Aguilera & Pitbull Groove at This Year’s American Music Awards

Shakira may have picked up the trophy for Favorite Latin Artist at this year’s American Music Awards… But it’s Christina Aguilera and Pitbull who brought the house down.

Christina Aguilera & Pitbull

The 31-year-old half-Ecuadorian singer, who released her seventh studio album, Lotus, on Tuesday, and 31-year-old rap superstar both performed crowd-pleasing sets and managed to make musical magic together in another instance.

During Sunday night’s show at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre, Aguilera – dressed in a daring one-piece black sequin-covered ensemble with a trailing skirt – performed a medley of songs from her new album: “Lotus Intro,” “Army of Me” and “Let There Be Love.” Aguilera’s performance included an army of dancers dressed in outrageous costumes.

Aguilera then joined Pitbull for his performance of their dancetastic collaboration “Feel This Moment.” Mr. Worldwide also brought the audience to their feet with “Don’t Stop the Party.”
