The two singers are out as judges on NBC’s musical reality competition series “The Voice.”
Us Weekly reports that Usher is out because he’s focusing on his acting career.
A source tells the magazine that “Usher is doing a movie, so he couldn’t do season five if they wanted him to.”
So what’s the role? We’ve reported it here before! The R&B superstar will play Sugar Ray Leonard in “Hands of Stone,” which also stars Robert DeNiro.
As for Shakira, she’s out for personal reasons.
“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 told E! News. “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.”
