This news is bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S!). Okay, it's actually pretty spot on as reality news goes. The Voice is getting some new blood next season so that Christina Aguilera can rest up during her pregnancy. The eighth season of the hit singing competition is set to begin filming in June.
Christina has always traded off seasons with Usher and Shakira, but now she'll be making room for everyone's favorite hollaback girl. I have "no doubt" this newbie will be a great addition to the competition (whoa, that was bad.).
So the big question is, who will round out the judges’ panel? While rumors run rampant, I can say that there will likely be two seats filled. Why, you ask? It appears that longtime Idol fixture and judge Randy Jackson will be transitioning into a mentor role. He certainly has the credentials, and the contestants would surely benefit from his knowledge.
