Make way for a new queen in Vegas!!
Christina Aguilera kicked off her Las Vegas residency, The Xperience, at the Zappos Theater inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Friday night — and boy was it well received!!
For one, Demi Lovato attended the first show, and could not stop fangirling over the Genie In a Bottle singer.
The 26-year-old documented her entire evening on Instagram Story — she was flown into Sin City by Caesar’s Palace, screamed her face off during the performance, and even had a tender moment with Xtina backstage following the song and dance.
The Confident singer shared along with the (above) image:
“The f**king queen herself. A PERFECT, perfect show.. couldn’t believe it was opening night because it was so smooth, flawless and sounded incredible. I was entertained the entire time and was so bummed when it was over until I was reunited with this beauty. I’m so so happy I got to hug you @xtina, haven’t seen you in concert since I was 14 and I can’t believe how much life has changed since then. Honored to call you a friend 💗 keep it up queen. Oh and EVERYONE should go see #TheXperience at @phvegas!!!”
She even cried actual tears during Reflection:
And proved she’s a fangirl for LYFEE:
Besides Miz Lovato’s attendance, Christina also surprised audiences with a HUGE announcement during Saturday’s show — she’s working on a new Latin album!! SQUEE!
She confirmed with fans during her performance of Desnudate:
“Let’s not forget: the Latin album is coming!”
Check out some performance highlights from opening weekend (below)!
What A Girl Wants
Ain’t No Other Man
She shared before singing:
“This song has always been such a gigantic part of my history and my life, going from Mickey Mouse Club to the Mulan soundtrack, that’s what really kicked it off. This aligns with the message of tonight. We all wear a mask in some way — for our kids, for our jobs, for our families, for other people in general. When we go home, we get to take that mask off and look in the mirror and be who we really need to be at the end of a long day. Tonight I encourage you to take off your mask or put one on, feel free.”
Xtina has more shows to go, though we already see a residency extension in her future if the buzz keeps up. The over 90-minute spectacle is truly a feast of nostalgia and glam!
