The Story Behind Christina Aguilera's ACM Awards Performance with Rascal Flatts
The singer took the ACM Awards stage for the first time
While it was her first ACMs appearance but the The Voice coach, dressed in Roberto Cavalli and Topshop, looked at home.
Aguilera will perform the song again later this week from the Bluebird Cafe on ABC’s Nashville when she reprises her role as pop star Jade St. John.
“I really love the song. It speaks to long-lasting love, the roads it takes, the turns it makes and how it lasts forever,” she told PEOPLE earlier this week. “When I perform it, I really think of that older couple who have been through it all and who have stood the test of time with the changes that their relationship goes through.”
Rascal Flatts and Aguilera, 34, also performed the band’s hit, “Riot,” during their set at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Interestingly enough, after her performance at the ACM Awards, Aguilera will have appeared on three major networks in the space of one week – ABC’s Nashville, NBC’s The Voice and the ACMs on CBS.
