NBC’s singing competition juggernaut The Voice will continue for a tenth season, the network announced today in a press release.
Alongside the show’s regulars, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera will return to the coaches panel for a slated premiere in February 2016.
Aguilera was one of the original coaches when the show premiered in 2011. Since, it has become one of NBC’s top-rated shows. Its ninth season premiere earlier this September garnered 12.37 million viewers. And while this number was slightly down (.48 million) from last fall’s premiere, the show continues to place among the top three most-viewed shows for Monday and Tuesday night.
From Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment:
“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.”
What do you think? Do you watch The Voice? Who’s your favorite coach?
Last season, Christina was reportedly chronically late, which frustrated the producers, participants and other coaches. I hope they put a clause in the contract that severely penalizes her for every 10 minutes she’s late.
I agree with the other 2 comments – Shakira and Gwen are light years better than Xtina. Why they’re bringing her back is a total mystery (and a mistake).
I love Gwen and her interaction with the boys. May not watch if Christina is on. Go with the winning team … Gwen and the boys.
They all are my favorite. They make the show fun to watch. Both Gwen and Christina great. Could not choose between the two. It makes you feel bad for the singers that get them to turn thier chairs. I would have a hard time making a decsion on who I would want for a coach. Wish that they would add a Fifth member 🙂
Love the voice.
, but I (and a lot of people I know) don’t want Christina back. Absolutely love Gwen, why do they keep bringing C.A. back, it ruins the funness of the show. ..
I agree with you and the others. Although Xtina is a mega-talent, The Voice could do wirhout her. I too love Gwen, and her energy and connection with the guys works. Even Shakira was better on the show than Xtina.
