According to Carson Daly, everyone is excited for the Xtina's return. He said, "We're all excited. She helped launch the show, and like we've said with all of our coaches, this isn't their day jobs. They're not celebrity judges, they are real artists and they have to tour and it's great to have her come back into the fold. There's a lot of moving parts, a lot of scheduling as you can imagine. The way this show shoots in a calendar, if you and I sat down and I laid it all out, you'd have to make decisions pretty early that take effect sometimes four or five or six months later. With these people's busy schedules, we make decisions. Plus, we're on twice a year now. The show's doing well, we think we'll be here for a while, so hopefully there will be a bunch of big name artists that might have a red chair in the future!"
