Nashville Pics: Christina Aguilera Makes Her Splashy Music City Debut

Ladies? Move. Gentlemen? MoveChristina Aguilera — or, rather, Jade St. John — is about to take the stage on ABC’s Nashville.

The pop star/Voice coach makes her debut on ABC’s musical drama in the April 15 episode (10/9c), and we’ve got a sneek peek at some photos that are beautiful in every single way.

Aguilera will play a former love of Jeff’s (?!) who’s a hit recording artist. When Jade’s tour breezes through town, Jeff finds himself working closely with his ex. (And you just know Layla’s going to love that.)

The ep, “Nobody Knows But Me,” kicks off a multi-installment arc for Aguilera, who herself released the first photo from the experience in March.

    Who in the hell, outside a 1960s daytime soap opera, would be called Jade St. John?! What an awful, awful name for a character, not to mention a so-called hit recording artist.

    • Anna says:

      Ah yes, because Rayna James is such a common name. And Nashville isn’t soap-operish at all.

      • Eran says:

        I know we’re not in Six Feet Under territory here, dear. But credibility has to go into naming characters and well, since you bring up Rayna James then two words come to mind… Shania Twain.

    • Delirious says:

      Yup, because it’s clear to everyone that she’s completely talentless, and hasn’t had a hit (sales- or charts-wise) in her entire career.

  2. Ray says:

    Layla and Jeff are over. She’s finally realized he’s a tool and incapable of loving her.

  3. Wordsmith says:

    So, does this mean that, in the show’s continuity, there is no Christina Aguilera? Or does their Xtina look different and/or have an equally famous doppelganger?
    Plenty of real stars have already popped in as themselves, and others have been name-checked, like Taylor Swift. It’s just fun to ponder the specifics of this alternate universe.

    • Eric says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Then again, Nashville featured “Dancing with the Stars” and Derek Hough was cast as an actual character and not playing himself. So in the land of Nashville, DWTS doesn’t have their most notable and popular dance pro. LOL

    • MC says:

      There was also Kimberly Williams-Paisley, playing Peggy, whose real life husband Brad Paisley played himself multiple times.

  4. RUCookie says:

    Now that Lalya sent Jeff packing, he has no record label AND he brushed off the blackmail threat with hilarity that was surprising effective, Jeff needs something to do…

  5. J. says:

    She looks amazing! Can’t wait to see Christina on this show! I’ll be honest, I’m only tuning in for her. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up loving the show and I’ll go back and watch it all from the beginning.

  6. Love this show. Yes, it’s soap-operish. But the music is awesome and Hayden Panettiere, Connie Britton and Charles Esten bring it every week. Not super interested in most of the other the Stella sisters too (obviously)

  7. Marcie says:

    I’m still waiting for the “Who killed Jeff Fordham” storyline. Maybe Jade can get in line behind Teddy and Layla.

    • ToyCannon says:

      Me too. And a “Who Killed Jeff” storyline could also produce a much needed liver for a certain beloved guitarist.

  8. Leah says:

    Apparently she has purple hair instead of the brown in the first picture of her in character? Not better!
