Christina Aguilera will make her debut next week (April 15) on the ABC hit musical drama Nashville as the very realistically named Jade St. John, a pop star whose label is putting a damper on her dreams of releasing a country album. Her always-impressive vocal chops are on display in one of the first clips of her multi-episode arc on the show -- Xtina looks good back in the spotlight.

Aguilera also tweeted a clip of her role on the show, which hints at a possible backstory between her and Nashville's own Machiavelli Jeff Fordham.
