Christina Aguilera has praised fellow talent show judges Britney Spears and Mariah Carey, describing their appointments as “cool”.
Spears is set to join the panel of The X Factor USA, while Carey has joined American Idol.
The Voice judge told Extra: “It’s actually cool that these strong women are joining the club and they’re going to have fun.
“Britney’s so talented, I mean, she’s a pro. She’s been at it for a number of years now. We did grow up together, basically.”
Aguilera added: “I just found out about [Mariah Carey joining American Idol] last night.
“You know I love that. All these artists are coming together from all the experience that we’ve had and we’re being able to take that and feed this new wave of talent coming up.”
The 31-year-old star was joined by Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong for the interview, after he was announced as a mentor for the third season of The Voice.
“He’s had a tremendous amount of success in the business,” Aguilera said. “I like to switch it up. This one was very intriguing because he comes from a completely different genre of music than I do.
“He’s had tremendous obvious stage experience and touring and [I think] he would have some amazing advice and input.”
When asked if the two will duet on the show, Aguilera replied: “We’ll see… stranger things have happened.”
