No wonder Usher agreed to an emotional sit-down with Oprah! He wanted America to remember what a handsome, sexy dad he is before (allegedly) taking a coach’s spot on The Voice! Smart man. According to Us Weekly, an inside source reports that the “Scream” singer and “Hips Don’t Lie” chanteuse are set to take over for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera after the show’s third season this fall. As for how Shakira should prepare to join the ratings giant…nope, she doesn’t have to do a single thing to shimmy back in our hearts. She’s been there the entire time! Shakira, Shakira!
While the rumor is merely gossip at this point, we think it adds up. Cee Lo is currently developing a sitcom with NBC, while Christina has been vocal about the intensity of the show’s schedule, telling Ryan Seacrest just last week that she had initially thought the show would be “kind of like a side project.” As Xtina explained on Ryan’s KIIS-FM show, “[I thought], ‘It’ll keep me close to my son in L.A. I don’t have to travel. Then it kind of took off, and there goes my free time!” No word yet as to whether Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will stay put, but they probably will. We mean…they get to work alongside Shakira. What could they possibly have going on that’s more important?
