Tony Lucca: I'm sorry for my role in 'The Voice' drama

With this being finale week on "The Voice," we figured the final live performance show would have its dramatic moments.

But some viewers may not have expected for Christina Aguilera's ongoing tiff with her fellow former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca to have reared its head once again on Monday's show.

Aguilera already accused Lucca of getting a leg-up on the competition thanks to his celebrity support, most notably from another former "Mickey Mouse Club" star, Justin Timberlake (which Lucca cheekily responded to with a rendition of Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time" - 'cause, you know, she's yet another "Mickey Mouse Club" alum.)

But this time it wasn't a Timberlake, Spears or even Aguilera song (although maybe he should've considered that option) that Lucca covered, but rather Jay-Z's "99 Problems."

Lucca spun the song into an acoustic rendition that left Aguilera a little displeased.


"I thought you sounded great, I mean you have a really cool voice," she began before critiquing, "Tonight you came here with your beautiful wife and daughter and family, and I just thought the lyrical connotation was a little derogatory toward women, but you know, all in all it was all in good fun."

As Lucca's on his team, judge/mentor Adam Levine tried to clear up the questionable lyrics, which in the original version say, "99 Problems but a b**** ain't one."

"Just to clarify, just so you all know, the intent behind the song - we talked about this for hours Tony and I - and the 'ain't one' is life getting at you, things bringing you down. We're not referring to women, we're referring to everything."

Aguilera interjected that the original song was a bit more cut and dry, pointing out that it specifically refers to "girl problems."

To which Levine retorted back, "Yeah, it's called a metaphor."

All was forgiven when Levine revealed he was wearing a "Team XTina" shirt underneath his button down, but maybe not forgotten. After one of her singers, Chris Mann, performed, Aguilera emphasized to the audience that he was "a real man, a real man who respects women."

Backstage, Lucca admitted to CNN that the tension has "sort of been like a dark cloud over the whole season and for the other contestants that has not been entirely fair. So I apologize for my role in it.”

That said, he is looking forward to the day when the drama's all in the past. "There’s an aspect to this whole gauntlet that I won’t miss," Lucca said. "It was a little disappointing to go from this reunion thing on air to going to getting some pushback so I will be happy I won’t have to deal with that anymore. ... I’m ready to move past it.”

But as for the other contestants, such as Jermaine Paul, “That whole thing is what it is, and I don’t know anything about it. If I was on that side of things I could probably give you a better answer. ... Whatever is going on over there, I don’t know. I’m happy for Tony because Tony did his thing, and I’m definitely happy for Chris.”

What did you think of the exchange between Christina, Adam and Tony on Monday? Who do you think will win tonight?

    Christina does more to disrespect women each day in the way she carries herself- her dress, her words etc. Respecting yourself means you don't go onto a family show during family watching time looking like you are wearing a bad bathing suit. Do you really need to show your breasts at all times? She has a right to her opinion and we have a right to ours. She should clean up her image before she goes dishing on someone about being derogatory to women. Tony is talented and did not deserve the harsh words she gave. She was clearly annoyed he was on the show. Well, her guy came in 4th. There you go Christina!

    After watching some of Cristina's early videos I started thinking if she has so much talent and a great voice why was she making trashy songs and videos? Why didn't she use her God given talent and use her voice to sell her music? She needs to put her breast away if she is really concerned about woman being respected. It is a family show after all. I am not a fan of the way she talks to the other judges either. She told Blake that he was not a vocalize. I say get rid of her.

    Christina needs to remember where she came from. Quite frankly I don't really think she is all that good myself and she should start dressing a little better to accomodate her size. This is a family show and as a parent i was mortified to see her almost falling out of her dress the other night. I think Tony should have been given a break. I am almost positive that Christina had some sort of support or her way up the ladder, if she didn't she certainly wouldn't have made it as far as she has. She should be ashamed of herself putting down a contestant like she did it front of their family. How would she have felt with her son sitting on her lap if someone put her down in front of him, like she did Tony. I think the VOICE should look at a new judge for this position next year. Her talent isn't all that it is cracked up to be. There are much better female singers out there than Christina, who could actually bring their team members past 4th place.

