It’s Back to Basics on The Voice! Original coach Christina Aguilera is officially returning to the hit NBC musical competition series for season 8, the show’s Twitter handle confirmed on Tuesday, Oct. 14.
“OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Say HELLO to your Season 8 coaches! @adamlevine @Pharrell @xtina @blakeshelton #TheVoice,” The Voice’s Twitter handle tweeted.
The show is currently airing the pre-taped episodes in season 7 before moving onto the live rounds in a few weeks. Joining original coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are newbies Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.
The “Happy” singer, songwriter, and famed producer, 41, will be staying on for next season with Xtina, 33. Before Stefani, 45, officially joined the cast back in April, Aguilera accidentally spilled the beans, tweeting, “So excited to have you join #TheVoice squad @GwenStefani! Welcome to our crazy fan! Kisses- xoxo #blondesdoitbest.”
Aguilera coached in the show’s first three seasons, abdicating her red throne to Colombian superstar Shakira in season 4 before returning for season 5. She coached alongside CeeLo Green, who revealed to Us Weekly in July that he had left the show for good.
