Christina Aguilera To Return To The Voice For Season Five

After taking a break from her judging/mentoring duties on The Voice to focus on her music career, Christina Aguilera will be back for season five. According to the Wrap, XTina's new deal is worth $17 million, the same sum she earned during season three of the show.

However, an executive for the program, speaking with the Los Angeles Times, insists that the figure is closer to $12 million.

During season four, both Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green were replaced with Shakira and Usher, while Adam Levine and Blake Shelton remained on the panel.

Late last year, Cee-Lo announced that he was planning on coming back after one season off. No official confirmation has come regarding Green's return to the program.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8PM EST on NBC.
