Christina Aguilera gushes about being named a Disney Legend during the D23 Expo: 'This is way cooler than a Grammy!'

Christina Aguilera was inducted Friday into the venerated ranks of Disney Legends as part of a kick-off ceremony for the D23 Expo, Disney's biennial fan convention. 

In the company's words, a Disney Legend is a person who has 'made remarkable contributions to the Disney legacy.' 

Aguilera, 38, was one of 12 famous faces honored at the ceremony, including Robert Downey, Jr., Robin Roberts and more.

Say yes to yellow like Christina wearing a Frankie Shop blazer dress

Summer might be coming to an end but that's no reason for us all to start wearing only black, navy and grey.

Forget that! Let's brighten up our days with primary shades and head turning colours like Christina Aguilera did yesterday at the D23 Expo. The singer-turned-actress looked rather fabulous in this vibrant yellow dress by Frankie Shop.

We love this sharply tailored blazer dress which features those oversized, dramatic shoulder pads. Styled with suede thigh high boots from House of CB, Christina really packed a punch as she walked the red carpet.

As she accepted the award, Aguilera said with a laugh: 'This is way cooler than a Grammy, I thought you should know.' 

She also continued to say that 'the world of Disney has made me feel like anything is possible from a young age.' 

And she credited the song Reflection with teaching her a valuable lesson to 'live your truth, to show who you are inside, to be brave, to be a fighter - and now these are messages I can pass on to [my kids].' 

Aguilera is currently dating Matthew Rutler, with whom she shares five-year-old Summer Rain.  

She also shares 11-year-old Max Bratman with ex-husband Jordan Bratman.  

The songstress has been dating Rutler since 2010.
