Christina Aguilera will soon be heading back into the studio to work on her next album, but in the meantime she appears to be warming up by channeling other singers’ voices. Aguilera stopped by Ellen today (May 16), and did her best impression of Rihanna, Adele and more.
Aguilera played “Heads Up” with Ellen. She had 60 seconds to do as many impressions of female singers as she could so Ellen could guess. With each correct guess, Aguilera moved on to another singer.
It only took Ellen one word, “Hello,” to guess Adele, and Aguilera didn’t even have to sing anything by Lady Gaga. Instead she exclaimed, “Born this way!” referencing the singer’s popular song. For Rihanna, Aguilera sang “Work,” but admitted afterward that she didn’t really know the words.
Like Ariana Grande on Saturday Night Live, Aguilera performed an impressive number of singers, nailing each one with her powerful vocals. Watch below:
