It's a good thing The Voice has such fierce ratings, because the talent judging the show is crazy well paid! Show host Carson Daly reportedly rakes in $40K an episode, and that's the low end! Occasional judges Shakira scored around $12 million for her season, or $375,000 per episode and Usher got $7 million, or $218,750 per episode.
Regular judges get a pretty penny too: Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine reportedly each roll in $6 million, or $187,500 per episode, while Christina Aguilera is winning with $10 million a season, or $312,500 per episode. Let's hope those viewer numbers stay up!
