The reason behind this change up NBC says, ” the new additions (judges) are part of a plan by NBC and producers to develop an ongoing tent of talent for The Voice that can be mixed and matched as needed.”
It makes sense given that these superstar judges also have careers they’re pursing. Xtina’s upcoming album Lotus will be dropping November 13th and she’ll be going on tour (YES!). While Cee Lo is producing new music and working on a scripted comedy series about his life for NBC.
Being a fan of The Voice, I’m excited to see how Shakira and Usher will blend into the show along with how they get along with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton! Can anyone imagine the types of singers Shakira will pick for her team? I can’t.
