Fresh off of her night in the drunk tank, Xtina has announced to Entertainment Weekly that she will be a judge on Mark Burnett’s American Idol wannabe for NBC called THE VOICE, which premieres April 26th. Mark Burnett says that even though The Voice might seem like the unplanned baby American Idol gave birth to in a toilet, it’s totally different. The Voice, based on a Dutch reality show called The Voice of Holland, will pair contestants with famous singers who will coach and mentor them. Xtina, along with Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine, will be one of those coaches/judges.
It’s called The Voice, because during auditions the coaches will have their backs turned to the singers and give a “yes” or “no” based on their singing ability only. The “yes” button means that the coach wants to take the singer on as a student. If more than one coach chooses the same ho, then it’s up to the singer to decide who they want to be mentored by. Once each coach has formed their team, they will train them to complete against the other students. Each week, the teams will be given the same song to perform. The voting audience at home will decide who gets the axe.
So if you sing like a nightingale, but have a face like a parrot’s anus this is the show for you!
Here’s what Xtina had to say about possibly becoming the new Paula Abdul.
“I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful project that celebrates music and the talent behind it. To be given the opportunity to help shape new artists’ careers and mentor them to see their dreams come to fruition is a task I welcome with open arms.mI am so happy to be working with fellow Grammy Award winners Adam and Cee Lo as I feel there is so much we can all bring to The Voice.”
This is good for Hatchet-tina Face! Who needs rehab when you’ve got reality TV. You get to sit on your ass and drink wine soda from a giant cup while pretending to be interested in some young hos yodeling. Screw touring the world, Xtina now has it made.
