Christina Aguilera Books Nashville Arc

Apparently, what a girl needs is a side gig.

Pop diva Christina Aguilera will extend her TV presence beyond her coaching role on Season 8 of NBC’s The Voice with a multi-episode arc on ABC’s Nashville, according to

Aguilera is set to play Jade St. John, a chart-topping pop princess who yearns to unleash her inner twang on a country record — and might finally get the opportunity during a two-night stand in Music City.

The “Dirrty” singer returns to the panel of NBC’s smash singing competition on Feb. 23; she has not been part of The Voice‘s coaching lineup since taking a leave of absence to give birth to her daughter Summer Rain after Season 5.

Excited to see Aguilera spread her wings (and soar) on Nashville? Which characters should Jade befriend (or dislike)? Sound off in the comments!

  7. Rose says:

    This fine young lady is such a talent. I watch her every week on The Voice when she is on. Great advice, lots of love and such class. I never watch when Gwenyth Paltrow or Shakers is on. They don’t add any substance like Ms. Aguilera. I stopped watching Nashville last season but I will start again.

    She is a great singer, I think she’ll do Country justice. Good luck!

    There are three voices I never miss out when they do great things. Streisand, Whitney and Aguilera! I’ll give this show a shot if she is making an appearance! I hope she promotes on The View when the time comes!

    I used to hate Xtina back in the Dirrty days but she won me over with The Voice and her last album Not Myself Tonight. I am now an unbreakable flower and feeling the empowerment. Us women are doing it for ourselves!!!

  12. Ceres says:

    Come 2 Brazil

  13. Martha Sleyha says:

    Christina is such a talented young lady, the best set of pipes in the music business and now she’s taking over TV. Me and my husband watch The Voice religiously when she coaches, although neither of us are a big fan of Gwyn or Shakeor.
