Christina Aguilera Celebrates 25 Years of 'The Bodyguard' with Soundtrack Medley

This was definitely the most-talked about moment of the night. 

November 20, 2017

There was a LOT of buzz around Christina Aguilera's tribute to Whitney Houston's soundtrack for The Bodyguard during last night's American Music Awards. The medley was performed to honor the film's 25th anniversary last night.

Christina opened the set a cappella with her rendition of “I Will Always Love You.” Sporting a black gown and slicked-back hair, Aguilera’s vocal gymnastic paid tribute to the Dolly Parton-penned classic. She transitioned into another ballad: “I Have Nothing,” followed by “I Run to You.”

At the performance’s climax, Aguilera sang opening bars to “I’m Every Woman” surrounded by a gospel choir.

“This is for every woman in the audience—on your feet for Whitney Houston!” Christina shouted. 

However, it was the moment when the camera cutaway to show P!nk in the audience that has a LOT of people talking today. The clip quickly went around online, and many viewers thought that P!nk was showing her distaste for Christina's performance:


P!nk took to Twitter to fire back at those who alleged she was throwing shade at Aguilera. In fact, she said that she was in "awe of Christina's talent."

For what it's worth, we tend to believe P!nk. A camera could catch any one of us making a "weird face" in the moment, right?
