What a difference a year can make! Christina Aguilera has been showing off her dramatic weight loss for months, but nothing is more telling than these before-and-after photos from this and last year’s American Music Awards.
In 2012, the singer was at her heaviest, and didn’t flatter her curvy body type at the awards show one bit. She performed in a skin-tight, black leotard with a far too-blunt hairstyle, and the purple, hip-hugging red carpet dress wasn’t any better.
This year, though, Xtina WOWed in a white dress with side cutouts and thigh-high leg slit on the red carpet. Her makeup was significantly more subtle and she kept up the softened look by wearinng a simple, black dress for a stripped-down performance during the show.
Christina is currently finishing up Season 5 as a judge on The Voice. With only eight contestants left, she has two team members still in the competition, Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee.
