Here's everything we know about Christina Aguilera's top secret gig at the 3 Arena last night

Here are the deets.

BEFORE CHRISTINA AGUILERA took to the dance floor in Xico last night, the 37-year-old performed some of her best-known tracks at a top-secret gig in Dublin’s 3Arena.

And die-hard Irish fans damn near lost the run of themselves over it.

But what exactly happened? Did Irish fans really miss the memo? And who was actually lucky enough to get an audience with the Grammy Award-winner?


Before we all lose our reason over the rumours currently doing the rounds, let’s take a look at the evidence.

So without further ado, here’s everything we know about that Christina Aguilera visit.

The Instagram Post

Christina first announced her arrival on Irish soil with an Instagram upload captioned with a reference to her ‘Irish roots’.

So far, so standard. But… but… why was she here?

Proud of my 🇮🇪 roots

The lucky audience

It is understood that the gig was for the Prewett Insurance Group’s Allstate Circle of Champions Gala, and according to reports, those in the audience had no idea they were about to bear witness to a performance by the one and only Xtina.

We know, we know; our office parties are starting to sound particularly grim as well.

The tunes

As the evening progressed, footage of the singer performing in the 3Arena began circulating online.

The audience were treated to some classic Christina bangers including Genie in a Bottle, Aint No Other Man and Stronger.

They also got a rendition of A Great Big World’s Say Something.

But the pièce de résistance?

The singer’s children, Max and Summer, actually joined their mam on stage for Feel This Moment.

And we’re dead.

Oh, and is it just us or does this video make you want to keel over in envy?

We mean, would you just look at how chill they’re all being.

The Potential Cost

So, back in 2010, Christina reportedly netted a cool $1,000,000 for performing at a private Halloween party.

According to Glamour, the performance was just 60 minutes long which - in case you’re wondering – equates to $16,666 a minute.

We’ll let you do the math on this one.


The Afterparty

Christina and her crew headed to Baggot Street to dance to… ehm… Chrissie’s own song.

The singer and her squad filled the dance floor as Dirrty, one of the biggest tracks of 2002 played.

And we wouldn’t have it any other way, frankly. You do you, Chrissie.
