May 16, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Shakira has confirmed that she won’t return to NBC’s "The Voice" for the show’s fifth season, soon after reports surfaced that Christina Aguilera is in talks to return to the show, reports E! Online.

"It was a hard decision for me to make, because I’m really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me," she said. "And I really enjoyed ‘The Voice,’ but I also have a musical career and I’m also a mother now and my poor baby’s so tired flying such long distances. He already has more miles than any pilot. So I think I have to give him a little break, and we’ll see what happens in the future."

Shakira gave birth to her son Milan in January.

There are also reports that Usher may not return to the show.


  1. Good descision which just means she has heart, and don’t only think about the money. Christina A would be a good substitute I think as well ! 🙂

  2. I follow you Magnus – It’s a good choice, and a good statement to send to the world and her fans. She inspires so many, and I think this will just make it better for image regarding image. I don’t wanna see Usher leave though – I think he’s such a good entertainer.
