Original “Voice” judge Christina Aguilera is set to return to the show for the fifth season.
Aguilera and fellow original judge Cee Lo Green both left the hit series last winter at the end of season three to focus on their music careers. Although the two did become busy with their own projects, as Aguilera promoted her album and tour “Lotus” and Green with his album “Girl Power,” both judges are reportedly in for a comeback.
NBC sources say both artists are negotiating contracts for their return with Aguilera much more closer to closing a deal that will earn her a $12 million payday upon her return.
When Aguilera and Green left, the two were replaced by fellow singers Usher and Shakira, who took over for the spring season of the show. At that time, NBC reportedly intended both original judges to return for the fall of 2013.
