Carson Daly: Forget The Rumors, Christina Aguilera Is Returning To “The Voice”
Yesterday, a dirty little rumor sprung up yesterday that producers for The Voice were planning to axe [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] from the coaching line up after the conclusion of its second season. [photogallerylink id=36028 align=right]
What’s fact and what’s false? Hear the truth straight from the horse’s mouth!
Contrary to reports, producers couldn’t be more pleased with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] and her work on The Voice.
Among the false complaints, sources say the pop star doesn’t spend quality time with her own contestants, she doesn’t “participate,” she brings her boyfriend with her on set all the time, and they even go as far to say that she’s drinking on the job!

What does Carson have to say about that? False, false, false and FALSE!
He set the record straight this morning on AMP Radio. As for her relationship with her contestants, he says she’s completely hands-on:
I think she spent more time with her contestants, her team, the girls, than anybody else. [It] may not have been on the set, but she was on the phone with them, working out what songs they were going to do. Adam might have spent more time, but [she's] top two. She spent more time than Cee Lo or Blake, for sure.
Okay, item number 2: Christina doesn’t “participate?” Also not true.
Some of the rehearsals she’s not at. Like some of them that I’m at, she’s really not needed. We’re doing what we call looksies and blocking and camera, so they’ll have a stand in, but it’s quite common. She’s there for all the dress [rehearsals] and all the stuff that she has to be there for.
