*Lady Gaga hit up the season finale of “The Voice” last night to belt her single “Do What U Want,” with “Voice” coach Christina Aguilera filling in for R. Kelly. (Watch after the jump.)
The pair, who were rumored to be at odds with each other, wore complimentary metallic gold outfits for the occasion. At one point in the performance, they sat next to each other on a sofa as Aguilera stroked the “Applause” singer’s leg and sipped on champagne.
Following “Do What U Want,” host Carson Daly interviewed the blondes about their collaboration.
“I was really excited because ‘The Voice’ called and said they wanted me to perform on the finale, and I obviously can’t refuse,” Gaga, 27, said. “Such an amazing show! And I said I want to know if Christina wants to do it with me!”
Aguilera, 33, shared the sentiment. “This is the first time we’ve ever met,” she revealed. “When I heard she wanted to collaborate, I said of course! She’s such an innovative artist and a risk taker. And as a fellow female, I have so much respect for that. And I just have to say guys, she’s the most down-to-earth real person I’ve met. So I love you girl, and you deserve everything you’ve earned.”
Aguilera was in a rumored feud with Gaga back in 2008, but during a September 2013 “Watch What Happens Live” appearance on Bravo, Gaga cleared up the so-called “fight.”
“I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera,” she said. “From the very beginning of when my career started there was all this controversy about the two of us, and I always felt that it was very unfair to her.”
Not to be outdone, however, was the real star of the night: winner Tessanne Chin.
The 28-year-old backup singer from Jamaica, proved throughout the season she had the talent to be front and center, culminating the previous night when her nuanced rendition of Whitney Houston’s hit “I Have Nothing” rendered her coach nearly speechless.
“You are just capable of anything and it blows me away,” Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine said Monday after her performance. “I know in my mind and heart you are the winner of this show.”
America agreed, and her victory earned her a recording contract, as well as a collaboration with Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, who penned a song for the winner.
