X17 has learned exclusively that not only do the producers of The Voice plan to replace Christina Aguilera for season three of the show (sheâ€™s under contract for season two) â€“ they already have a replacement in mind!
Itâ€™s Lady Gaga!
Our source close to the show tells us:
- â€Everybody saw how great Lady Gaga was as a guest judge on â€˜So You Think You Can Dance,â€™ so theyâ€™re trying to get her to replace Christina for season three.â€
Ouch! But what about Gaga's busy schedule? Says our source ...
- "Producers think they'll be able to lock her down for the third season. The show should be even bigger by then, and they know she's an artist who really cares about young artists and the work they do."
X17 reported exclusively Monday that producers were unhappy with Aguileraâ€™s lack of participation on season one and want to replace her for season three. She is under contract for season two of the hit NBC show.
NBC denies Christina is leaving the show telling us, "There is absolutely no truth to the rumor." Aguilera and Gaga's reps have not returned request for comment.
Aguilera reportedly made $225,000 per episode for the show.
