Christina Aguilera Set to Come Back to The Voice for 17M (Cee Lo Is Returning Too) (UPDATED)

The Wrap reports that Christina Aguilera signed a 17 million dollar contract to return to The Voice this fall.

Sparkly outfits, busty tops and big hair will be back on “The Voice” for Season 5.

Pop diva Christina Aguilera will return next season as a coach on NBC’s hit singing competition, an individual with knowledge of the deal has told TheWrap.

Aguilera has signed her contract to return to the NBC talent competition, the individual said.

The pop diva will be paid $17 million, about the same salary she made for Season 3, which makes her one of the highest paid women on reality TV.

If this report is true, what will happen to Usher and Shakira? Rumor has it, all 6 coaches will be returning in the fall!  If I were NBC, I’d be finding a way to keep Shakira. She’s a breakout star.  Both Usher and Shakira are super-engaging and have better chemistry with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton than either Christina or Cee Lo Green.

UPDATE::  Deadline reports that Shakira is leaving this season, and that Cee Lo is currently negotiating his return to The Voice, although he won’t make nearly as much as Christina.  Also, a new report says Christina may only make 12.5 million, depending on how many hours she works.

I’m not convinced Christina is worth the money.
