Christina Aguilera Returning to 'The Voice' for $17 Million

Sparkly outfits, busty tops and big hair will be back on "The Voice" for Season 5. Pop diva Christina Aguilera will return next season as a coach on NBC's hit singing competition, an individual with knowledge of the deal has told TheWrap.

Aguilera has signed her contract to return to the NBC talent competition, the individual said. NBC could not immediately be reached for comment. The network held its upfront presentation for advertisers in New York on Monday, but did not announce any new coaches. The pop diva will be paid $17 million, about the same salary she made for Season 3, which makes her one of the highest paid women on reality TV. The insider said Aguilera's return has been kept under wraps for a couple of months.

Mariah Carey currently makes a reported $18 million on Fox's "American Idol" and Britney Spears made a reported $15 million on "The X Factor."
