Christina Aguilera has beaten the likes of Lady GaGa and Katy Perry to the title of the most empowering song of the last ten years, according to a poll conducted with lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

Equality organisation Stonewall put together the online poll, where over 1,000 supporters were asked which track of the last decade they felt had the most empowering message.

Xtina's 2003 hit Beautiful came out on top with 33% of the vote, while Boyzone's tune Better achieved 25%, leaving it in second place.

Ronan Keating and Co were the first boyband to feature a homosexual couple in the video for Better, where the late Stephen Gately posed in the promo with a male lover.

Christina's video for Beautiful also includes a gay couple, who openly kiss and hold hands in public.

GaGa's anthem, Born This Way, placed third with 17%, with Gossip's Standing In The Way Of Control and Katy Perry's Firework just behind her.

After learning that she had topped the poll, Aguilera stated: "I'm delighted to have been voted the most inspirational pop act by Stonewall's supporters - my gay fan base is so important to me and this continues my special relationship with them."