    Aquilera should stick to singing. Yes, she sings good, HOWEVER she has no obvious right to judge people on respecting women. She's divorced, she dresses trashy and is going to become a has been if she doesn't start doing what got her famous. Seeing the true Christina (talking, rather than singing) has now made me no longer a fan. Ninety nine problems & her arrogance is ONE. .

      I'm not an Anguilera fan but your comments are terrible- A WOMAN has the right to judge people on respecting WOMEN regardless of how much you dislike her or what she's done in the past. Being divorced, dressing in a way you don't like, and losing fame are not reasons to deny someone- woman or man- a right to express his or her opinion.

      Seriously, get your mind out of the "good ol' days" 1920's gutter. Does Simon Cowell put up with the same abuse when he makes negative comments?

      @no way – So she can judge others on respecting women but we can't judge her on how disrespectful she is to others? SHE started the battle with Tony and Adam. She continuously criticized Tony, way over the top criticism for weeks and he took it. Then he got her back in a fun way by singing "...Baby, One More Time" but she had to give backhanded compliments and slam him. Then he sang "How You Like Me Now" and she criticized that. Finally, he sang the Jay-Z song which, by the way, is about a K9 and how Jay-Z almost got busted by a drug sniffing dog and she decides to cry foul by saying that it was offensive to women. Really? Her assless chaps weren't offensive? That whole Dirrty phase wasn't? Yeah...

    After the overly long and drawn out 2 hour episodes then 1 hour follow-ups, I think NBC has un-necessarily dragged this whole thing out way too long to keep their audience. Cut some of the “fluff” and get on with the talent. As far as Christina’s drama, it’s over the top self proclaimed DIVA delusion. There is no argument that she has talent but to be reminded of it on each episode is too much. And the crown? Really? Come on, every other sentence out of her mouth was that was so good it reminds me of myself when I …….. This season pretty much did it in for me. I’m not a fan any longer. Too bad to because the concept is a good one but the drama and fluff killed it this season for me. Get rid of Christina and you might get back some of your audience.

      Your an idiot if you think that this drama didn't take it's toll on the voting this season. You don't have to have friends in the industry to have strong support from the mentors fans. I personally was witness to the verbage on the FB page for The Voice and Christina's drones of immature adolescense was clear. They verbally attacked anyone who jumped to the defense of Tony or even for that matter Juliete. She had PLENTY of fans jumping to HER defense NEVER claiming that Chris was the better singer. And I'm certain that NONE of them are running out to get the next Chris Mann CD. He's a wonderful opera singer but I can't see them banging their heads to it. It was clear from FB that Christina's fans were jumping on for voting for Chris to keep Christina in the mix, it unfortunately for Chris didn't have anything to do with him. Tony suffered as a result and so did Chris. PLENTY of people stated they were voting Juliette or Jermaine just to keep out of the drama because they were all tired of it. If you didn't care for Juliette's "screetch" as it was said, then Jermaine got the default. It's clear as day on the FB page. I take NOTHING away from Jermaine OR Juliette or even Chris but this drama TOTALLY played into this season and the rating might be good this season but not sure they will see the same in return next season. Christina should have been more professional as that is her role. As I stated on the FB page, you can be constructive rather than destructive. Tony was a wonderful contestant and Christina did NOTHING but berate every step he tried to take. She called him "one dimensional" which I find funny cause that's what Chris Mann is. When he tried to go outside the box, she made it more personal. When he tried to step even more outside the box cause let's face it in iTunes he won that battle and at the end of the day the winner of THE VOICE has to sell music to matter, he was blasted yet again. This all coming from the same woman who sported a dress so low cut (on the same eps) where her boobs were clearly visible and hanging on for dear life while singing a GOSPEL song, should we not bring up the "Stripped" days? A$$less chaps and all and she's the sayer of derrogatory? I think not! As much of a fan of Tony's as I am (and yes I am), Juliette should have won this show. Jermaine is a wonderful singer but not once did he come close to the top 10 on the itunes chart (rock is where The Voice registers in iTunes) whereas Juliette and Tony both were neck and next from 1-6 in Rock and 1-3 in the TOP 100 songs downloaded. So Christina, for what it's worth, sees her #1 at #4 and Tony at #3 but mark my words that he will outsale at least 2 of the 3 from that top 4.

      Tony's career in music didn't "take off" because he chose the route of acting co-staring in TWO Aaron Spelling sitcoms. When he decided to get back in to music as the main career he wrote and produced songs for JC Chasez amongst others and saw The Voice as a way to get hisself back out there in the spotlight to get some attention for his art.

