NBC Confirms Return of All Six Judges to THE VOICE in 2014

After yesterday's reports that The Voice would be bringing back all six of its judges next season, the news has been confirmed by NBC. The Hollywood Reporter quotes the network's Paul Telegdy, who says:

"We locked in a plan several months ago to have the outstanding Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green rejoin Blake and Adam for cycle 5, and we're pleased to announce that the original four coaches are going to be back together in the fall. They're the reason this show was launched so strong for the first three cycles and we owe them a debt of gratitude. And after careful consideration of everyone's schedules for next spring, we are excited to be returning the current cycle of judges - Shakira and Usher along with Blake and Adam - for cycle 6, which will premiere after the Winter Olympics."

This 'rotation' of judges means that Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green will return alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for season 5 in the fall -- while Usher and Shakira will take season 6 in the spring of 2014.

This news comes just two days after Shakira's half-truth confirmation to E! News that she would officially be leaving the show in the fall.

"It was a hard decision for me to make," she said yesterday. "...I'm really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me. 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."

Fans have sounded off, proving that replacement judges Shakira and Usher were welcome additions, and created a fresh rapport on the show, which hit an all-new ratings high in April.

Now that The Voice has officially chosen to rotate its judges, what do you think? Are two 'teams' stronger than one?
