affect a lot of people if I gained weight – the production, musical directors.” Suzanne Plunkett/AP Christina Aguilera lost a drastic amount of weight after her label insisted she was jeopardizing her career. What is true, however, is that Aguilera has struggled with public scrutiny over her figure for years. And indeed, as recently as last fall, the talented singer was making more headlines for her weight gain than her musical prowess. Unflattering photos of Aguilera at a Michael Jackson tribute concert prompted Kelly Osbourne to make a few rather disparaging remarks about her figure. “Maybe she is just becoming the fat b—h she was born to be,” Osbourne said of Aguilera during a segment on E!’s Fashion Police. “I don’t know. She was a c–t to me.

He sold just 151,000 copies. By contrast, Javier Colon, who won season one of “The Voice,” sold 46,000 copies of his first post-”Voice” album called “Come Through for You” as of last month. Aguilera says it’s unrealistic to expect someone to turn into an overnight sensation and cites her own career as an example. “It’s not like everything needs to be like boom, boom, boom, then record deal, then No. 1 success. It doesn’t happen like that. It didn’t happen that way for me either. Like, for instance…my experience with `The Mickey Mouse Club’, the alumni from that show, you know, you have huge names Britney (Spears), Justin (Timberlake), Ryan Gosling, you know, all these names come from that show. But, you know, right after the show, did we rocket to success right after it? No. It takes time.” Of season four winner, Danielle Bradbery, “The Voice” host and producer Carson Daly argued that she has time on her side.
