How Christina Aguilera Ruined ‘The Voice’ (And Why She’ll Probably Be Back For Season 3)

May 15, 2012 01:00 PM by Shayla Perry

When The Voice first debuted on NBC, Christina Aguilera was arguably the most popular celebrity coach on the panel, which is one of the reasons she was able to command a salary that was more than what her co-stars — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green made…combined! But after the questionable eliminations (*cough* Jesse Campbell *cough*), the glammed up underwear, ample cleavage, and that whole Tony Lucca thing…Aguilera has fallen out of favor with a lot of fans who think that she should be replaced ahead of the show’s Season 3 premiere this fall. The question is: Will the producers “save” her from elimination?

It’s been a tough season of The Voice for Christina Aguilera. But despite all of the controversy and the gaudy get-ups that had fans up in arms and turning off the show well ahead of the finale, there’s still a very good chance that the “Fighter” singer will be returning to her spinning red chair when Season 3 begins this fall.


Though many saw the tension between Aguilera and Team Adam’s Tony Lucca as a major turn-off, what producers and network execs saw was major media coverage. And you know what they say, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”

And while there was certainly a lot of hate being thrown in Xtina’s direction after the surprising elimination of front-runner Jesse Campbell, and the many (many) opportunities she took to talk about herself, there’s no denying that Aguilera still has a very large fan base.

Then there’s the Adam Levine factor… Many sources have said that the two coaches’ friendly feud has gotten pretty heated behind-the-scenes.

BUT if a choice had to be made — Adam or Christina — Aguilera may very well find herself on the chopping block. Besides, who wants to break up that bromance between Adam and Blake Shelton?! Other than Carson Daly?

What do you think RTVM — Do you want to see Christina Aguilera replaced for Season 3 of The Voice? If so, who do you think should take her place? Sound off in the Comments section below.

    Best judge on the show- the only one who talks any sense and actually coaches their artists; when you get her as a judge you know you are getting vocal coaching as well as stage presence ideas.

    I think she should definitely by replaced. She makes me not want to watch this show anymore. I would replace her with another powerhouse female vocalist, AND maybe consider adding a 5th chair to include another female coach, that way there wouldn’t have to be just ONE female coach. I would pick Jennifer Hudson or Kelly Clarkson to replace her, and have the additional coach be Amy Lee.

    If Christina Aguilera is still there next year, I won’t be watching. Haven’t tuned in since she kicked off the best voice they had this year.

    grow the hell up..who cares how she was or acted. she was the only judge who knew what to say and critique the contestants. the others were bla actually. call her a bi@tch for how she is but she knows what she is doing cause she is the voice and nbc actually new what they were getting and liked her as a coach….

    Christina is THE VOICE. She gives this show credibility. People love to attack her for speaking her mind, but that is what this show needs. The first season everyone’s complaint was that they were all too nice. And now that she actually speaks up and does her job, she’s all of a sudden an evil human being? The worst she said about about Tony Lucca was that he coming off as a one dimensional performer, which was true. Even Adam agreed with her. Simon Cowell says things waaaaaay worse and you never hear people calling for his head and demanding he step down. Even when Adam tells his own teammate that she isn’t his favorite and that he is voting for someone else because he “has a better friendship” with him, people don’t even bat an eye. There is such a double standard at play and it’s obnoxious that people use these pointless reasons to undermine what are legitimate criticisms coming from her.

    Why would there need to be another female judge? Christina holds it down on her own. I swear only women ever hate on Christina. Must be sad to be reminded of your inadequacies in light of her superiority. Ya’ need to get lives. She’s coming back next season, making money. You’re hiding behind your computer enacting all the revenge on every girl you ever met that was prettier or more noticeable than you.

    Christina did not ruin anything. Adam’s behavior on the show was far worse, yet he’s still the golden boy of sort. Please.

    Christina is a great coach who is not afraid to voice her opinions, even the unpopular ones.

    She gets paid a lot of money to be honest and make the decisions she wants. If she is talking about herself its because she has 16 years experience in show business. Nobody seems to care when the men do the same thing. And if you really, really pay attention to the show its Adam Levine that is the antagonist and is very passive-aggressive toward her. She’s not worries about making her artists sing a nasty song about Adam because she just tels him. Whether America likes that or not. Love her! Love strong women!!

  9. Eh Says:

    I’m waiting the article saying Adam Levine ruined the show. He gave Tony Lucca a twenty point lead over America’s vote Katrina Parker and had his contestant attack a female judge with his song choices 3 weeks in a row. Any other job setting he would have been fired for harassment.

