Fans of NBC’s ‘The Voice’ received some news today that may change the landscape of the show. The show confirmed that Colombian bombshell Shakira and hip-hop star Usher will be joining the judging panel in the show’s fourth season replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo who will be taking a break in order to focus on individual projects. Christina will be touring in support of her upcoming new album and Cee-Lo is working on a sitcom.

If you’re attached to the show and the judging panel, no need to fret. The two will be back for season five. The chairman of NBC entertainment, Robert Greenblatt said: “The addition of these popular iconic artists continues the tradition established by Christina, Cee-Lo, Adam and Blake. Doing two back-to-back cycles of this show requires a tremendous amount of time, and we are happy to accommodate the commitments made by Christina and Cee-Lo.”

Christina also commented on the situation, stating: “Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take season four off, allowing me to support my music that my fans have been waiting for.”

Season Four of ‘The Voice’ airs this coming spring on NBC.


  1. I am new to developing internet sites and I was wanting to know if having your
    site title related to your content really that important?
    I notice your title, “SHAKIRA & USHER JOIN THE VOICE AS NEW JUDGES – POPGoesCULTURE ” does appear to be
    spot on with what your blog is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content
    descriptive and based more around site branding.
    Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any help would be
    greatly valued.

  2. Hey! My name is Layne and I really just wanted to say your web site is awesome!
    It’s funny simply because I use to have a blog website that practically had an identical url: mine was only a few letters different. Anyways, I’m a big
    supporter of your blog and if you ever want a guest write-up make sure you email me
    at: I love writing!

    • Hey Clyde,

      Thank you so much for the kind words. We’re glad you enjoy the stories we write about! We are looking to branch out and have guests contributors in the coming new year. We’ll definitely be in touch. Thanks for reaching out to us. Great minds think a like 😉

  3. Howdy. I’m sorry to bother you but I happened to run across your blog and discovered you are using the exact same theme as me. The only problem is on my website, I’m battling to get the design and style looking like yours.
    Would you mind emailing me at: so I can get this
    figured out. By the way I have bookmarked your web-site: and
    will be visiting frequently. Thanks!
