(LOS ANGELES) — Though Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are expected to return to the NBC singing competition in the fall, The Voice isn’t cutting ties with their replacements, Shakira and Usher.
Shakira has confirmed that she is leaving The Voice after the current season. There have also been reports that Usher will do the same, with Aguilera and Green reclaiming the chairs they occupied for the show’s first three seasons.
However, Entertainment Weekly states that while Aguilera and Green will indeed return to The Voice in the fall, NBC is finalizing deals with Shakira and Usher to rejoin Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for the spring 2014 season. That would obviously mean that Aguilera and Green would go on hiatus again.
Levine, Shelton and host Carson Daly will all be back for the next two seasons.
