After the addition of Shakira and Usher to the fourth season of ‘The Voice,’ NBC was forced to make some decisions about the fate of the next two seasons of the show, and they’ve finally come to a conclusion: Shakira, Usher and Cee Lo will all be returning!
Shakira, Usher and Cee Lo Are All Returning To ‘The Voice’
The fifth season of The Voice, which premieres in the fall, will reunite all four original judges: Cee Lo, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton, Entertainment Weekly confirms. The season five reunion of the original judges means that Usher and Shakira will not be appearing on the show. However, the pair are confirmed to come back for the sixth season of The Voice, premiering in the fall. Usher and Shakira will be joined by Adam and Blake again for the sixth season.
Along with Cee Lo, Christina will also be returning to The Voice for the fifth season! With the constant changes on the judging panel, Voice producer Mark Burnett explained why the changes are necessary:
Everybody can’t coach for life because when you have people with current recording in the game, this is not their job. Their job is their fans and making music and being live, and so we knew from the beginning that this would happen, and we’ve had six coaches. They all have another life and their schedules.
