Christina Aguilera just announced some exciting news.

The Grammy-award winning singer is launching her very own residency, "Christina Aguilera: The Xperience," at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

The 16-show concert series will kick off Friday, May 31, 2019, and continue until Oct. 5, 2019.

"The Xperience is going to be my most ambitious show yet," the singer said in a press release. "Getting to perform in this adult playground we call Las Vegas is inspiring me to bring forth all of my talents in a mind-blowing theatrical experience — song, dance, visuals and uninterrupted high energy."

"For years I have been collecting ideas and concepts that have yet to be implemented on my stages, and Las Vegas is the perfect opportunity for me to collectively showcase my artistry," she said.

Aguilera shared social posts promoting "The Xperience" and spoke about the concert series during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Tuesday.

During her chat with DeGeneres, the singer, who just wrapped her 2018 Liberation Tour, revealed that the idea for the residency has been a few years in the making.

She said her son Max, 11, and daughter Summer, 4, really enjoyed last year's tour, but this will be more convenient for their family.

"It will be a little easier with the kids," she said on the one-stop location. "It's less full-on travel."

“I’m a mama bear,” Aguilera continued. “I like to take care of crew around me. I love my kids, I believe in routines. If they’re happy, I’m happy, but I had to get back to my heart and my soul and my fans and what I love to do best."

"I still want to see my fans all over and in Europe and everything, but how much easier for everyone to just come to one place and fill the venue with fantasy and love and excitement," she added.

She also posted a teaser for the upcoming tour, wearing a jewel-encrusted mask on her social account.

Tickets for the "Xperience" tour go on sale Saturday, Feb. 2.
