Christina Aguilera
Greg Gibson: As Elphaba, I see Christina Aguilera....can you hear her belting out DEFYING GRAVITY!!!! It would be awesome! And the flying in the film........ooooh.....goosebumps! lol

Grammy Award winner Christina Aguilera has been seen in the movie "Burlesque," which featured multiple musical sequences. We'd love to see her in a full-length musical this time, and her infinite vocal range would be perfect for the role of Elphaba.