    Christina was a bitch!!! But you know that kind of attitude made the show interesting, because she says what she thinks ans it’s honest

    May 16th, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Seth hell yeah I totally agree with you. Christina is more enjoyable to watch and not just because of her looks. I like to hear what she has to say. The guys on the show also speak their mind but you cant underrate christina because fact is the guys are more boring than christina

  12. Alonso Says:
    May 16th, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    Who cares about that Jesse Campbell elimination? Did America miss that the public voted for Katrina Parker yet Adam made Tony Lucca go ahead?

  13. Jimmie Says:
    May 16th, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    I don’t think I would watch the show if not for Christina. She is the most credible and experienced in my opinion.

  14. Rita Says:
    May 16th, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    Christina was mean and annoying all season. She was wrong to let Jesse go. She went out of her way to insult Tony Lucca every week. She is the reason Chris Mann came in 4th. People wanted to punish her for being so horrible. Replace her with anyone. She is a hotmess!

  15. Nick Says:

    I wouldnt watch if xtina was not on the show… i hope she returns as a coach

    Christina is Trash…She is rude and nasty…she should be replaced..but they won’t do it till season 4…she needs to piss off more people with her premadonna attitude.

    LMAO what a ridiculous article

    Christina did NOTHING wrong other than be an honest judge. Just because she is a woman she’s expected to be the sweet, sugar-coating judge? NO. She’s easily the star of the show and knows what the hell she talks about, which is why she commands the biggest paycheck and NBC cannot afford to lose her.

    Tony Lucca and Adam Levine acted like misogynistic brats last season. Tony attacked and disrespected Christina because she didn’t completely fawn over him as he expected just because they were on a tv show together 20 years ago? Who the hell does he think he is. And Adam was just as horrible for pushing him to do those things, like calling a woman a b**tch on national tv and taunting someone who is supposed to give honest critiques about the contestant’s performances. That’s why Adam has been walking with his tail between his lags since the show ended. He’s got to go.

    She ruined the show becuz she was judging contestants?! Was that not her purpose? Your an idiot for writing this artical!

    I am so glad that people are starting to realize that it was ADAM and his childish behavior that was the problem on season 3… For ANY woman to take that type of harrasment, i.e. having a ‘contestant’ taunt her for three minutes on HER job by singing a song AT her AND insinuating she was a B*TCH while she had to sit there… I thought her comments were full of nothing but complete class AFTER going through that. I would NOT have been as controlled as she was in dealing with it! AND that’s why I admire HER completely and now I fast forward on ADAM’s sections and didn’t see ANY of him and the contestant singing on the finally because now ADAM is just a sad human being who attacks women who dont behave as he would have them… AND lastly, he better be careful before the world finds out how LITTLE of a MAN he is when Matthew Rutler, who was wearing a Muhammud Ali shirt at the NBC upfronts and happens to be a whole lot more MAN than little ADAM decides to TALK to him about calling his woman a C*NT!

    Christina ruined the show by giving honest critiques? She pushed her artists as well as the artists of others to be the best they could be – she forced them out of their comfort zone and forced them to grow into better performers.

    Since when has “honesty” and ‘wanting others to succeed’ been considered undesirable qualities in a human being?

  21. Sergio Says:
    May 19th, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    She has to go! She could care less about the contestants and only wants the attention. She is completely useless and I will not watch the show is she returns.

    I wouldn’t watch the show if it wasn’t for Xtina. the show will be boring.

    Christina’s attitude was absurd. She went against the entire platform of the show….to be positive and to judge people simply on the voice not the package. The producers need to find their big boy panties and keep her attitude in check or show her the door. I would rather see someone else in that chair, I don’t understand why anyone would want to work with someone so nasty.

    I don’t like the song 99 Problems either, but Tony Lucca SANG the song, he didn’t WRITE the song so why wasn’t Christina Haterguilera mad at JAY-Z? She probably bounces to the song in her car!

    Point two and MOST IMPORTANT, did she forget that each week on the voice she either has her cleavage exposed to the entire free world or has NO PANTS on?!! Did she consider HER BOYFRIEND, SON, MOTHER, BROTHER, young women and viewers each time she did that?! What about her arrest last year for public intoxication? Was SHE setting a good example for YOUNG WOMEN then? I don’t like judging people but I hate her hypocrisy.

    I know why she dissed Justin Bieber. He had an album and a movie out the same time she did and both his projects were successful while both hers tanked! So that’s a reason to snub him publicly? Is it Justin Bieber’s fault he’s more successful than her? Or Adam Levine’s? Obviously their ATTITUDE MUST have something to do with their success. Being a huge B! will only get you so far in life. Grow up Christina, like really!

    Christina is very intelligent when it comes to the music business. If the 3 male coaches are smart, they should get some lessons on how to sing from Christina since they’re sitting next to her. Apparently she’s the only one who can sing and knows what she’s talking about fo shizzle my nizzle! All the peeps who are bashing Christina must be related to Britney Spears, who we all know cannot sing worth diddly squat.

