"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, NBC's alternative programming head, 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."
First-time coach Gwen Stefani, who replaced Aguilera this season while she went on maternity leave, will not return for Season 8, which will premiere in early 2015.
