Christina Aguilera Performs "Blank Page" at People's Choice Awards

by at . Comments

Christina Aguilera is a fighter.

The Voice coach got choked up during the rehearsals for the 2013 People's Choice Awards, but soldiered on through an emotional performance Wednesday.

Opting for a simple white blazer and black slacks instead of her usually more, um, eclectic wardrobe, Xtina performed "Blank Page" live for the first time. Watch:

The subject matter is heavy for Christina, 32.

"She was very emotional," an insider said. "The song is about making mistakes and realizing you can't go back but you can start over with a blank slate."

"Christina expresses herself through her songs and this one is particularly emotional ... this year is a new beginning for her and she's excited."

Another source reported that Aguilera was sobbing during rehearsals and even had the audience in tears while rehearsing the moving new song.

Fortunately, she came through with flying colors - and earned recognition.

Following the song, Josh Duhamel hopped onstage to present her with the "People's Voice" award, at which point the emotion was even more evident.

"Thank you for giving me this form of expression and letting me use my voice," she said. "It means so much. When I sing I believe it truly is the only time I can truly be myself."

"I find a home in music and I hope others can find a home in music as well."

She'll always have a home here on THG. Check out our gallery of Christina Aguilera photos, as well as our video section, for tons more Xtina.

I loved this moving and emotional performance by Aguilera last night. The amount of heartfelt energy she puts in her music is a big reason why I like Aguilera. I was also pleased to see her win the People’s Voice Award. This gave me and my DISH coworker a lot to talk about so I’m glad I watched. I wasn’t home last night when it aired so I recorded it on my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I like to set this up to record all primetime programming that comes on the four major networks. I loved not having to set up an individual timer for the People’s Choice Awards.
