THR is confirming that former Voice judges Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green are coming back to the popular NBC show for season five.
Apparently, all original judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Aguilera and Green will reunite this fall. Season four replacements, Shakira and Usher will return for season six, which is slated for a mid-season launch following the 2014 Winter Olympics.
“We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle five, and we’re pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC.
Telegdy went on to say, “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 to the current cycle of judges — Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam — for cycle six, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics.”
Season four of The Voice ends May 21.
Are you looking forward to Aguilera and Green returning to the show?
