Christina Aguilera Returning to 'The Voice'?

Christina Aguilera is in talks to return to "The Voice," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Xtina was one of the original hosts of the show during the first three seasons, but stepped out for season four alongside co-host Cee-Lo. Shakira and Usher stepped in as replacements, but a source close to the "Your Body" singer says our girl could be back in action in the swivel chair for season five.

And rumor has it Christina is set to receive a paycheck in the neighborhood of $12 to $17 million for returning to the judging chair. That's gotta equal out to like, $50,000 a week or something, right? Now I'm sad.

While Christina's return to "The Voice" isn't yet official, she did make it clear when she left the show that she wasn't totally against the idea of returning at a later date. When we spoke to Christina last year as she was about to leave the show to promote her latest album, Lotus, she left things open-ended. "I appreciate ['The Voice' producer Mark Burnett's] understanding that I need to go spread my wings for a second and do Lotus, and 'Your Body,' and get back to me, so that I can return and be the best coach ever."
