The Voice is coming to NBC.

Premiering on April 26, this singing competition will attempt to separate itself from American Idol and The X-Factor via one significant way: judges Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine will listen to the initial set of auditions blindly.

Also, Carson Daly will host! Yes, he's still alive. Check out the first promo for the upcoming series now and then sound off...

Will you tune in for The Voice?

With her face plastered on tabloids and with a recent arrest on record, Christina Aguilera faced the press yesterday.

The singer made her first public appearance since being booked for public intoxication, telling journalists gathered for an event to hype NBC's The Voice that life can be difficult in the spotlight.

Christina in the Big Apple

"We're only able to be seen through the microscope of the media and what people gossip about," Aguilera said.

On the panel, Christina joked around with fellow judge Adam Levine and played with son Max throughout the interview. She continued:

"You take the good with the bad. It's by telling our stories, sharing our experiences and really giving a first hand look at us as human beings [that shows] who we really are, apart from what we seem to be."

Her goal as a judge on this American Idol-like competition? To inspire contestants.

"The Voice isn't about tearing people down. I want to bring people up. I want to empower them and give them all the tools I had. I love that I get to be apart of that."

The latest issue of Us Weekly states that Christina Aguilera has hit rock bottom.

But, sadly, that actually does not appear the case.

A witness at Osteria Mozza - the same establishment where Christina and Matt Rutler dined/drank prior to their arrest earlier this month - tells the tabloid the couple returned to that restaurant just three days after their wasted run-in with the police. And?

"She acted as if the arrest never happened," the onlooker says. "When their server offered them dessert, they asked for more wine."

Christina in the Car

Pssst, Christina: Maybe someone else should drive.

Tinger and her boyfriend wised up and took a chauffeured limo home, but a friend is still considered:

"She should see the arrest as a wake-up call, but she doesn't. She doesn't think things are that bad."

Christina Aguilera has just been named a judge on The Voice, NBC's upcoming answer to American Idol. This should be a high time in the singer's career, right?

Wrong. As has been well-documented - from a lyric flub on the world's biggest stage to a recent arrest for public intoxication - Aguilera is suffering a Britney-like meltdown in front of our eyes.

In the latest issue of Star, a friend says Christina has "lost her confidence" since splitting from husband Jordan Bratman.

The Downfall of Christina Aguilera

“She gets terribly sad, and that’s when all the awful memories come flooding back and she ends up numbing herself with booze and food," says the source, who claims Aguilera has gained 40 pounds over the last few months.

Pals believe Aguilera's new boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, has served as an enabler to the troubled celebrity. How will this relationship play out? They are scared to consider the possibility.

"Everyone is worried sick," says this friend. "She needs to get help before something even more serious happens."

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.

The Voice Judge

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.

Police spokespeople have said Christina Aguilera was arrested yesterday for her own safety, not because she was engaged in any kind of criminal activity.

Still, this caveat does not mask the fact that the singer has a clear drinking problem (cops on the scene said she could not stand and did not know where she was). Friends tell TMZ they've been urging Christina to check into rehab for months now, even prior to her October split from Jordan Bratman.

"Maybe when she was married she was able to keep it under wraps, but it's out in the open now," a pal tells the site.

Christina Aguilera Mug Shot

E! News got its hands on the Christina Aguilera mug shot this artist's team never wanted you to see.

Insiders add that Aguilera's drinking was a major concern for Bratman, who brought up the topic during the ex-couple's child custody agreement.

In light of this incident, will he push for more time with son Max? Might Christina finally check into a treatment center? We'll keep readers apprised on the state of the latest celebrity downfall.

New details have emerged on Christina Aguilera's recent arrest, and they don't make the singer or boyfriend Matthew Rutler look very good.

Sources tell TMZ that Christina and her man dined in a private room at posh Los Angeles restaurant Osteria Mozza until well past midnight. Deep into a couple bottles of wine, a fellow patron reportedly recognized Aguilera, asked the waiter to send her a drink and was told: "She's already drinking a bottle of wine... or two."

Hilarious.

Matthew Rutler Mug Shot

Meanwhile, both Rutler and Aguilera have been released from jail. They are allegedly holing up in her Beverly Hills home.

Pulled over by police for swerving on the road, Rutler blew a .09 on the breathalyzer, according to Radar Online. The legal limit in California is .08. He doesn't look too broken up about it in the mug shove above, does he?

As for Christina, L.A. County Sheriff Office spokesperson Steve Whitmore says Aguilera was a complete mess when she and Rutler were pulled over: "When she got out of the car, she couldn't stand. We had to help her stand. She didn't know where she was and she didn't know her own address. We took her into custody for her own protection."

In what can be deemed as an incident any celebrity gossip follower could have easily seen coming, Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning for public intoxication.

According to TMZ, the singer was booked around 3 a.m. at the West Hollywood police station for the misdemeanor offense, while boyfriend Matt Rutler was also processed on charges of drunk driving. His bail was set at $30,000.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

It's been a troubling few months for Aguilera, as friends have been concerned over her downward spiral since her divorce from Jordan Bratman.

Aside from her memorably embarrassing national anthem mishap at the Super Bowl, Christina has most recently been accused of having sex with Rutler during a family gathering.

Cops reportedly pulled Rutler over this morning after they noticed him driving erratically. Sources say Aguilera acted "extremely intoxicated" and was "unable to take care of herself."

UPDATE: Says Sgt. Michael Thomas of West Hollywood Sheriff's Department: "Aguilera was taken into custody "for her own safety. It's kind of a welfare 'arrest.' Not a criminal arrest. She was intoxicated - too much to be in public. No one was available to take care of her, because the person she was with was arrested for drunk driving. When it's determined she's sober, she'll be released."

Poor Christina Aguilera.

Exactly one week after her notable lyric snafu at Super Bowl XLV, the artist returned to a grand stage at the Grammy Awards. Teaming up with Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams for a tribute to Aretha Franklin, Aguilera remembered every word and received a standing ovation following the performance.

She then slipped and almost crashed off the stage, as seen toward the conclusion of the following video.
