Report: Christina Aguilera Returning for The Voice Season 5, As Shakira Leaves
The Voice is getting a little of its vibrato back.
Christina Aguilera will return as a coach in Season 5, according to The Wrap.
In turn, Shakira is vacating her swivel chair after one well-received spin on NBC’s hit talent competition, our sister site Deadline reports.
Aguilera coached hopeful singers in Seasons 1-3 but stepped away for the fourth cycle in order to promote her album Lotus. (Similarly, new mom Shakira is in the midst of producing her own next album.)
NBC made no mention of any Voice coaching changes at its upfront presentation to advertisers in New York Monday.
