Shakira and Usher reportedly returning for next spring's 'The Voice' season


By Reality TV World staff, 05/16/2013 

Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green's The Voice returns reportedly will be short-lived -- and so will the exits of Shakira and Usher.

Aguilera and Green will reportedly return as The Voice coaches for this fall's fifth season of the NBC reality singing competition, as previous reports have claimed, according to Entertainment Weekly.  However, their returns will only last one season and they will be replaced by Shakira and Usher -- who replaced Aguilera and Green on this spring's current-airing season of the show -- on next spring's sixth season of The Voice.

The Voice mainstays Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will reportedly be part of both seasons' coaching panels -- as they have since the show's first season.

"[The] strategy will help maintain both variety and continuity next season," according to EW.

Reports that Aguilera and Green would be returning for The Voice's fifth season had emerged earlier this week and been followed by Shakira's confirmation that she would not be part of the season and The Voice host Carson Daly's confirmation that Aguilera would be returning.

"I have to get back to my [new] baby and give him some love and dedicate some time to him and also to my new album that I'm working on currently," Shakira told Access Hollywood after Tuesday night's live results show.

However, she had left the door open for a possible return beyond The Voice's fifth season.

"You never know, maybe for the future -- maybe future seasons -- we'll see [if I come back]," she said.

In addition to confirming Aguilera's return and expressing his enthusiasm for the return of Green, who was reportedly close to finalizing a deal to return, Daly had also suggested Shakira's departure might not be permanent.

"I don't think that's the case. There's a lot of moving parts, a lot of scheduling as you can imagine. The way this show shoots in a calendar, if you and I sat down and I laid it all out, you have to make decisions pretty early that take effect sometimes four or five or six months later," he told E! News.

"With these people's busy schedules, we make decisions. Plus, we're on twice a year now."
