Unlike other reality talent competitions, NBC’s ‘The Voice’ is not feeling the need to shake things up, but rather has decided to revisit the past by inviting Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera back as season 5 coaches.
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain firming entrenched with the show while Shakira and Usher will be given a one-season break to do other things.
The popular singing show has been killing it with the ratings since the series debuted during the 2010-11 season, much to the dismay of their sagging competitor ‘American Idol.’
New mom Shakira has been experiencing some serious mommy guilt, of late, and is looking forward to returning to Spain when the season wraps in June.
The announcement came today from Paul Telegdy, president of programming at NBC: “We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle 5, and we’re pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall.”
“They’re the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles and we owe them a debt of gratitude. And after careful consideration of everyone’s schedules for next spring, we are excited to be returning the current cycle of judges — Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam — for cycle 6, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics.”
