Shakira fans, you can stop worrying.
There was plenty of chatter about the Colombian beauty’s continued participation (or lack thereof) in “The Voice” after reports leaked that former coach Christina Aguilera had signed a contract to return to the NBC hit for this fall’s Season 5, after taking a season off.
A new report from Entertainment Weekly claims that Shakira and fellow newbie judge Usher will be returning to the program, as well as original coach Cee Lo Green (who also sat this season out). According to EW, the 2013 fall season will see the show’s original coaching lineup reunited, with Aguilera and Green taking their seats next to series mainstays Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
For next spring’s Season 6, the show will flip back to its current coaching panel, with NBC said to be at work finalizing deals with Shakira and Usher. Host Carson Daly will also be around full-time, as if there was ever any doubt.
Are you glad that “The Voice” will continue to work with all of its coaches, rather than letting any go?