      Maybe you should learn your FACTS before you yell at people.

      Tony chose a different path then Xtina, Britney and Justin etc. They left the MMC and went on to be successfully molded into pop stars by executives who told them what and how to sing, who manufactured them into the stars they are today. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but is something JT and Xtina have both spoke about in interviews. It wasn't until later in their careers that they began to get artistic liberties with their music.

      Tony on the other hand chose not to go into mainstream pop and chose the least travelled path of independent labels and busting his butt in a different way (cause the others worked dang hard to get where they are) so he could sing HIS songs HIS way. He admitted he didn't know how to find the balance between his musical integrity and breaking into the “business”.

      Jermaine picked another option that a lot of singers pick and that is to be a background vocalist until they finally get their "break". Jermaine and Tony have very different styles but are both amazing (so were the other finalist – actually there were very few contestants that weren't super talented and deserved to win). Any of the final 4 deserved to win, but fact is that "reality drama" can and will work against you sometimes and both Chris and Tony unfortunately were caught up in that and THAT probably worked against them both. It doesn't make Tony a cry baby for admitting that the drama probably hurt his chances – it makes him a realist.

      Tony was always a complete gentleman, never did he argue or debate with Christina. After her comments, he always said thank you, even after she continued to bash his talent stating he was one dimentional....hello, Chris Mann is one dimentional; however, they are all great artist with unique styles. You're an idiot.

      You're way one is saying that Christina caused Tony the win. Jermaine won, that's fine – so sit and settle down. It's about how Christina crossed the line when she told the other coach who to chose, whe she constantly makde negative comments toTony. She even tried to rip him because he danced well. It's about her behavior! A coach she was not! A critic she was not either because she made it personal. Simon does not make it personal. Whatever he believes and says is based on professionalism. Christina showed none.

      The winners are crowned based on their ability to get votes not on their ability to sing and entertain, as is the way of the industry. Jermain is very talented and received more votes, by the final rounds the advancement is popularity based. I found it interesting that Jermain played the celeb card and got no grief for it, but Tony was called out for it.

      Nobody argued that Tony was better than Jermaine. Nobody Believed Tony got dissed because of CA... Tony was not a cry baby, he was very correct about everything he said. His career didnt blow up because his musical ideas werent as mainstream as Britney, CA and JT... he never made a big deal about it... He made one comment and now he says he will move on... He may not have been the best singer... but he sold more on itunes than Jermaine did so whether he is worse than Jermaine is debatable. He didn't blame CA, he apologized to everyone for his involvement in the drama, simple. It was CA who decided to drag it on because of her own ego. I know he wasnt a better singer than Jermaine, but he has his merit for outselling him. He lost fair and square, but if anything the drama just gave him that extra but of exposure... Chris man was the most technically gifted singer but nobody voted for him... and I do believe this was largely because of Christinas behaviour... it wasnt Tony, or Christina who lost because of this... it was poor old Chris who lost his votes because his egotistical coach got involved in unnecessary drama.

    It was very unprofessional and a disgrace to the show the way Christina acted toward Tony from the very beginning. I felt bad for him. He was no different than Jermaine being a backup singer for Alicia Keys and she never said anything about him having a leg up or any uncalled for remarks. Tony did a great job and I do not believe he tried using his past to win this show. Good luck in all that you try to do Tony. As for Christina, I have lost all respect for her.

      First, please proofread your comments. Wow that was difficult. Second, Christina Aguilera has a very strong voice. No one is taking that away from her. But do you want to know why she will NEVER be in the same company and considered a legend as the ladies you named? Because she goes beyond a DIVA and has no self-respect. The clothes she wears are offensive to the eyes. The back fat pertruding from that disaster of a dress from her duet with Chris hurt literally. The thunderous thighs I can tolerate but not when half her butt is hanging out. And the breasts....?! Well I dont think I need to go further on those. As a heavier, self-respectful, pretty, confidant woman I will say I would NEVER wear those type of outfits. I am a mother of 2 little ones (1 who incidently loves Xtina) and I would not want my kids to think what she wears is acceptable. That is what WEIGHT has to do with it.

      Another one who needs to get their facts straight.

