Looks like Blake Shelton will be staying at home on NBC for a little while longer. NBC announced that The Voice will have a fourth and fifth season this week, but with some big changes… superstars Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green will take a break in the fourth season, but are expected to return for the fifth. Replacing them for a season will be Shakira and Usher. Blake and Adam Levine will remain as coaches throughout the next two seasons.
NBC will be sticking to two seasons a year of The Voice – so it may be some sad news hoping to see Blake on-tour next year.
“With the addition of Usher and Shakira as rotating coaches to join Christina, , Adam and Blake in the next cycle, we know that this incredibly addictive program will remain even more relevant as we move forward through this exciting season,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt said. “My hat is off to John de Mol, Mark Burnett, and everyone who produces this classy and highly entertaining show for us.”
The Voice’s third season is on-air now. What team do you think is the strongest so far? Do you think Team Blake has it in them to win the title for the second year in a row?
