The 'Your Body' singer admits calling time on her career as a mentor with the reality show is a "bittersweet" feeling.

Christina Aguilera has admitted she will miss Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine when she steps down from her coaching position on The Voice after the current season.

Last week, the 'Dirrty' singer and Cee Lo Green confirmed their departure from the show with Usher and Shakira coming in to replace the two stars.

The female singer told Us magazine that the feeling of leaving is "bittersweet" and the four coaches really bonded this year.

"I so enjoy being a coach to my team on The Voice [and] and at this point in season three, all of us coaches have truly bonded," she confessed.

She came to blows with Adam several times on the show, but admitted she will miss hanging out with the 'Moves Like Jagger' man.

"When me and Adam are on breaks backstage, you know, we're writing profanity with my red lipstick all over Blake's trailer while he's napping inside," she revealed. "It's like we have definitely become like brother and sister. We goof around and play around. I'm going to miss it."

Usher recently revealed that he can't wait to take over for season four in 2013 and praised the make-up of the show as it focused on the vocal talents of an artist.

Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera will release new single 'Your Body' on 4th November with fifth studio album 'Lotus' following on 13th November.
