Christina Aguilera took some heat for her pointed criticism of fellow former “Mickey Mouse Club” star Tony Lucca on “The Voice” last week, but JC Chasez (also a former Mouseketeer) says she was simply doing her job.
“I love her. She’s absolutely supposed to do her job and express her opinion, and that is definitely her opinion,” the former *NSYNC-er told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Wednesday’s Access Hollywood Live, when asked if Christina “broke the code” by being harsh on a former co-star. “I think Tony has represented himself magnificently on the show because I don’t really just look at Tony as a singer, and [Christina] is thinking in terms of maybe singing, how he sang the song.
“I’m looking at him as a performer,” he continued. “And I know the show is called, ‘The Voice,’ but I’m looking for the best performance and I think that he represented himself magnificently on the show so far.”
