Christina Aguilera is the top paid judge of ‘The Voice,’ reports CTV.
The singer reportedly earns $225,000 per episode, compared to the $75,000 that Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton make.
That means that NBC is spending $450,000 on the judges alone, not including production or advertising costs. A little crazy, if you ask me!
The show has been a big success, though, pulling in over 10 million viewers per episode. I’m sure they are making the money back somewhere.
The winner of the show will get a $100,000 recording contact.
This proves my theory that being a reality singing show judge is the best thing you can do for your career. I mean, nobody remembers Aguilera flubbing the national anthem or getting a DUI – they all see her as a rich, successful TV judge now. Smart move.
