Christina Aguilera Returning to The Voice for Season 5
Musical chairs, indeed. As The Voice continues through season 4, the big names who will fill the four coaches' chairs continue to rotate. An insider confirms to Us Weekly that Christina Aguilera will be returning for the fifth season of the hit NBC vocal competition, and Cee Lo Green is looking to make a comeback as well.
"Shakira wants to take a season off to take care of the baby," the source explained. "She has an option to come back too. And Usher is doing a movie, so he couldn't do season 5 if they wanted him to."
Aguilera first announced her decision to part ways with the franchise back in September 2012, telling E! News 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 backstage, 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 continued. "We goof around and play around. I'm going to miss it."
Aguilera, 32, released her album Lotus later that fall, and hinted at a possible return. "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 for me to then do my job as a coach and be on that show."
