NBC has chosen an unusual time to make the following announcement: Christina Aguilera will join Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine as a judge on The Voice, the network's upcoming response to American Idol.
Just a day after the singer was arrested for being unable to stand up in public, producer Mark Burnett has officially tapped Christina for one of four spots on the judging panel.
Christina, Christina, how drunk are you right now?!?
“Christina has a once in a generation talent - her voice is phenomenally distinctive and instantly recognizable,” said Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. “Her journey as an artist, who started so young in the music business, will be an inspiration to the talent she coaches on the show.”
The Voice will premiere in the fall and offer $100,000 and a recording contract to the winner. No word yet on what sponsors have been lined up. We hear Christina is pushing for Jack Daniel's.
