Well, we told you this was coming.
The band is officially back together at NBC's The Voice, as Cee Lo Green will be returning to the program, joining Christina Aguilera in returning to the judging chairs they vacated before the start of the show's fourth season. They will be "replacing" Shakira and Usher, who are going to sit this one out.
However, as you can tell by the quotes I put around replacing, Shakira and Usher will be coming back for the sixth season, which is currently schedule to launch after the 2014 Olympics conclude. Apparently Levine and Shelton will be their co-hosts that season.
"We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle five, and we're pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall," said Paul Telegdy, NBC president of alternative and late night programming. "They're the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles, and we owe them a debt of gratitude. And after careful consideration of everyone's schedules for next spring, we are excited to be returning to the current cycle of judges -- Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam -- for cycle six, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics."
