Hey, it worked for Paula Abdul. And current "American Idol" judges Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez sure are enjoying career resurgences of their own right now. So now that it's been announced that Xtina has signed on to be a coach on NBC's new singing competition "The Voice" (joining a cast that includes Cee Lo, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, and one more coach to be determined), the burning question is: Will this TV show save her sagging career?
Well, no one can say Christina isn't qualified for the job. She's obviously great at singing (when she isn't OVERsinging, that is), she's been in the spotlight since she was a little girl (she even competed on the prototype talent show "Star Search" at age 8), and with her rumored diva temperament, she certainly seems capable of filling the show's presumed "mean judge" role. (Let's just hope she'll go easy on contestants who forget the words, because surely she can relate.)
"When I decided to produce 'The Voice,' I immediately knew that my first choice for a female coach had to be Christina Aguilera," reality veteran Mark Burnett stated. "Christina has a perfect voice and is an undeniable force in the music business. She is the epitome of 'The Voice.'"
Christina has reinvented herself many times over, from Mouseketeer to Lady Marmalade to Dirrty girl to retro-fabulous chanteuse. Will her "Voice" reinvention be more successful than 2010's Bionic woman? Soon we'll all be the judge of that.
