Christina Aguilera becomes NBC ‘Voice’ coach

Singer added to primetime series team

Christina Aguilera has been named the third musical coach for upcoming NBC competition series “The Voice.”

Aguilera, a five-time Grammy winner, joins Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine on the Carson Daly-hosted singing show, exec produced by Mark Burnett and Audrey Morrissey with creator John de Mol. One coach remains to be hired for the series, which bows in April.

“Christina has a once in a generation talent — her voice is phenomenally distinctive and instantly recognizable,” said NBC alternative programming topper Paul Telegdy. “Her journey as an artist, who started so young in the music business, will be an inspiration to the talent she coaches on the show.”

News comes the same week that Aguilera was arrested in West Hollywood on charges of public intoxication, though no charges are being pressed in the case. She also recently delivered a much-criticized rendition of the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl.

“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.”
