Christina Aguilera BAILS On Inducting Donna Summer Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame! Kelly Rowland Saves The Day!

Close call!

Last night, the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, held in El Lay, inducted the likes of Donna Summer, Quincy Jones, Randy Newman, Rush, Albert King, Public Enemy, Heart and Lou Adler!

And while there was a myriad of star-studded guest speakers and performers for the special occasion, including Oprah Winfrey, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, and John Mayer, one expected performer was NOTICEABLY missing in action:

Christina Aguilera!

The diva, who was expected to join Hudson by posthumously honoring Summers' magnificent career with a performance of Bad Girls and Last Dance, reportedly canceled at the last minute. And her absence is now being said to have been due to a nasty upper respiratory infection and a very high fever!

Thankfully for everyone involved, the lovely Kelly Rowland graciously stepped up to the plate and took over the induction duties, singing a few notes of the legend's iconic Love To Love You Baby, and commenting on it:

"Her words remind us of exactly who we are…I'm pretty sure me and a lot of y'all in here were made to that record."

LOLz! AH-Mazing — and so, SO true, gurl!

You may not have been the first choice for the job, but you obviously really stepped up to the plate here and did Donna proud!

We just know that she would have been so appreciative of your honoring her in such a sweet, meaningful and sassy fashion!

Such a shame the elements prevented Miz Aguilera from being able to do the same! Hope you feel better, girl!

    Kelly Rowland is an amazing singer… no need to exaggerate upper respiratory infections happen to us regular folks all the time. Just cus a celeb comes down with something doesn't make it more serious than what it is. Christina looks 40 yrs old in that photo.

    My question is, why did it take so long for Heart and Donna Summer (who pretty much had to die before they inducted her) to get inducted into the Hall Of Fame? They were more ground-breaking than hacks like Madonna. There would be no Madonna without Donna. RIP

    She got a "respiratory infection"…sure! What perfect timing. She was prob just too lazy to show up..just like she was to lazy to promote her album, no wonder it flopped! This is the 2nd flop in a row right??? HAHA!

    Aguileras a fat selfish bitch. bet she was busy in macdonalds stuffing her bloated face. Beyonces backing dancer(Rowland) is not worthy to pay tribute to Donna summer.

    I've always thought Kelly should play Donna in a bio film. There are so many times she looks so muck like a young Donna.

    She was likely lost as to what to wear. Christina aguilera looks like a porn star .. avereage at best. Imagine her trashy ass up there with hudson, lol.

    Christina if you see this hair stripper is NOT a color. Seriously fat or thin Aguilera is nasty and dirty looking!

    To the comment christina aguilera looks sick … ever notice her arms? She has obvious track marks. This girl looks like a trashy slut. Time for a big girl look christina!

    I heard Christina was scheduled to perform ' Hot Stuff ' in the rocky way that Donna used to do in her concerts … so sad she didn't make it !

    Re: *** – Kelly is a very talented singer and so badly wants to star in the movie about the legendaary Donna Summer and her rise to fame, the hard times and how she over came them to become an even stronger singer, while developing an entirely new young fan base who loved and supported her Donna's 4 number one dance hits from the album Crayons in 2008(can you believe 5 years have passed already since the release of Crayons?) while introducing that same young new fan base to her older anthems and making new fans of her older material! Having toured world wide with Crayons and a huge European tour and peforming for her fan base she hasn't performed for in a long time singing some really of the really rare classics that made her huge in Europe and performing hits from Crayons and telling the world, Your Queen Is Back! Donna really had worked very hard through the early 2000's until her deat to reconnect with her fans, her several appearances on American Idol, re-connecting with her gay crow and showing the world I"m still here! She had workded so hard and the world was ready for a huge, huge return from Donna with her two new cd's, one all dance and one of classics! The world was ready and waiting….how sad she died before the world got to see and hear it! Kelly is very talented but I don't know that she has the vocal range to do Donnas's songs…she could pull it off!

    When Christina came upon the music scene and showed what a powerful voice she had I loved her alot! But then something happened, she sold out to only being able to record with other artist and release songs ….Christina Aguilera and Jazzy Jeff instead of showing off her God gift to succed on! Mariah did the same thing! No more power house vocals from those two!

    Part two- I've lost so much respect for Christina long before being asked to peform Donna's songs and help to induct her into the Rock Hall of Fame. Donna opened the door for all you Madonna's and future singers who wanted to dress like whores, couldn't sing and relied on the shock value to keep them in the news and popular! Donna also created Dance music with I FEEL LOVE which was the sound of the future as David Bowie put it the first time he heard it and now known as Electronic Dance Music and created a field for you non talented singers who rely on auto tune to make you sound on key to be able to make a living! Before Donna died, she was asked about that…she said, I hope they are putting their money in the bank and saving it because most of these kids today can't sing and won't be here long! I was disppointed that they even asked Christina to perform! She is not fit to rinse Donna's panties after Donna performed for 3 hours straight! Couldn't pull yourself away from the buffet long enough to pay respect to one of the greatest voices of our generation could you Christina? Now go get back in line! MOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
