Britney vs. Shakira: The Ultimate Face-Off, in GIFs
Shakira, Britney Spears
When Britney Spears graced The X Factor with her presence last fall, nothing could have prepared us for her confounding, hysterical and downright magical facial expressions. We thought these moments would go unrivaled in the world of reality TV GIFs for years to come.
We were wrong.
Shakira replaced original coach (and fashion icon) Christina Aguilera on The Voice's fourth season. While the Colombian native can't compete with Xtina's wardrobe, she can totally hold her own against Brit when it comes to bizarre facial expressions.
So which singer gives the best face? Check out each of their expressions below and decide for yourself.
