Christina Aguilera joins NBC's 'The Voice'
by James Hibberd
Christina Aguilera is coming to NBC.
The five-time Grammy winner has signed on as a coach/judge on Mark Burnett’s singing competition series The Voice.
Celebrity singers fill three spots on the judging panel so far, with Xtina joining Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. Aguilera was first reported as being in talks for the show in an EW exclusive posted last week.
“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.”
Though launching any music competition series at the same time Fox’s American Idol is on the air remains perilous, the lineup gives NBC some heavy-hitting star power behind its show — and adds to Burnett’s impressive roster of reality casting coups. (Anybody who can sign Sarah Palin and Christina Aguilera for reality shows is a casting wizard.)
“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.”
That Aguilera has been all over the news lately — and not for her singing — doesn’t exactly hurt the show’s prospects either. Aguilera’s recent detainment for public drunkenness, stumbling onstage at the Grammys, and botching the National Anthem at the Super Bowl is the kind of unpredictability that makes for must-watch reality TV (see: Paula Abdul on American Idol).
The Voice premieres on Tuesday, April 26.

Is this the same show that was orginally the sing off and if so did comcast NBC change it to The Voice and if so it looks like we have a new look and new judges looking for the next singing star. If not and they still have the sing off I think its cool they have too singing shows on NBC. I was just curious if they changed the sing off to The Voice or curious if they will have both the sing off and The Voice for the shows they air on NBC. I look forward to checking out the show when it airs in April.

|This is a brand new show. It's kind of like American Idol except they have a vocal coach to help them each week. :)|

||Thats awesome I'm glad they have another American Idol like show out their and its great to have two singing shows The Voice this spring and maybe this fall the sing off will return once more. Thank you so for letting me know for I truly appreciate it. I can't wait to see this show and can't wait for the sing off to return as well. I hope they have Christina Aguilera be the head judge as for the other judges I'm not sure who they are and are not as familar with them as I am Christina Aguilera. I am truly excited to check out this new series when it airs.|
