As reported here, with ‘Your Body’ beauty Christina Aguilera set to leave ‘The Voice’ for its 2013 spring season (though expected to return Fall 2013), NBC has enlisted the help of another Latin sex symbol to take her place – Shakira. The ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ hitmaker is readying a new LP, but now she will add ‘reality talent show’ judge to her ever-growing resume.
And, with word Cee Lo Green is expected to make an exit at this season‘s end as well, R&B veteran Usher will step in as his replacement. Still in heavy promotions of his 2012 project ‘Looking For Myself’, the crooner is undoubtedly looking for the T.V. opportunity to reestablish his force in the music industry.
The announcement follows his highly anticipated sitdown with talk show queen Oprah to detail his recent personal troubles (see: divorce from/custody battle with Tameka Foster).
