This could have gone so badly. On last night’s Tonight Show, host Jimmy Fallon busted out his “Musical Impression Generator” – which, we’re just going to say it, we think is rigged and not at all random – to have a little fun with his guest Christina Aguilera. The songstress was tasked with imitating a bunch of other female singers – see? rigged! – but the highlight of the entire segment (the entire show?) came when she was asked to pretend to be Britney Spears.

Yes. It happened. Christina Aguilera had to imitate Britney Spears on national television and, somehow, the world didn’t explode. But maybe it should have, because Aguilera’s impression of her 90s-era rival is so good, it almost sounds better than Spears herself.
