    It was announced that Christina Aguilera will return for Season 5 of The Voice after taking Season 4 off to promote her album Lotus, which tanked and which she did not tour in support of. With Xtina's return, that means that Shakira is out, with the Latina dynamo saying she is leaving after one season as a coach to work on her new album and to focus on motherhood, though Shakira is now expected to be back in mid-season for the sixth cycle.

    Shak, who gave birth to son Milan (dad is boyfriend Gerard Pique) back in January, said, "I'm not going to be able to do next season because I have to get back to my motherhood and also get back to the studio, the recording studio, to finish my album, the one that I started working on before I had to deliver a baby and before I took this gig with The Voice."

    She is working on her eighth album, which we are stoked for. But she did not rule out the possibility of ever returning to the show, saying, "You never know, I might come back!"

    We'll see!

    Will you be watching Season 5 with Xtina returning? Or did you like Shakira better, The Voice watchers?
