Kathie Lee and Hoda: Xtina was mean on 'The Voice'

If you missed "The Voice" last night, you missed Christina Aguilera getting a little… vocal, calling out Team Adam for choosing a song, Jay-Z's "99 Problems," that she found "derogatory" to women, and suggesting that it could offend his "beautiful wife and daughter." Later, she very pointedly praised her own dog in the fight, Chris Mann, for being "a real man" who respects women. (She said she was sick, though, so maybe it was all fever-talk.)

Hoda thought her cattiness may have counted against Team Xtina, and that the audience may have voted against them because she'd been "mean." (The speculation is that Christina has it in for Adam's singer, former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca, because he's been riding on a lot of endorsements from celebrity pals like Justin Timberlake.)

Regardless, Hoda thought there was no call for cattiness or feuds. "This should be about the voice," she insisted.

KLG added that freedom of expression was guaranteed by the Constitution, and that people should be able to have opinions and speak as they please on television shows. "The Voice" and the fourth hour would be pretty different if everybody kept her opinions to themselves ALL the time.

The ladies raised a collective eyebrow at the irony of Christina's sudden crusade for women's respect, given her "Dirrty" video, which they showed. "People in glass houses," said Kathie Lee. 

What do you think? Should Xtina zip it? Tell us in the comments and on our Facebook page.
