Christina Aguilera said a season away from “The Voice” was the break that she needed to get reinvigorated — for herself, the show and the contestants.
Aguilera and CeeLo Green took time off from the show last season, and were replaced by Usher and Shakira. But they wil be back in their signature red chairs for this season on NBC.
Speaking to a small group of reporters last week, Aguilera said the show, now in its fifth season, was taking a bit of a toll on her — coupled with her demanding life outside of it — including being a mother to 5-year-old son Max.
Aguilera’s commitment to finding that elusive balance of life and career is something she’s teaching this year’s crop of singing hopefuls.
Still, she’s interested in the winning part of it. She hasn’t had a trophy to show in her three years of coaching and is trying to change that this year. Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has won once, while country singer Blake Shelton has held the title three years running.
