cee lo and xtina rejoining the voice

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."

the voice tribute

The opening minutes of 'The Voice' last night featured a poignant rendition of 'Hallelujah' with solos offered up by the coaches to honor the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut.

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera sang their parts in the moving tribute as the camera panned the group of 26 on choir risers who held cards with each of the names of the fallen displayed.

Large flickering candles banked the front of the stage for the touching performance that was done in a low light setting.  A similar tribute, by a children's choir, opened 'SNL' this past weekend - see that here.

The Voice mentor downsized from his previous 4,200 square foot rental which also sat above the Sunset Strip to the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom contemporary home with an open plan main living space, matte-finish hardwood floors and a retro-styled wood paneled wall.

The $18,000 a month house has a state-of-the-art kitchen with sky-light and a dining area that opens out to a terrace with plunge pool, spa, poolside cabana and a spectacular view.

cee lo green

New information has surfaced regarding recent sexual assault allegations leveled against 'The Voice' star Cee Lo Green, who stands accused of slipping a date rape drug into a woman's drink.

The alleged victim claims that the entertainer took her to a downtown L.A. restaurant in July and laced her drink with Ecstasy.  She claims she woke up laying naked in a bedroom with Cee Lo.

Police are investigating the case and will turn over their finding to the L.A. County District Attorney.

Those connected to Green say that he and the "victim" have known each other for some time.  The couple met in February 2012 at the Super Bowl and have seen each other on and off since.

Cee Lo has reportedly acknowledged that they both knowingly took Ecstasy and he claims they stayed up all night.  Green told police, "No one was unconscious."

In a subsequent phone conversation with the high profile entertainer, the "victim" claims she secretly taped Green apologizing several times for giving her Ecstasy, saying he thought it would improve their evening."

Green is sticking with his story.  He told TMZ yesterday, "Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else."
