Looks like your favorite celebrity panel is breaking up, kids! The Hollywood Reporter is.. er.. reporting that both Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are leaving the vocal reality show.
The NBC smash hit is currently in it’s third season, but after contract negotiations failed to show enough money to half of the judging panel, Cee Lo and Christina have apparently decided that they won’t be returning after this season wraps.
The show is currently in its third season with a fourth scheduled to begin in mid-February and will have the return of both season one and two winning coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and rumor has it they have some big names joining them.
According to multiple sources, R&B sensation Usher and our favorite pseudo-stripper Shakira are set to be the ones filling the newly vacant seats.
Representatives for the show and for the two exiting judges have yet to comment on the manner, but insiders are saying that the deal is all but inked.
What are your thoughts on the judges shake up? We’re not too excited about Shakira joining the cast, but Usher could make some pretty interesting choices!
