Do You Know How Much Christina Aguilera Is Being Paid For “The Voice”?


The Voice format was also being shopped to CBS, which would balk at the high production and acquisition costs. Telegdy did not: “I was willing to pay a premium.” In those early days, the cost per hour was $1.5 million. By the time it jelled, the number was at $2.3 million, more than the network would pay to license a first-year hourlong (about $2 million). Knowledgeable sources say celebrity coach Aguilera is pulling down more than $225,000 per hour; the other coaches — Levine, Shelton and Green — are getting about $75,000 each. The story reveals how the execs wanted talent who could actually perform and had current musical credibility.
