Christina Aguilera + Cee Lo Green Will Probably Be Back on ‘The Voice’ Next Season

After a season off, looks like former ‘Voice‘ coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are set to reclaim their cushy spinning chairs.

And, of course, the cushy spinning paychecks that go with them.

According to an insider for NBC, Aguilera signed a deal a couple of months ago to return next season but the deal was kept under wraps. As for Cee Lo, the exec told The Wrap, “We are not there yet, but working toward it.”

Xtina will make $12.5 million for Season 5, which is quite a bit less than the $17 mil she earned on Season 3, but it still ranks her among the highest-paid women on reality television. Green’s pay isn’t expected to be anywhere near that much.

Aguilera does have the opportunity to make more next year, but that depends on how much time she puts in since, weirdly, coaches are paid by the hour. (We can’t even begin to compute the hourly there.)

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, the other two original judges, are also in negotiations but expected to return to the competition, with current judge Shakira anticipated to come back at some point in the future. As for Usher, no word as of yet.
