Christina Aguilera kicked off her highly-anticipated residency, The Xperience, in Las Vegas with a bang this weekend.
Aguilera told Billboard earlier this year that she hoped the show would give the “audience a chance take off whatever mask they might have to wear in their regular lives.”
The show reportedly delivered on its promises with “sex positive vibes” and plenty of “girl power.”
The 90-minute show features 6 acts and an encore, with Aguilera performing hits from her 2-decade career. Among the songs are “Your Body,” “Not Myself Tonight” and “Genie in a Bottle.”
“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,” she said of “Genie”. “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.”
To celebrate Pride Month, she also performed “Fighter, “Beautiful” and “Let There Be Love.”
The show will continue through June and will also feature September dates as well.
