The 'Beautiful' singer recently extended her 'Xperience' residency at Planet Hollywood and not only does she want the 'Breakaway' hitmaker to watch her perform with a "fun" group of her friends, she also wants the former 'American Idol' champion to join her on stage.

Appearing on 'The Kelly Clarkson' show, Christina told the host: "You have to come. Bring a fun group of people, because I love feeding off the energy.

"It's a great environment. It's a great place to be expressive and creative.

"You should come and we should sing a song in Vegas."

The 37-year-old presenter admitted she "would love to" join Christina at the show - but was scared of singing with her.

She replied: "That makes me nervous. I would love to!"

Christina recently admitted she would "feel good" if her children wanted to follow in her footsteps.

The 'Genie in a Bottle' hitmaker - who began performing in talent shows as a child and landed a role on 'The All-New Mickey Mouse Club' when she was 13 - would "support" Max, 11, and Summer, four, if they asked to become singers and is confident she has the knowledge to help guide them to stardom.

She said: "I would support that. I can't fault them for something I wanted to do as a kid.

"At least they're getting their childhood and I'm providing them a safe space. I'd feel good about it because I know all the ins and outs - be careful, use your instincts - growing up in this since I was seven years old."

But the 38-year-old pop star warned the key to "surviving" in the music industry is to learn to ignore other people's opinions.

She added: "You have a lot of older men and people, opinions, being thrown at you, pushed at you.

"You're pushed and pulled until finally I was able to take my mask off and say, 'No, this is how I need to do this for myself if I have a chance of surviving.' "
