She has a keen ear for superstar talent, and Christina Aguilera has thoroughly enjoyed her judging role on “The Voice.”

But during her interview on the “Today” show, the “Ain’t No Other Man” singer confessed that she hates cutting her contestants and sending them packing.

"Being on the hot seat to pick who goes home and who stays is so hard.... Sending people home is the worst thing in the world. So I'm glad to have America weigh in -- please help me choose 'The Voice!’”

As for her upcoming hiatus from the show to promote her new album Lotus, Christina explained, "I need a break to gain new experiences so I can come back and be an even better coach."