      Tony had a very loyal and fairly big fan base before he even got on the show. He had fans, like myself, who followed him down the independent label path and got treated to AMAZING songs for over 10 years. Street Teams who sold t-shirts and concerts in GREAT intimate venues around North America. Tony may not do vocal gymnastics like Christina (again nothing wrong with that), but he CAN sing, he CAN write GREAT songs, he CAN play at least 3 instruments – he IS a musician. And he HAS and will continue to make albums that people will buy.

    I thought the song was a stroke of genius on Tony and Adam's part, I really like the different twist they put on it. If it was indeed aimed at Christina she was within her rights to be snippy about it, but I thought it was in poor taste to mention the mans family. I think they both made mistakes, but I will not go so far as to insult Christina or say she needs to be off the show. I also will not go so far as to say Tony should not win the show.

    Best of luck to Tony, been a fan of his for years. Christina is nothing short of an egomaniac who thinks the world centers around herself – as someone who dresses with little respect for herself as a woman she really shouldn't call out anyone else for "disrespecting" women. Not all of her songs have been gigantic woman anthems – actually can't think of a single one aside from maybe "Fighter" that could even be considered that. What a tool.

    I agree with all the comments about Christina's clothes and displaying way more than most people want to see. I have felt all season that she has been a very sad example of a woman and very degrading. She is a very talented woman, she has misused her "power" with her rude comments about Tony.
    She is all about herself. I noticed that the other three coaches gave a lot of credit and praise to their singers and put the emphasis on them, but Christine always had to go up and be center stage and draw attention to herself. I felt sorry for her singers.

    I really like the Voice but don't know if my family and I will continue to watch if Christina is coming back next season. It is pitiful that she makes so much more than the other judges. Save yourselfs some money and replace Christina and also save a lot of viewers from turning away from your show. GET RID OF christina PLEASE!!!!

      Amen. Considering she didn't even recognize Tony at the start of the show, she has certainly shown that she is a class a beetch. She is way too chubby to be wearing the outfits she does, and her boobs hang way too low to be wearing the dresses she does. She definitely has no taste in clothes.

    Christina is crazy and annoying this season. she is hating on Tony for no reason and creating problems where there are none. I hope they get rid of her next year. she is soooo negative and high on herself that its a bit annoying to watch. Tony keep your head high and keep being the respectful gentlemen you are!

    I don't get the whole Tony was gracious, a gentleman, the bigger person yada yada. His last three songs (picked by Adam) had been aimed square at Christina and he agreed to do them. It takes two people to fight and I haven't seen anything displayed on his end where he tried to do anything to stop it but instead turned it into something bigger than it should have been. She complimented him several times with his past two songs. There is no way I would have let that third song go when America is watching and knows darn well the song is aimed at her.

    and really, America is no better with these comments. Christina said something you didn't like to Tony...and there are hundreds of posts bashing her for doing something everyone is doing themselves. Pots and Kettles, let it go. Christina, take the apology and give one back. Adam, quit making it a popularity contest and try to coach this time to showcase talent instead of trying to slap at someone who had enough balls to give an opinion that was pretty much accurate.

    • My opinion

      You seriously think he had any thought to aim songs at her? Grow up! The entire duration of this season has been Xtina moving the attention to herself. From jumping on stage to sing with people, to doing her rendition in her swivel chair, to talking about when she did that song, every conversation was somehow about her and just to make sure everyones thoughts and eyes were on her she chose to wear 9 times out of 10 no pants, skirt, dress and if we were lucky enough that she wasn't so tardy for the party that she forgot said pants she was barely covered. Some how Xtina was going to make everything about her. Fueling this drama every week kept her name in the papers and she loves it. People who condone that behavior from their idols will continue to give her attention. Xtina was one of my favorties as we are almost the same age, I defended her during the Britney/Xtina days but I grew up a long time ago and that high school behavior is not acceptable. If you think she's this great person and humble and kind, try asking The Wanted what they think again. Surprised anyone would actually (in the entertainment business) admit that a well known artist is a b!tch but she CLEARLY opted to throw her weight (no puns intended) around. Don't we remember WAY back when they did that whole Divas concert. The square down between her and Mariah? too much ego in a small space. She's not the cute teen in Genie in a bottle (which by lyrics has a dirty meaning itself) and the Mulan songtrack. She got DIIIIRTY and STRIPPED and to me, I won't waste another dime on anything to better her career. Someone needs a taste of humble pie.

