It has been officially confirmed by Entertainment Weekly that recently jailed singer Christina Aguilera has signed on to be a judge/coach on the new Mark Burnett-produced singing competition enitled “The Voice.”
At the judges table Aguilera will be in the company of “F**k You” singer Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
Speaking on her new duties, Christina had this to say:
“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful project that celebrates music and the talent behind it,” Aguilera said in a statement. “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms. I am so happy to be working with fellow Grammy Award winners Adam and Cee Lo as I feel there is so much we can all bring to ‘The Voice.'” (Source)
Burnett, the show’s creator & executive producer, claimed he knew right off the bat that the “Dirrty” singer would be the perfect female coach.
“When I decided to produce ‘The Voice,’ I immediately knew that my first choice for a female coach had to be Christina Aguilera,” Burnett told EW. “Christina has a perfect voice and is an undeniable force in the music business. She is the epitome of ‘The Voice.'”
“The Voice” premieres on April 26th on NBC. Hopefully by then Christina’s voice (and mind) will be prepared so we don’t all have to endure another round of this.
