Christina Aguilera walked the red carpet and performed at the 40th Annual American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. The singer wore a Pamela Roland purple gown that left a bad taste in several critics' mouths.

VH1 called her look "far too tight" and slammed her for ladling on the make-up.

Liz Brown of The Examiner wrote, "What was a fashion disaster was the low-end yellow Cleopatra wig she slapped on for unknown reasons."

British publication the Mail Online wrote about the pop diva: "Christina, 31, sporting a very orange fake tan, squeezed her generous curves into a tight-fitting purple wrap-around dress, split to the thigh."

Fox News perused Twitter and found several negative tweets from AMA viewers including: "Did Christina Aguilera eat one of Willy Wonka's blueberries?"


But there were also some lovers among the haters, and a writer at called the singer's bodysuit stage costume "a tight, sexy black get up."
