"I feel so thankful to have gotten back on the Blake Shelton show after three wins."
Christina Aguilera is back and ready to take down Blake along with fellow coaches Adam Levine and CeeLo Green when The Voice returns for its highly anticipated fifth season on Monday, Sept. 23. Shelton has now won three of the NBC reality hit's four seasons, a streak Adam is particularly focused on ending this cycle.
"I think he just wants to win to beat Blake at this point," Christina says of Adam in our exclusive Coach Chat. Adam playfully adds, "I don't even want to win. I just want him to lose." Oh, and he also calls Blake losing season five "a victory for the whole world!"
Though they get competitive on the show, it's clear that all four coaches genuinely like each other, with Christina, who sat out season four along with Cee Lo, saying, "It's been good to laugh with you guys. I genuinely missed that." Awww!
And it seems Adam missed Christina just as much as he gushes, "I think Christina is the best I've ever seen her in all ways. She's changed, but she's not. She's the same person."
But rest assured, you can still expect to see the playful banter between the coaches when they return to their spinning chairs, with Christina promising, "Not a thing has changed at all!"
The Voice's fifth season premieres Monday, Sept. 23 on NBC.
