Christina Aguilera signs up to judge NBC’s The Voice with Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine

NBC confirmed today that Christina Aguilera will judge–er, be a “musician coach”–on The Voice, along with Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. She will sit in one of the show’s signature swivel chairs, which may be risky considering her recent mishaps. The announcement comes one day after she was arrested for public intoxication.

The three singers are defined as “musician coaches” instead of judges because the show, while it is an imported format, is set up to be a preemptive strike at Fox and Simon Cowell’s X Factor, which has its judges mentor a group of singers.

In a press release quote, Christina/the publicist who wrote the quote said, “To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms.” And producer Mark Burnett insists in his quote that “my first choice for a female coach had to be Christina Aguilera.”
