Christina Aguilera returning to "The Voice" for season 8

"The Voice" is remixing its coaching panel again for its next season.

Christina Aguilera will be back for the competition's eighth installment next year, NBC announced Tuesday, joining Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams.

This season is Williams' first on "The Voice," while Shelton and Levine have been with the show since it began. Aguilera, who had a baby girl earlier this year and last appeared as a coach on season 5, will take the seat currently held by Gwen Stefani.

"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 night programming for NBC Entertainment, 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."

Other previous "The Voice" coaches have included Usher, Shakira and CeeLo Green.

The show is currently airing its seventh season Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.
