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.
