Work with Christina Aguilera

It was first announced that Gaga would perform on the fifth-season finale of The Voice on December 12, 2013, with the assumption that R. Kelly would accompany her during a performance of "Do What U Want" from her fourth studio album, ARTPOP. However, a television commercial aired on December 17, the evening of the finale, teased that "Christina joins Lady Gaga for one epic performance"; they sang "Do What U Want" as the final performance of the evening. This revised version of the song, featuring Christina Aguilera instead of R. Kelly was released on January 1, 2014.
