Christina Aguilera will return to “The Voice” this season when it starts airing this September, as entertainment sites revealed. Together with Christina Aguilera are Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine. The four judges had always the chemistry and rapport when they do the show.
Meanwhile, rival TV reality singing competitions, American Idol and X Factor USA are having major changes in their panel of judges. For American Idol, only host Ryan Seacrest is certain to return for the next season, but there are still no confirmation as to who among Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Keith Urban would be replaced or retained for the show. Randy Jackson had begged of for the next season already.
Rumors are circulating that an all alum panel would be selected; another is that Justin Bieber may be one of those being considered.
On the other hand, X Factor USA, under Simon Cowell’s leadership has confirmed that Demi Lovato would be returning, together with singer, Kelly Rowland and Mexican Paulina Rubio. It is an eclectic group, which viewers would surely find entertaining. It can be remembered that Simon Cowell previously came from American Idol.
With the three reality TV singing competitions ready, who would emerge the winner in viewership? Would American Idol be able to get back its immense audience? It still continues to head the pack at a narrow margin. Who would be the succeeding judges? Would they be able to reverse the course of the declining ratings?
As of this date, there are still no confirmed American Idol judges for Season 13.
What about X Factor USA and The Voice? Would they continue to surge forward and overcome American Idol?
Check back later for updates, as the race is set to go off.