    I hope that The Voice will replace Ms. Aguilera next season. I am not watching her another season. She is far too self-centered, rude, and shallow for me. I don't care for the way she dresses and, until last night, I thought that was her business. But when she blabbered about demeaning women, her hypocrisy was quite apparent. Further, I do not see her criticizing other contestants like she does Tony Lucca. I say her tank the last season with a terrific contestant because she has to be the star. I so wish for a woman judge who is strong, smart, classy, and kick-ass. This is not Ms. Aguilera.

      Congratulations to all the contestants!!! Tony Lucca is there obviously because he has talent. Everyone is different and all four have wonderful voices. This is coming down to taste, I don't like Ophra music therefore I won't listen to Chris Mann etc etc etc..... But is just sad and disappointing that Christina Aguilera have to look and act so trashy in front of a tv show to get some attention. I believe Christina hates Tony because he's a real man, that sticks up for his family and is simply happy, something that Christina hasn't been able to accomplish despite her fame.

    Tony has no reason to apologize. He's one of the sweetest men I've ever had the pleasure to meet & a rare talent. Christina should be the one apologizing: profusely and often. He hasn't deserved any of her barbs. Especially when she, herself, includes the "b-word" in her song "Vanity," as well as other songs of hers. She's a hypocritical try-hard.

If she wants to stand up for women I wish she'd do it with her boobs covered! A role model she is NOT! I love The Voice, but I'm not sure I can watch next season if she's still there.

    I think it is kinda sad and embarassing that instead of using this opprotunity to highlight your talent, you use this amazing chance to get back at someone for "something" that happened in the past. Regardless of whatever is between Tony and Christina, he has wasted the last however many weeks trying to prove "something" to her. Forget her. In my mind, he wasted his time on this show and set a very, very poor example for his son.

      I honestly don't think it's between Tony and Christina. I think it's more Christina and Adam. Also, I don't think he set a poor example. Christina took cheap, personal shots at him that had nothing to do with his performance ("start a Britney cover band"). Why would Tony or Adam just want to take that lying down? That's his credibility and livelihood on the line (implying he's only there because of his celebrity support, which MANY other finalists have had)!

      I'm glad that if he loses, he went down fighting. I was not offended in the least because 1) everyone who knows the song, knows 99 problems is NOT about a girl and 2) he wasn't nearly as tacky and classless as Christina has been the entire season.

She really comes off as almost threatened by Tony, which I don't get. She has a fabulous voice, she's always talking about embracing differences. She is really coming off UNPROFFESSIONAL here & I would like to think the producers would've had a little chat with her & told her to keep personal feelings under wraps.

    Xtina may have pushed her contestant out of the running. People vote for a variety of reasons. One is that you vote for who you like and that is usually associated with the style of music. Others (who may enjoy music broadly) vote for other reasons such as how a person is perceived or if they are deserving of their vote. It is not necessarily the most talented contestant who wins. Xtina has stirred such a negative vibe about a seemingly gentle and kind person that he may win just on his ability to consume her venomous darts. He will definitely get some sympathy vote that would not have occured but for Xtina's big mouth. Can we please vote on the coaches for next year?

      You should really understand the rules of the shows your watching. If you read the rules of the contest clearly stated on The Voice website you'll see that the votes from audience and judges determine the final 4. You think that Adam has no right giving his opinion, you know being in the business and all I'm pretty sure he's qualified to pick. His decision was made to sound like because they are friendly now, yes that's a good thing to be comfortable and friendly with your mentor otherwise you can't get the creative juice flowing. Adam and Tony clearly stated that they got to the point where they were learning from each other. Adam's pick of Tony over Katrina was because he felt he could do more as a mentor in continuing the journey with Tony than Katrina WHO if you recall was saved herself by Adam when it was all up to the audience. He saw her growing and wanted to give her a chance to continue to grow but the collaboration between he and Tony on "How you like me now" and "Baby One More Time" was a turning point for the two of them and as Adam the judge and mentor is suppose to do, he pulled for the one he felt he could continue to be creative with. Suddenly everyone is pi$$ed that Katrina was let go, audience please if it was up to you she would have been gone the week prior. Tony and Juliette were always neck and neck with the top spots on itunes from the VERY beginning of the show. These results are those you can see, tangable, do you really think any judge in their right mind is going to let go of a goldmine? Tony brought in the people who were BUYING the music which face it at the end of the day really is the winner of the voice. So Juliette and Tony, in my honest opinion, were the only 2 real contenders for that reason alone. Anyone can get a community to vote 10 times 10 different ways but you put your money where your mouth is and you were NOT voting for Jermaine, Chris or Katrina with the money.

