Christina Aguilera 

Monday, July 31 at Sandstone Amphitheatre

When she materialized last summer, Christina Aguilera was roundly dismissed as an inferior, if intriguing, challenger to Britney Spears' throne. However, her dance numbers "Genie in a Bottle" and "What a Girl Wants" turned out to have legs, which (in conjunction with her upset nod in the Best New Artist category at the Grammys) solidified her stature as an equal-billing entertainer. Two weeks after Spears dazzled fans with snazzy costumes, constant motion, and a talented backing band, it's Aguilera's turn to showcase her skills at Sandstone. Although she lacks Spears' fashion sense and down-home-girl appeal, Aguilera's secret weapon is a booming bluesy voice. Unfortunately, Aguilera's debut disc matched her explosive vocals with pedestrian pop drivel, save for the singles, but in a live setting her vocals should overcome these forgettable backdrops. R&B radio favorites Destiny's Child will warm up the crowd with "No, No, No," "Bills, Bills, Bills," and other catchy choruses delivered in triplicate.
