It’s a big couple of weeks for pop singing sensation and Grammy winner, Christina Aguilera. First, she returned to the chair as one of the celebrity musical judges on the hit NBC series, The Voice. Christina had taken a break from the reality singing competition after the birth of her daughter for season 6 and 7, but is now back and ready to make “Team Christina” a winner in the all new season 8 which kicked-off on Monday night.
But in addition, as previously reported, Aguilera is set for a guest star story arc on ABC’s Nashville and is getting ready to shoot her scenes next week.
Christina told The Hollywood Reporter on her decision to act on the primetime soap opera: “I am excited to try something different, as I do think in life, and in music, experience just adds to the creative process.”
Aguilera went on to share this about her new Nashville character: “I can say my character is a successful pop singer who desperately wants to move into the country world, as that is her true passion. But she is caught between her passion and what the label wants her to do.”
However, Christina’s upcoming TV role seems to be just the tip of the iceberg for the superstar: “I have started to venture into all aspects of the business, still with my focus on music, but acting and now even producing TV. We just sold our idea to ABC Family so it’s an exciting time for me.”
