The Voice is an expensive show and Christina Aguilera is a very expensive coach to have on the show.
NBC head Paul Telegdy wasn’t turned off by the high production and acquisition costs of the show format for The Voice.
In the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Telegdy explains why he’s confident in the show saying, “I was willing to pay a premium.”
Cost per hour for the show is $2.3 million and THR sources say celebrity coach Christina is making more than $225,000.
As for Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine? They’re reportedly making a mere $75,000 each.
But that doesn’t mean you won’t be seeing all of them back for a second season!
All four coaches are expected to return and this time there will be more audition episodes and backstories of the contestants.
NBC also reportedly hopes to have a fall and spring series of The Voice for 2012-13.