I probably won't watch the show next season if she's on it. It not funny watching another human being be mean to someone else. If she's trying to be the Simon Cowell of The Voice, it's not working.

    Although I do believe Christina's behavior was not the best last night, all this attention is benefiting Tony, and both him and Adam know this. When Christina stated he was "one dimensional", she was telling the truth and giving her opinion. Tony has a nice voice and good looks, but not as fun as some of the other contestants. Many critics have stated that one of his best performance was of one more time, this wouldn't have happened if Christina didn't say what she did. Also, that song was chosen by Adam as a dig to Christina in response to her much valid comment. All this controversy has only helped Tony, and last night's song choice was also a dig towards Christina. Instead, Tony should've used his last performance to showcase his talent, stay away from the controversy, and prove his critics wrong. Both parties are at fault.

      Tony's performance might have been a dig at Christina, but it was also an awesome performance. I had never heard the song before, but it was definitely entertaining. I thought he deserved to win, but Jesse was my second choice. The one that I was surprised that she was still there week after week was Julia. Chris is an amazing talent and I loved many of the songs he sang, but last night wasn't his best night in my opinion.

      All in all, it was a very entertaining season and whether Christina is on there or not, I'll watch next year; but I do think the show would be better if she would tone her dress down a bit. I like the diversity of the judges though. CeeLo is awesome in that he respects good music, regardless of the genre and you know he shows respects to the performers. I enjoyed Adam and Blake's comments, because they seemed to say things I thought..but when Christina and CeeLo talked about the elements of the songs I learned more about music. Their thoughts moved me beyond my own way of thinking and I like that. I do think that Christina did hurt her credibility when she seemed to unfairly pick on Tony though. Why put your own credibility on the line for some kind of vendetta, that I don't understand.

If she wants to dress skimpy that is her choice but, she shouldn't do it in front of her son and then bash someone else for their public display in front of their family.

      Actually Elena, as has been custom for these reality shows they always conveniently forget to include the footage in rehearsals of the performer on the show giving credit to the original artist who arranged it that way. Happened the first time with BOMT and again this time. Adam even made a statement that it was said on camera to give credit (it was also in the credits of the show BTW) and producers decided to cut that in the final. It also happened to Chris Daughtry on Idol. The cut footage showed him giving credit and producers got rid of it.

    Christina can sing, she can entertain, but she is not the be-all, end-all in this genre, altho to hear her tell it, she has more soul than Ci-L0, and more experience that all of them. If she thinks that is true, then it would serve her well to be more gracious to those she considers less talented, including all of the contestants. Honest criticism can be constructive and appreciated, but petty "picking" demeans the overall tone of the show.

    The coaches all have a chance to say negative things and it is often in hopes to sway a few votes toward their own team. The coaches fully expect and sometimes have props (Levine revealed a shirt he was wearing directed at Christina.) and are often prepared to retaliate. I do sense Christina to be upset that Tony Luca is on a show she is judging. He has great talent and I definitely want to hear more of his music. I loved all of his performances. But it is a game.... only one of them with win. They all win though with the exposure they get simply from being on the show. so Congrats to all the teams last standing performers!

    Last season I didn't mind Christina but this season she made herself look like what the song was referring to.Maybe that's why she was so offended by it. She definitely has some kind of problem with Tony Lucca. We don't see her calling up Jay Z telling him his song is offending. As for her duet with Chris he is a classy guy and that is a classy song but she sure didn't look classy with her boobs half hanging out.

    Christina is full of herself. This is my first season watching the voice and she gets on my nerves. She is always trying to take the spotlight from the contestants and putting it on herself. She is constantly running up on the stage with her butt showing. Always singing after a contestant have performed, trying to upstage them. She is a needy, attention seeking woman. I'm offended by her attire, if she wants the truth to be told. The voice should find someone to replace her next season. I cringe every time she opens her mouth. SHUT UP ALREADY AND COVER UP YOURSELF!

