Christina Aguilera makes more than all of her fellow fella Voice coaches put together: The Hollywood Reporter reports that Xtina pulls in $225,000 per Voice episode, while Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine take away $75,000 a piece. Take that, the gender wage gap. Their story also says John Mayer was originally considered as a coach, and next season, the blind auditions will likely jump from two episodes to five or six.

Xtina and Adam have "Moves Like Jagger": The rival coaches, who claim all that "tension" are just signs of fun, friendly competition, will make good on that claim and perform Maroon 5's new single together on the June 21 episode of The Voice. Christina is also featured on the studio version of the single, which, like all the Voice performances, will be available on iTunes after the episode.

Blake Shelton on Leno: Blake Shelton is having a great summer. Not only is he a newlywed, but his job as a coach on The Voice has opened him up to a whole new fanbase. I say that because I went from not really knowing who he is, to considering him my favorite Voice coach. He's just so down to earth and nice! Watch him be down to earth and nice while talking his beauty pageant past, his wedding attire, and of course, how much he loves The Voice.

Preview Cee Lo's New Puppet Talk Show, Talking to Strangers: Blake may be having a great summer, but Cee Lo is having a great year. And he's continuing that great year with his new show for FUSE, which, as far as I can tell, is a mixture of interviews, musical performances and segments involving puppets. Talking to Strangers premieres June 22.
