In addition to The Voice results from last night comes the news that Christina Aguilera will be returning for the fifth season this fall, according to reports.
Cee Lo Green is looking to make a comeback as well.
Aguilera and Green, who starred on the first three seasons, will replace their Season 4 replacements, Usher and Shakira, in the coming season.
“Shakira wants to take a season off to take care of the baby,” says a source. “Usher is doing a movie, so he couldn’t do Season 5 if they wanted him to.”
Blake Shelton and Adam Levine will remain firmly in their spinning seats, the insider added, while Usher and Shakira may also return one day.
Aguilera first announced her decision to part ways with the franchise back in September 2012, telling the media that her departure was “bittersweet.”
“I so enjoy being a coach to my team on The Voice [and] at this point in season three, all of us coaches have truly bonded,” she said at the time.
“When me and Adam are on breaks on set, you know, we’re writing profanity with my red lipstick all over Blake’s trailer while he’s napping inside.”
“It’s like we have definitely become like brother and sister,” she said.
“We goof around and play around. I’m going to miss it.”
Looks like she won’t miss it much longer.
Aguilera, who released her latest album Lotus during her absence, said, “We’re artists first,” she said. “In order to remain great coaches and to stay relevant.”
“We have to go out and we have to still tour, see our fans one-on-one. I have to feel creatively fulfilled in order to do my job as a coach and be on that show.”
Excited for Christina’s comeback?
