Tuesday on TV: Whoever wins, Christina Aguilera is a loser on "The Voice"

A winner will be declared on the Season 2 finale of The Voice (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5), and we already know who the loser is:

Christina Aguilera.

Her stint as a judge on this show has shown us three things. First, she has an ego much bigger than her voice (or her talent). Second, she's not particularly smart.

And, third, she is not a particularly nice person.

Her behavior on Monday's episode was far from gracious. She went after her former "Mickey Mouse Club" co-star Tony Lucca for choosing to sing Jay-Z's "99 Problems." Lucca didn't sing the rhymes-with-witch word, but Aguilera insisted the "lyrical connotation was a little derogatory toward women."

Others disagree.

And that's so brave of her to attack a contestant. When she makes the same point to Jay-Z, get back to us.

She essentially argued that Lucca was anti-woman. And she did so with Lucca's wife and young son in the audience.

Classy move, Christina.

Then she got in an argument with Adam Levine, who (not too brightly) argued the rhymes-with-witch word was not a reference to women.

Of course he would defend Lucca, who is on his "team." Plus, Aguilera's attack was rather ridiculous.

And she made it worse after her guy, Chris Mann, performed, declaring, "This is a real man who respects women."

That was childish and obnoxious. As Aguilera has so often been on "The Voice."

And if she has such a strong objection to the rhymes-with-witch word itself, why has she used it in so many of her own songs?

At any rate, at the end of tonight's two-hour episode we'll find out whether the winner is Lucca, Mann, Juliet Simms or Jermaine Paul.
