Tv - The Voice Shake-up Confirmed - Christina Aguilera And Cee Lo Cee-lo Green To Return

U.S. Tv bosses have confirmed reports Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will be returning to their spinning chairs for the fifth season of hit talent show The Voice.

Green announced he'd be juggling an ongoing residency in Las Vegas with his return last month (Apr13), while sidekick Aguilera, who joined the Forget You singer in sitting out of the current fourth season of the show, has been rumoured to be coming back for weeks.

And now Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at Nbc, has confirmed the news, stating, "We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green rejoin Blake (Shelton) and Adam (Levine)... and we're pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall.

"They're the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles and we owe them a debt of gratitude."

Telegdy has also confirmed that Shakira and Usher, who replaced Aguilera and Green this season, will be back next year (14).

He adds, "After careful consideration of everyone's schedules for next spring, we are excited to be returning the current cycle of judges - Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam - for cycle 6, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics."

Shakira announced she'd be stepping down from the show earlier this week (beg13May13) to spend more time with her family and record a new solo album.
