Christina Aguilera Tried to Sing with a Bar Band and Was Denied: ‘He Was Not Going to Give Up His Mic’ [VIDEO]

Awkward!!!  Christina Aguilera was at a New Orleans Bar hanging out when she decided to ask the band playing if she could do a song with them…and was denied!

The supremely awkward moment between Aguilera and Bryant was captured on video

Xtina shared her side of the story on stage at her show the following night.

She told the crowd, “I was just like, ‘Let me just get up on stage and jam with this guy, maybe I’ll sing a song. ‘It’ll be fun.’ “

Things didn’t go as Aguilera planned, though. “He would not give me the mic!” she joked. “He was a little older… he was not feeling it! He was not going to give up his mic!”

Instead he asked her dance but Xtina wasn’t up for that, “I was like, ‘No, I just want to sing a song with you!’ ” Aguilera said. “I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll just save it for tomorrow then. It’s alright. It’s all good.’ He was like, ‘Don’t hurt yourself.’ I was like, ‘Okay, you’re not feeling me, it’s okay. I’m just going to be on my little merry way. Find somewhere else to go!’ ”

So what was he thinking?

“I didn’t recognize her,” he told WGNO-TV. “She had a cap over her head and over her eyes. She was in a jersey. She didn’t introduce herself to me, but she had very soft hands and that got my attention. I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said that she wanted to sing. I started playing the beginning riff of the song, ‘No, No, No,’ by Bob Marley, but then her bodyguard picked her up off the stage, and she left.”

He added, “I’m sorry Christina, I just didn’t recognize you! Come back Christina. You can sing anything you want with us!”
