Christina Aguilera and Mya took fans back to the noughties with a performance of 'Lady Marmalade' at LA Pride
Christina Aguilera reunited with Mya to perform 'Lady Marmalade' at LA Pride.
The 41-year-old pop megastar put on a spectacular performance for her LGBTQ+ fans at State Historic Park on Saturday (11.06.22), and as anticipated, she hosted a mini-reunion with the 42-year-old star to perform their 2001 mega-hit from the 'Moulin Rouge!' soundtrack, which they recorded with Pink, Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliott.
After the performance, Christina told Mya: "Thank you so much for doing this.
"Mya, ladies and gentleman."
Meanwhile, Mya previously said she would love to see a drag queen rendition of 'Lady Marmalade'.
The 42-year-old singer was hoping for the group to reunite to mark the 20th anniversary of their cover last year.
She said in 2020: "Lots of fans are coming to all the ladies and saying, 'Is there going to be a reunion?' Of course, we have to listen to the fans. But we haven't had a full group conversation. We are constantly asked about it but I think it's time . . . It's as easy as a group chat."
She added: "I'd like to celebrate the LGBTQ community with drag queens.
"You could have RuPaul, Amanda Lepore, Ultra Nate, Bianca Del Rio and the King of Vogue Dashaun Wesley could do Missy Elliott's role. That would be amazing for me."
Mya had said at the time: "Next year's the 20th anniversary so I hope we have a reunion together.
"I'm sure we'll get together and do something and I'm hoping it'll be on stage or television, that'd be amazing."
However, she dashed hopes of herself and the gang re-releasing it with a modern twist because they would need a major budget.
She explained: "I'm not sure how that would work to get four, well five because Missy Elliott was involved as well, that's a lot of budget and we're in different times and so are the labels."
The popular track featured the famously suggestive French chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?", which translates to: "Do you want to sleep with me?"
It spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US, and was also a number one in the UK.