    Really everyone watched the show because Xtina was going to be on now idiots think she needs to go…please she’s the reason its a hit and thats why lil bitch Adam shoots at her to make news.Honestly I knew of Maroon 5 but I didn’t even know his name. Now he think can bring a Artist down..I can’t stand his face on TV….they need to let him go.

    I am so glad that all these comments were’nt loaded with people that had no sense like most other Christina Aguilera covers. I first started liking her when I watched Burlesque, which is now my favorite movie. Everyone likes to judge her because she’s “bitchy”. Really, she isn’t at all. This woman has been through hell and back with an abusive childhood, a divorce, record labels screwing her over, and she isn’t bitchy, she just isn’t gonna take any shit from anyone because she has learned that pleasing everyone else isn’t worth it and she is just being herself. Also, everyone likes to criticize her for her weight. If you would notice, she barely tipped over 100 pounds until she was like 25. She had a baby for crying out loud. She isn’t even fat, she’s curvy. Sorry if today’s generation of critics only take anorexic girls. I look up to Christina because she is always true to herself no matter what. Not to mention she has had the best voice in the singing industry since she belted out her first note. If you would all open your minds to something other than Kesha, you might be able to see that Christina is an amazing inspiration. I could go on, but I’m not going to.

    “Christina is THE VOICE! She gives this show (more)credibility.” – kl

    I absolutely agree with kl. Christina not only talks sincerely and sensibly, but also, with great life/energy and know-how. She is simply the life of the show! She is the VOICE itself! I wonder what would happen if there is no one like her in the show.

    As a parting shot, I wish to impart that as adults, the four coaches should try their best to maintain harmony in the show at all times. More power to all! See you all next season!

    xtina is the only one out of all the judges who:

    1. has made it big by herself, and when i say big…i mean britney, madonna, mariah kinda big. that girl is famous AROUND the world, not only in the US. shelton nobody knew before the show, cee lo is cool but what’s he gonna do for you? he can’t even have a successful career himself, adam bacame famous WITH a band.

    2. can actually sing her mother fucking ass off, which is why she became huge as a teenager in the first place. everytime she sings the show stops. maroon 5 is cool, but adam wouldnt be anything without his band and shelton…who is shelton, again? ah yah…the country singer…

    3. is a diva…but hey, are singers of her caliber not divas? yah right…dont tell me madonna, britney, mariah, whitney and all the ladies that have made it big arent divas. aguilera happens to be part of the club. no news people. thats how that business works.

    she kicks ass. point blank period…

    bye bitches…

    She needs to GO!!!! Her attitude sucks butt her clothes and hair look horrible!! Everyone is saying she is the voice she is a hot ghetto mess!! There are a million and one people who can sang just as well or not better than freaking Christina A. Not only that the way she acted towards Tony was freakin ridiculous she behaved like a spoiled brat! If I was Tony I would have said the Words and looked dead in her face she wasnt critiguing him she was being mean and nasty there is a difference! If she had such a huge problem with that song then she should have said something when JayZ first had it out im sure she had the opportunity!! But her stank no class self no who and who not to play with! She gets absolutely no respect from me and the sad thing is I really liked her the first season! But I hate stank people with stank attitudes especially when its for absolutely no reason! Thats what I call a bully!

    Ok, first, Jesse Campbell was a huge success on the show….he didn’t need the show anymore…he could make it on his own….second….Christina cannot be replaced by anyone because no one has her voice…..she can SING…lastly….people will say what they will BECUASE she is the most popular!!!

    Notice how many guys say Christina is more entertaining than the guys? Maybe if the guys came out half dressed, they’d get more attention, but then Christina would have to come out naked, which she doubtless wouldn’t mind.

  33. preston Says:
    August 21st, 2012 at 5:42 pm

    i think she should definitley be replaced by miranda lambert or shania twain i also think there should be a fifth chair added for katy perry or even kelly clarkson i dont care whos there just replace christina because she is really bringing down the ratings and channces are if you dont get rid of her you will prob gfet takin off the air for not getting enough views

  34. J Says:
    October 16th, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    LOL the ratings are higher than ever this season….y’all were WRONG.

    And for people who know music, you will realize that Christina makes the best critiques and arguably has the best song choices for her contestants (Adam and here go back and forth, Blake and Cee Lo are terrible)…Adam was FAVORING Tony over more talented singers…and said he didn’t really like Katrina who he kicked off…and that Christina called one of her own contestants multi-dimensional. Jesse Campbell, ACCORDING TO OTHER CONTESTANTS ON THE SHOW ON OTHER TEAMs…was a terrible primadonna with a terrible attitude who had two stylists and a personal trainer, but was crying poverty to the nation. At least Christina has been in the industry for over a decade to warrant an opinionated attitude…and being the only woman on the panel she gets a lot of flack, because she is opinionated and self-centered…But so is ADAM…come on…
