The Voice Shake-Up: Usher and Shakira to Replace Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green?

by at . Comments

The Voice Season 3 just got underway, but is there already a casting shake-up in the works for Season 4? According to a new report, at least, there may well be:

Usher and Shakira are replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Alleged insiders say Shakira and Usher would take the place of Christina and Cee Lo alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton at the end of the current season.

Earlier this month, Aguilera opened up to Ryan Seacrest about the show, admitting she once viewed her job as a coach on The Voice "kind of like a side project."

"[I thought], 'It'll keep me close to my son [Max, 4] in L.A. I don't have to travel," the Grammy winner said. "Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!"

The Voice sources say Christina will use her break from the program to focus on tours and promotional duties surrounding the release of her new album, Lotus.

Christina Aguilera's "Your Body", the first single from the upcoming record, is already out. Green, for his part, is currently working with NBC on a new show.

The rumor comes just as speculation surrounding American Idol's revolving door ends: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban will join Randy Jackson and Mariah Carey as judges.

What do you think? Should Usher and Shakira join The Voice?

I think The Voice did a great job finding the new coaches for season 4. Usher and Shakira are both really talented and they will add some new dynamics to the show. All my officemates at DISH are happy Adam and Blake are returning though. The chemistry between the judges has made the current blind auditions a lot of fun to watch. I’ve been busy with class at night so I’m watching them on Prime Time Anytime on my Hopper DVR. It automatically records all the prime time shows on the four major networks for me. It’s sad to see Cee Lo and Christina take a break but it will be fun to see the show with some new coaches.


@lucyricardo you are crazy.Usher is better than celo and shakira is huge globally.Shakira will bring ratings,the spanishliss..and hispanic viewers.Shakira has sold more albums worldwide than xtina,adam,celo or blake.


After her antics last year towards Tony Lucca & then kicking off Jesse who was her best singer I felt Christina shoulda been gone. How can anyone trust her to coach & help an artist develop their talent if she is full of jealousy


P.S. Love Christina! She beautiful and has a rare voice -- very, very talented.


Usher is okay but not enough personality. As for Shakira, I cannot stand her. Yeah, let's give her a regular TV gig so she can run her mouth off more about our country. She's nothing but a cheap whore who should be glad she's allowed in this country at all.


I'm with you, Jenni...Christina has to go. How do these young hopefuls think Christina can help manage their music careers when she can't even manage her own weight???


That FAT HO needs to go! That FAT HO needs to go! I refuse to vote for anyone on her team b/c I don't want that disgusting fat b*tch to win. She is so rude to the other judges and the other contestants. She's NOT all that. She hasn't done s*hit in like a decade. Bye bye Xtina!


Love cee lo.but hate christina.she is awful and not sexy.shakira is a nice choice.




Hells no Christina's got it goin on!
