Los Angeles: Singer Christina Aguilera will again be one of the coaches when vocal competition series "The Voice" returns for a second season, NBC announced Thursday.

"Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of `The Voice` this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning," Paul Telegdy, executive vice president for Alternative Programming at NBC and Universal Media Studios, said in a statement.

Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are the programme`s other coaches.

Aguilera, a five-time Grammy winner, was paid $225,000 per episode for the inaugural season of "The Voice", while her three colleagues received $75,000 each.
