Christina Aguilera Lands ‘Voice’ Job After Drunk Fiasco
Days after being detained for public intoxication (while her boyfriend was arrested for DUI), EW confirms that Aguilera has landed a coaching-judging gig on NBC’s upcoming reality series The Voice. The Mark Burnett-produced show, which hopes to be a direct competitor to American Idol, already has an all-star lineup of current singers as judges, as Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine have inked deals with the new show.
Aguilera said in a statement:
“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful project that celebrates music and the talent behind it … 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.”
The news is definitely a step in the right direction, and takes the negative attention that Christina’s recent woes have brought upon the songstress. The Voice premieres on NBC in late April.
