Christina and Cee Lo 'Voice'-less?
Report: Usher and Shakira could be their permanent replacements
When it was announced, last September, that singers Shakira and Usher would pull up judging chairs to Season 4 of NBC's "The Voice," the arrangement was supposed to be temporary, allowing time for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green to reignite their music careers. However, a new New York Post report suggests that it could be the new order.
Paul Telegdy, the network's head of alternative programming, told the newspaper that he hasn't decided who will be invited back for Season 5. He added: "Do we envision [Usher and Shakira] serving on multiple seasons? Absolutely." In other words, Green and Aguilera could be forced to fight for their jobs back.
In a statement released in September, Green promised: "I will return for Season 5 and will be watching Season 4." Likewise, Aguilera talked about being able "to come back and offer even more to my team on 'The Voice' in the future."
The Post notes that Aguilera had been earning $225,000 per hour -- triple that of her fellow judges -- when the show premiered in April 2011. In addition, she has been embroiled in a nasty feud with fellow judge Adam Levine -- who, along with Blake Shelton, is staying put for Season 4.
Would you like to see Christina and Cee Lo, or Usher and Shakira, back for Season 5?
Season 4 of "The Voice" premieres Mon., March 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Oh, and Christinas' hair and make up are a cross between cheap hooker and tranny! WTF!
I'm curious to see how Usher and Shakira fair in Season 4. Their acceptance, or lack thereof, from avid followers of the show will be obvious pretty quickly as to whether they boost or deflate the 'air' during Season 4. The producers can then make a decision about Season 5. Despite his crazy clothes at times, Cee Lo's comments about the contestants seem somewhat sincere. I'm in the middle as far as him returning or not. Christina can stay away from the show entirely for all I care. She's a diva, takes any opportunity to showcase her own success and talent, and de-classes the show.
I would like to see Cee Lo back because i think he really mentored the contestants whereas Christina appeared to do her part half way and it appeared she either became jealous or flirted her buns off with the contestants. I did not care for her snubs to the Bieber and other guests who came on the show.
Christina came across as a Diva and a self centered person. The outfits were too tight or had stains on them and her all around look was cheesey.
let the 2 new ones have a chance....
christina does NOT pick the right singers and it shows. cee lo picks but then gives them crap songs to sing.
adam and blake have won the show tho the 1st winner bit the dust fast (adam) and not much out of blakes singer (juliet simms lost becuz of cee lo's choices). both give a better interest in their charges (blake takes them on tour with him)
drop the x10 itune vote. ....but then again, tweeners and younger teens vote - they have fast fingers.
