NBC announced Christina Aguilera will be returning to the singing competition series The Voice for season 10. Aguilera will join returning coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams when season 10 premieres in February 2016.
“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,” stated Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see what season 10 will bring.”
Season nine is currently airing with Levine, Shelton, Williams, and Gwen Stefani as coaches. The show’s averaging 12.6 million viewers over season nine’s first few weeks of the blind auditions, and is about to launch into the battle rounds.
No female coach has ever had one of their team members win a season of The Voice. Blake Shelton coached the most aspiring artists to wins, with four of his team members earning the top title (Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery, and Craig Wayne Boyd). Adam Levine follows with two wins (Javier Colon and Tessanne Chin) while Usher has one win (Josh Kaufman), and Pharrell Williams coached last season’s winner (Sawyer Fredericks).
Levine and Shelton have coached every season of The Voice. Season nine marks Pharrell Williams’ third season in the coaching chair, and Aguilera’s return for season 10 will be her sixth season on the show.
The Voice was created by John de Mol and is executive produced by de Mol, Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Lee Metzger, and Jay Bienstock.
