Christina Aguilera's New Gig As Mentor On 'The Voice' — Will It Save Her Career?

Despite being arrested for public intoxication on March. 1, the singer is still sought after by TV execs!

Christina Aguilera might be falling down, but she’s trying to get back on top — the five-time Grammy Award-winning singer will be a musician coach on NBC’s upcoming competition show The Voice. The show, which premieres on Apr. 26, will also feature Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine as mentors — is this the new American Idol?

“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful project that celebrates music and the talent behind it,” Christina says. “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. I am so happy to be working with fellow Grammy Award winners Adam and Cee Lo as I feel there is so much we can all bring.”

Christina recently tripped after her Grammy performance, flubbed the lyrics to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, and was arrested on March. 1 along with her boyfriend Matthew Rutler for public intoxication. Even though she was released and no charges are being pressed, it doesn’t seem to have affected her career — yet.

“Christina has a once in a generation talent — her voice is phenomenally distinctive and instantly recognizable,” Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President at NBC says. “Her journey as an artist, who started so young in the music business, will be an inspiration to the talent she coaches on the show.”

Do you think this is exactly what Christina needs to repair her image?