    Christina was rude and so pathetic last night. She took a dig at someone who deserves to be there just like all the other contestants. She is just mad because she probably had a thing for Tony years ago and he never gave her the time of day and now that he is back she is trying to get revenge. One thing Christina is right about he does have a beautiful family and wife and she is just jealous she dont have that! I hope that Tony does outshine her contestant but I have to say I love Jermaine...i hope it is Tony and Jermaine fighting it out tonight!

    99 Problem is derogatory towards women? Why don't you go put your assless chaps back, grease yourself up like a pig, and do some classy pelvic thrusts.

    Christina Aguilera?? Ya, she's the poster child for women's rights.

    Rock on Tony Lucca. You killed it last night!

    Christina has an amazing voice but she's clearly lost her way. The way she has treated Tony this season and her fellow judges (both this season and last season) is way out of line. She is the last one that should be talking about being derogatory toward women. What message does she think her appearance sends to little girls? It doesn't matter how talented you are, you have to dress like a tramp and flash your chest to make your dreams happen? How does she think her son is going to feel about his mom parading around like a wannabe playboy bunny. She's the one that should be embarrassed to have her family on the set of the Voice. Get a clue Christina.

    Hmm... I dunno a part of me thinks this is manipulation on her part to skew the votes in his favor. After all they were friends/mouseketeers together. I think it's all an act to get him the win. I don't honestly think she cares if her "team" wins or not. Or it could be producers telling her to lay it on thick so people don't assume he wins because of his past with the Mickey Mouse Club. either way the "beef' is all fabricated. Nothing in hollywood is real!

      Well said! I agree that maybe it's a ploy to skew the votes in Tony's favor. Also, there could be something that happened backstage on the show between the two of them that none of us know about. Either way, I think Christina was a little harsh toward Tony, but I also respect her immensely. She is unafraid to say what's really on her mind and she is nothing but honest. I would love to have more of her courage and be able to let hurtful things roll off my shoulders like she seems to do. She makes songs about how she will never hide what she really feels and that how it would be easier for people to swallow if she just sat there and smiled, but that's not going to happen. She is true to her words and I believe the industry has hardened her a great deal, which is the bitter and ugly side to fame. If you think about it, it's perfectly acceptable for men to be rude, derogatory, "tough" and show off, but when a woman does it, they jump all over her. It's a double-standard that it looks like she's constantly trying to fight. I don't think there's anything wrong with the way she dresses. Little girls need an example of what's age-appropriate and inappropriate. Not everyone's taste has to be the same. Another positive thing to her credit: Christina is a little bit thicker these days and she wears it really well, which I thing is an EXCELLENT example to young women. You don't have to be impossibly skinny to be and feel beautiful. She's perfect just the way she is. Just because she happens to be very direct, tough and brutally honest, doesn't mean she should be slammed for it. She should be commended for not selling out (or so we hope that's not what's happening). One thing though, it WAS really rude of her to be texting while Adam and Tony were talking and performing. No excuse for that.

    CHRISTINA: Tony is not the only one with connections to other former MMC members n other artists. Jermaine sang back up w Alicia Keys and you arent picking on him. Stop it and be a professional. ADAM: I had never heard the song 99 Problems so I looked up the lyrics and didn't think it was a good music choice AT ALL! This IS a family show. You and Christina need to stop acting like children.

    A comment was already posted about how Christina should crush the dream, and I completely agree. Her behavior throughout the season towards Tony Lucca has been out of line. However her pettiness in last nights episode was outrageous. I think Christina just skewed the voting big time - I have a big feeling those people who were undecided as to which of the four great talents should win, will be voting for Tony Lucca to show their support for him despite Christina's rudeness.

    Tonys song should have said I got 99 problems but THIS b... aint one while pointing at Christina, She needs to find a talent that knows how to shop so they can teach her how to dress. If she is on this thing next season, this will be my last season watching.

