The competition on NBC's The Voice always heats up as the show and its teams head into the live performances. After the knockout rounds, the coaches' teams are down to five amazing singers each and there's so much talent on each squad that it's really anyone's game. But I think it's pretty obvious that Christina Aguilera is the best coach on The Voice . The 34-year-old singer/songwriter came back after taking a season off to have her baby daughter and Aguilera hasn't missed a beat — just look at the folks she assembled in Season 8, like singers Rob Taylor, Lexi Davila, India Carney, Ariel "Sonic" Valle, and Kimberly Nichole. Christina knows what's up.
"With different coaches, you get different flavors and different styles and different talent that come on the show," Aguilera told Collider in February. "It’s great that you can share and feel proud of somebody that you’ve supported through this journey, which is crazy and it’s a lot of work for them, and you get to see what they go through." And Aguilera knows how to work her singers and make sure they're ready for the final rounds. Sure, a member of Team Christina hasn't been crowned winner just yet, but I believe it'll happen soon — perhaps even this season.
Here's why Aguilera is The Voice's best coach and why she'll have a winning singer soon enough:
She Knows Her Fellow Coaches Well
And can do killer impersonations of them, too. Most of all, she knows their strengths and weaknesses.
She's So Enthusiastic For Her Singers
Aguilera is also not afraid to dance it out.
She Teaches Her Team to Make The Other Coaches' Songs Better
Maroon 5's "Animals" never sounded better.
She Gives Great Advice While Working With the Celebrity Advisers
Nick Jonas + Xtina = So much knowledge right there.
She Has The Respect Of The Other Coaches
They know she knows exactly what she's doing.
Aguilera can push all that other stuff aside and focus on what really matters: The music.
She Can Turn That Chair With Style
Because Xtina knows what she wants when she hears it.
She's Super Competitive
Do not mess with Mama when she comes to play.
She Inspires Team Spirit
Aww. The team that selfies together, wins together.
And She's Like A Proud Mama With Her Budding Superstars
But now the question remains: Can this amazing coach finally get her win?
