Christina Aguilera will be coach, judge on NBC's 'The Voice'




All of Christina Aguilera's extracurricular exploits -- ruining the National Anthem, looking wobbly at the Grammys, getting arrested for public intoxication -- surely aren't hurting her, since she just signed a deal to star as a coach and judge on NBC's upcoming singing contest, The Voice. Oh good, we've been waiting for a replacement for Paula Abdul's televised shame spiral.

"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 Entertainment Weekly. "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. I am so happy to be working with fellow Grammy Award winners Adam (Levine) and Cee Lo (Green) as I feel there is so much we can all bring to The Voice."


The show, produced by Mark Burnett, premieres on April 26. We expect to see Xtina in some sort of rehab by July 4.
