“Aguilera and Pharrell Williams will serve as coaches for season eight of the hit reality show, alongside Blake Shelton and Adam Levine,” the story reports. “Shelton and Levine have been with the show since the beginning, while Aguilera served as an original coach and took seasons four, six and seven off. During her off seasons, Shakira and Gwen Stefani replaced the Gammy winner.”

In a statement, Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late-night programming for NBC Entertainment, said: “We are excited to welcome Christina back to her red chair and can’t wait to see how she mixes things up among Adam, Blake and Pharrell, in what will be an incredibly competitive competition. These four talented artists are at the top of their game as musicians and as coaches. The mentoring is sure to be intense and the stakes will be high.”
