After giving birth to daughter Summer Rain, Christina Aguilera took a break from being a coach, but now she’s ready to turn that chair again for aspiring artists.
Aguilera will be back for The Voice Season 10 this coming February to join the original set of coaches, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who both have not missed a season, as well as Pharrell Williams who started in season 7.

Previously, Aguilera’s spot had been filled in by Colombian artist, Shakira and currently by Gwen Stefani, who is rumored to be dating Shelton after their respective divorces. Some speculate that the rumors are just a publicity stunt to drum up ratings for the show, and Shelton has dropped hints on his Twitter page that the rumors are not true.
“Everyone knew she was coming back once she left,” an insider said about Christina’s return. “It was always the plan.”
Paul Telegdy, president of late night and alternative programming at NBC Entertainment said in a statement, “The coaches on The Voice continue to bring incredible energy, unrivaled musical expertise, and a want-to-win attitude that makes for the perfect ingredients of a two-time Emmy-winning show. We can’t wait to see what season 10 will bring.”
A lot of viewers will be looking forward to Aguilera’s fashion ensembles and candid opinions again, and her fans will surely be excited about her comeback.
Aguilera has skipped other seasons in the past. She passed on the fourth season to focus on her music career; the sixth and seventh seasons to prepare for Summer Rain’s birth and another new album.

She tried to return for season 8 but eventually skipped it. But now the news of her return for season 10 is official.
Sadly, no more Stefani-Shelton love story on the set, although there won’t be any shortage of hilarious banter and amazing talent on the show.
