Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are returning to the reality competition The Voice for the fifth season, NBC has confirmed.
In spring of 2014, Shakira and Usher will return again to the show for the sixth season, with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine staying on for both the fall and spring seasons.
“We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle five, and we’re pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall,” Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC said.
He added: “They’re the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles and we owe them a debt of gratitude. And 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 six, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics.”
