Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, The Voice


Um, R. Kelly who?

Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera's blowout performance of "Do What U Want" on The Voice finale (remember, with the matching lamé outfits?) can now live forever. The ARTPOP singer and Xtina kicked off the new year by releasing an official studio recording of their duet—which originally featured Gaga and R&B artist R. Kelly.

"Here's 'Do What U Want feat. Christina Aguilera' STUDIO Version. pink champagne, gold lame, hair, and fearlessness," Mother Monster tweeted Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, Aguilera posted, "Happy New Year! Loved performing with @ so we made a special version just in time for NYE! XoXtina ."

The dynamic duo (and rumored formerly feuding frenemies) first performed the single together on Dec. 17. "I was really excited because The Voice called and wanted me to perform on the finale and I obviously can't refuse," said Gaga, 27. "It's such an amazing show and I said, 'I'll do it, but I want to know if Christina will do it with me."

The 33-year-old powerhouse vocalist was flattered by the suggestion. "This is the first time we've ever met and I have to say, when I heard she wanted to collaborate I said, 'Of course! Lady Gaga!' I've been waiting to meet her. She's such an innovative artist and a risk taker and as a fellow female, I have so much respect for that."

"She's the most down to earth real person that I've ever met in this business. Female to female in this industry, it's really hard to find that kind of a person," Aguilera added. "I love you girl, and you deserve everything that you've earned."
