The 'Fighter' hitmaker has allegedly been sealed to return as a judge/mentor on the show's next season, which could premiere in the fall.
"The Voice" has just aired two episodes from its second season, but already report of the possible third season hits the web. According to The Wrap, Christina Aguilera has sealed a new contract that will make sure she'll return as a judge/mentor for the next installment.
The "Burlesque" actress is said to be the first of four judges to re-up her contract, which is believed to be amounted to $10 million. A so-called insider close to the show, however, claims that the contract is worth less than the aforementioned amount.
The site further reports that NBC considers to premiere "The Voice" season 3 this fall instead of waiting until 2013. However, a spokesman for the Peacock states that no decision has been made about whether the show's third season would air in the fall.
An insider at the network, meanwhile, reveals that they expect all four judges, including Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, to return in the new installment. "We're really pleased with the entire cast. You look at [the] ratings and it's no accident," so the insider gushes.
