LISTEN: Christina Aguilera Is ‘The Real Thing’ for ‘Nashville’ Guest Spot

Ready or not, Christina Aguilera’s Nashville stint is upon us.

To kick off her multi-episode arc, which starts Wednesday (Apr. 15, 2015) on ABC, we’ve been blessed with a new Aguilera track called “The Real Thing.”

The 34-year-old artist is the latest big name to guest star on Nashville’s third season, following the footsteps of Alexa PenaVega and Derek Hough. Aguilera, who shared a set photo of her dark locks earlier this spring, will reportedly play pop superstar Jade St. John.

Last week, Aguilera shared a sneak peek from her first episode. (Hey, Oliver Hudson):

And over the weekend, ABC released a preview of Aguilera performing “The Real Thing” on an episode. What does the pink hair mean? And when will she sport those dark locks as promised?

Nashville airs Wednesdays on ABC at 10 p.m. Listen to “The Real Thing,” above.
