The Voice Judges: Returning For Season 3 ... This Fall!

by at . Comments

All four judges on NBC's hit singing competition series The Voice will return to the NBC hit for a third season that will air in the fall instead of the winter.

Christina Aguilera previously agreed to return for $10 million next season. Now, Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are back on board too.

All with substantial pay raises, according to those close to the negotiations. Green, Levine and Shelton will see their pay roughly doubled to $6 million.

Insiders say Levine had been holding out because of a scheduling issue. He and his band, Maroon 5, have an album nearing completion, and tour dates and promotion of the new record had to move to accommodate the show's move to the fall.

It looks like that worked out, though, and not a moment too soon for NBC.

It averages an 8.4 rating/21 share in the crucial 18-49 demographic and 21.3 million viewers overall. It owes that average largely to huge ratings for the Season 2 premiere, debuting after the Super Bowl, but nevertheless, it's a success.

Moving to the fall would have the show, now a mid-season hit, airing at the same time of year as Fox's The X-Factor ... and being a lot more entertaining.

I gotta admit, I watch this show mainly for the judges. I love their competitiveness, and I find the fun bickering hilarious! Especially between Adam and Blake. My only problem with Christina and Cee-Lo towards the end of the second season is their lack of interest. They appear to either be tired or disconnected, but just not altogether there. But as long as Adam and Blake keep up the humor, I'll continue to watch!
