Christina Aguilera is making another return to “The Voice.”

Aguilera, who took a break during the show’s seventh season to welcome daughter Summer Rain Rutler in August, will be coaching alongside Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

“The Voice” host Carson Daly made the announcement on NBC’s Today show on Tuesday.

“We are excited to welcome Christina back to her red chair and can’t wait to see how she mixes things up among Adam, Blake and Pharrell, in what will be an incredibly competitive competition,” Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late programing at NBC, said in a statement. “These four talented artists are at the top of their game as musicians and as coaches. The mentoring is sure to be intense and the stakes will be high.”

Aguilera served as an original coach and took seasons four, six and seven off. During her off seasons, Colombian singer Shakira and No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani replaced the Grammy winner.

“The Voice” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
