Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 5 years
“The Voice” judge Christina Aguilera was really battling it out with finalist Tony Lucca on the show and now it appears that we know why. According to reports, Xtina was nursing a crush on Tony from their earlier days on “The Mickey Mouse Club.” Who knew?!? The feud between Tony and Christina began when he took the stage on the show and she didn’t seem to recognize him. She criticized him on the show and targeted him on a number of occasions. A source said that Tony “tried to be professional and first and ignore her unfavorable critiques”, but that didn’t help the tension between the two. Eventually, he said, “I’m not going to let one person bring me down. Clearly that seems like part of her strategy.” A former Mousketeer, Dale Godboldo, said that there’s a reason behind all of Christina’s dislike for Tony now.

MTV News - almost 5 years
By Zachary Swickey If you kept up with the nail-biting second season of NBC’s “The Voice,” then you are already aware that Jermaine Paul was crowned this season’s winner. However, the real juicy backstory throughout the season has been the peculiar and seemingly bitter feud between Christina Aguilera and contestant Tony Lucca, who both appeared on “The Mickey Mouse Club” as kids. It all started when Lucca first took the stage and Aguilera seemed to not recognize him. But that was just the start. As the season continued, Aguilera became more and more critical of Lucca, specifically targeting him with particularly harsh (if not necessarily incorrect) criticism on multiple occasions. Of course, Lucca tried to be professional at first and ignore her unfavorable critiques; however, he did finally snap back, telling People, “I’m not going to let one person bring me down. Clearly that seems like part of her strategy.” According to Dale Godboldo, a “Mickey Mouse Club” co-star from ba ...
