Christina Aguilera’s ready to return to her swiveling red chair…
The 33-year-old half-Ecuadorian American singer and original The Voice coach, who has taken off two consecutive seasons, is coming back for the NBC reality singing competition’s next installment.
Since Aguilera last sat in the famous red leather chair, she got engaged to Matt Rutler earlier this year and gave birth to their daughter, Summer Rain Rutler, in August 2014.
When Aguilera returns to The Voice for its eighth season, she’ll rejoin longtime coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine — but this will be the first season she’ll compete against Pharrell Williams.
Shakira and Gwen Stefani filled in for Aguilera during her hiatus from The Voice, both earning critical acclaim.
