Usher Is Ready to Return to “The Voice”


R&B singer Usher couldn’t be any happier to be returning to NBC’s “The Voice” for another season.

The Confessions singer will be joining Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Shakira in the red swivel chairs for another competitive season on the singing contest.

“You make investments in these artists, these talents,” Usher told Extra. “And there’s something that can happen that’s positive… I’m excited about the potential of what’s going on to happen, the new ideas that’ll just kind of come up. I’m shocking myself a lot of time cause I don’t know what I’m doing when I’m in there. I just kinda go with what I feel.”

Although he’s excited to be return to the show, he’s especially happy that Blake Shelton did not win again last season. “Yeah, at some point this s**t is ridiculous. Like, you can’t keep winning… really great to see Adam come in and have that moment to kind of rekindle that fire that he had in the beginning.”

“The Voice” season premiere is Feb. 24 on NBC.
