Vocal powerhouse Christina Aguilera joins Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green as judge/coach on NBC's new singing competition reality show 'The Voice'.
The show will be premiering on April 26 and will be hosted by Carson Daly. It looks like it's going to be a hit show as it is produced by Mark Burnett who created hit shows like Survivor and The Apprentice.
“When I decided to produce The Voice, I immediately knew that my first choice for a female coach had to be Christina Aguilera,” Burnett said. “Christina has a perfect voice and is an undeniable force in the music business. She is the epitome of The Voice.”
The troubled pop star also issued a statement that she's excited to be part of the show.
“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.mI 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.”
To make it different from American Idol and X Factor, the judges don't get to see the contestants when they audition. They only accept a performance by pushing a button if they hear someone they like. Thier chairs then turn to reveal the contestant.
I think this will give Xtina something to focus on. I hope she gets her life back together. She has a beautiful voice and it would be such a waste if she continues to ruin her reputation by grabbing tabloid headlines by being really bad and 'Dirty'.