    Tony you have proved you are a gentleman over and over by just smiling and letting Xtina prove she is a bitter has been who will always be known for being jealous and afraid of loosing so she needs to tear someone down. She is afraid you are going to the top and leaving her behind. You and Adam were GREAT together. I can't wait to buy your music. You are blessed with a beautiful family also so just let Xtina eat your dust. Also don't apologize for her stupidity you have done nothing wrong. Best of luck from Texas

    Christina acted very unprofessional and downright childish towards Tony Lucca last night. First was the comment about his song choice, then she left her seat during Tony and Adam's performance and finally she was tweeting or texting during his last song. She is a hired "professional" there to do a job and she is clearly treating him differently than all of the other singers. It's uncomfortable to those of us watching and I will probably not watch the show next year unless they replace Christina.

      Christina made a very honest comment about him being one dimensional. Which was FOUR WEEKS AGO! Him and Adam are the ones week after week fueling the fire. All she is doing is responding to it. That song was a deliberate slame to Christina and I don't care who are, what you did, no one deserves to be mistreated. Christina at least tells him to his face her opinion, Tony is the one being childish and going to the media and behind her back. If he were a TRUE man he'd go to her face to face and hash out whatever beef there may or may not be.

    And could someone PLEASE tell Christina to buy herself a mirror. I know she has enough money. But she needs to look into one before parading on stage in these ridiculous outfits that make her look even fatter than she is. Obviously, she is not the same size as she used to be, so please dress appropriately. Nobody wants to see that.

    After watching how Christina treated Tony, I am absolutely disgusted. Why does she think she is so much better, and, I mean really, how can she talk about the lyrics to that song being degrading to women – they way she acts in her videos and the way she dresses is, in my opinion, degrading (and embarassing) to everyone. I was once a fan of her voice, but after seeing how full of herself she is, I can't get past her behavior to a fellow singer. Tony is just trying to make it, just like she did once. I mean what did Tony ever do to her to cause her to act like that to him, especially since they have a pretty interesting childhood in common. Christina, grow up and maybe see that you are not all you think you are.

    I just think Christina has lost what it is all about. I really don't want to watch the show next year if she continues to get to be a spoiled little brat! That is what she is. Please Christina you can judge but fairly not because of something you have against someone. You have a child now show them how to treat people with respect.. I know nothing about you but I do know that you cannot get respect if you don't give it. With all that you have, life is way to short and you are way to young to be this bitter! The one thing you did was help Tony. If people where on the fence you surely brought them to the Tony side

    My opinion of Christina has changed after watching the Voice. I didn't know how full of herself she is. She has also been quite mean to several contestants most notably Tony. I literally feel uncomfortable for Tony ... it's hard to watch her being so nasty to him. Shame on Christina for trying to crush a dream ... this should have been a wonderful experience for him. I don't think the show should allow the abuse.

    Cristina is way out of bounds, I feel. Irregardless of what she feels about Tony, she has slammed him one way or another each time he has performed which I feel is a misuse of her role and authority as judge. I feel that Tony has "taken" it very politely. It makes you wonder what she is really like. She is always talking about professionalism but in regards to this contentant has not been professional.

      Be quiet should really take their advise.
      Irregardless in most dictionaries list it as "nonstandard" or a word which has become socially acceptable. Although not technically in the dictionary as a "word" is a socially acceptable word therefore your adorable little jump in there is really unnecessary.

    Just an FYI for for Miss. Xtina and anyone else....If you watch VH1 's behind the music of Jay-z he reffers to that song and it's intention. He meant it in the real meaning of the word. "Female Dog" . He wrote it after a traffic stop where the officer was trying to search him with a K9 unit. As for the degradation of women comment she made ...her get dirty video and others are not very empowering to women either.

    Tony Lucca is boring actually. I think if it wasn't for Christina Aguilera's "one dimensional" comment, he would've been stuck in the same place because his coach Adam Levine wasn't smart enough to realize that Tony was stuck in one style. But to push it further with my statement, I find Adam Levine to be "one dimensional" in a way as well which is probably why he didn't notice. He wants Lucca to stick around because, they may have a connection, but he sees a little bit of his style in him.

    I still don't know why Christina is hating. Unless she is doing it to make us forget she let go of a man who could have won it. Because if so we have not. I remember Jesse. And he was good. I am not hating on her for what she did but she needs to stop being the nasty judge who pays people in the back to tell her she is loved.

      Jesse was an amazing singer however, he lacked stage presence and versatility. He can sing the hell out of a gospel and R&B song but he just didn't push himself out of his comfort zone, in my opinion.
