AceShowbiz - Christina Aguilera is getting her old job back. NBC announced on Tuesday, October 14 that the singer would return to "The Voice" as coach, joining fellow original coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as well as seventh season newbie Pharrell Williams in the show's eighth season.
"We are excited to welcome Christina back to her red chair and can't wait to see how she mixes things up among Adam, Blake and Pharrell, in what will be an incredibly competitive competition," Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment's president of alternative and late night programming, said in a statement. "These four talented artists are at the top of their game as musicians and as coaches. The mentoring is sure to be intense and the stakes will be high."
Gwen Stefani is currently sitting on Aguilera's post and will bow down when the show returns in early next year. Aguilera skipped the fourth, sixth and seventh season to give time to her own singing career and motherhood. She gave birth to daughter Summer Rain Rutler in August. Shakira was also her replacement.
