Shakira quits The Voice?


Shakira is reportedly leaving The Voice after one season and Christina Aguilera is making a return to the show.

The multi-lingual singer began a stint on the NBC programme this year but will not return after its fourth season, according to Deadline.

The current series finale will close in the United States on June 18.

Shakira gave birth to her first child on January 22 and got stuck straight into preparing for the talent programme.

At the moment the performing is juggling life as a mother with recording her eighth LP.

Now former judge Christina Aguilera is expecting to make a comeback to the singing contest.

She enjoyed the first three seasons but left last year to promote her new album Lotus, which came out in November 2012.

She is rumoured to be resuming her seat for a seven-figure salary similar to the one she was earning on her most recent season of the show.

Cee Lo Green took a sabbatical from the project produced by Mark Burnett at the same time Christina departed.

However it’s not clear with he will join her in reuniting with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

“Everybody can’t coach for life because when you have people with current recording in the game, this is not their job,” Mark said last year about the evolving panel. “Their job is their fans and making music and being live, and so we knew from the beginning that this would happen, and we’ve had six coaches. They all have another life and their schedules.”
