Christina Aguilera has officially won her swivel seat back!!
Shakira unfortunately will not be returning to The Voice next season, as prior speculations have now been confirmed by both the Colombian singer herself as well as host Carson Daly.
The reason? As we could imagine, Shakira has had a hard time balancing her coaching and her new-born babe, but admits that while her baby is obvi a priority, leaving The Voice was not an easy decision for her to make.
She explained her choice, saying:
"It was a hard decision for me to make, because I'm really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me. And I really enjoyed The Voice, but I also have a musical career and I'm also a mother now and my poor baby's so tired flying such long distances. He already has more miles than any pilot. So I think I have to give him a little break, and we'll see what happens in the future."
Her baby’s home is in Barcelona, so flying back and forth from there to El Lay would definitely be some hardcore milage for a newborn!! While we’ll miss the seksi hip-shaking Shakira, we totes support her continuing her music career and taking care of her adorbs little man!!
Carson Daly reports that the cast is thrilled to have Xtina back, and said:
"We're all excited. She helped launch the show, and like we've said with all of our coaches, this isn't their day jobs. They're not celebrity judges, they are real artists and they have to tour and it's great to have her come back into the fold."
We’re mainly excited to see what else Christina has in store for Adam Levine, LOLz!!
However, there’s still been no word on the fate of Usher!!
Do U think he’ll be back??
