When Usher first joined The Voice mainstream media reported that Usher's stint was temporary so Cee Lo Green could focus on his residency in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile the not so mainstream media suggested Cee Lo was being forced out permanently because of a looming sex scandal [click here if you missed that].
Looks like the underground may have been at least half right...
From The Post
Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green could soon be fighting to get their judging jobs back on “The Voice.”
The singers’ giant red chairs are being filled for the upcoming fourth season by Colombian sensation Shakira and R&B star Usher — a move at first believed to be just temporary.
But now NBC says it hasn’t decided who will be invited back for future seasons. “Once you are a coach, you are a coach,” Paul Telegdy, the network’s head of alternative programming, told The Post yesterday.
“That has been our philosophy with these guys. Do we envision [Usher and Shakira] serving on multiple seasons? Absolutely.”
