Christina Aguilera is back in the red, swivelling chair of The Voice, USA. The platinum pop diva will be back for the eighth season, starting in early 2015, making the new line-up look suspiciously similar to the programme’s initial foursome.

In a series of tweets, the singer Cee-Lo Green has questioned the definition of rape after he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman.

CeeLo Green pleaded not guilty to the drug charges.

The case first came to the Los Angeles Police Department's attention in October of last year. It seems the incident occurred in mid-July last year when CeeLo Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, allegedly slipped a 33-year-old woman MDMA whilst they were having dinner, according to the LA Times. It seems they retired to her hotel room where police initially thought an assault took place.

Christina Aguilera & Cee Lo Green Are Back With A Vengeance In 'The Voice' Season Opener


Christina Aguilera Cee-Lo Green Blake Shelton Adam Levine

The quest to find America's next singing sensation is on, and we've got two familiar faces returning to the fifth season of The Voice to boot, as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green made their triumphant returns to the hit series. And now, with the show earning it's very first Emmy win, for 'Best Reality Competition,' the pressure was on for the season opener to deliver, and you better believe that it did.

Christina Aguilera
Christina was back, and arguably came away from the opening night with the best performer.

Season five's opening episode wasn't just a blast because we got to see Christina, Cee Lo, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton back together again, although admittedly that was pretty great, but more because the first round of acts were some of the best singers the show has ever had! Maybe it had something to do with the return of the Holy Alliance, or maybe it was to do with the night's 'Rock 'n' Roll' theme, who knows maybe the just put something in the water, but last night (23 Sept.) the blind auditions were out of this world.

Miss Universe Still Manages To Make It To Prime Time Television


Cee-Lo Green

There are so many oppressive contexts in which women's aesthetic beauty is continually made of prime importance across the world (each more vacuous than the last), that the Miss Universe competition is simply yet another outdated, redundant, and offensive parade.

This year's is the 61st Miss Universe Competition and judges include Cee Lo Green and Olympic gold medal winning beach volleyball player, Kerri Walsh Jennings, along with 8 others. It's an inordinately enormous event held at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas and will also feature performances from Train and Timomatic. According to Fox news, the contestants from countries all over the world have spent that past two weeks living together in Las Vegas, playing pranks on other hotel guests, taking painting lessons and being photographed. 

While women across the world are forced to compete for equal rights over their choices, careers and bodies, for women to compete with one another over their looks is offensive to all those whose freedom is compromised daily merely by being born female. Furthermore, the rules include that these women must be under the age of 27, unmarried and childless, all of which encourages ageism and of the devaluing of women once they've had children. Celebrating women and their bodies should have no restrictions, and furthermore should certainly not be in the context of a formulated competition, but on the grounds that every woman is worth celebrating.

The Voice Finale Sees Blake Shelton Protege Cassadee Pope Win


Blake Shelton Christina Aguilera Cee-Lo Green

It’s been drawing solid ratings but The Voice has largely slipped under the radar news-wise this year; nevertheless, the show drew to a close on NBC last night (December 18, 2012) with Blake Shelton’s protégé Cassadee Pope taking the prize.

Pope won the show over Scottish-native Terry McDermott and the bearded wonder Nicholas David, reports CBS, with a two hour marathon finale deciding who would walk off as the winner. Pope was stunned to win, dissolving into tears and getting out a hasty list of thank yous: "I'm feeling amazing, thank you for everyone who voted for me and all the fans and Blake, the producers, wardrobe, Carson, the band, and Christina, everybody” she gushed.

Pope got to perform with one of her idols in Avril Lavigne, and the Canadian was one of several stars who made a turn at the show’s prestigious finale. Rihanna, Bruno Mars, The Killers, Smokey Robinson and Peter Frampton were among the others who made an appearance during the two hours. Though Pope is the winner of this series, she won’t have long to relish her crown, with the fourth season of the show beginning as soon as March 25, 2013; it’ll be all change on the voice coach panel too, with Usher and Shakira replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green.

Christina Aguilera's New Album 'Lotus': Well, It's Better Than 'Bionic'!


Christina Aguilera Cee-Lo Green Blake Shelton

Christina Aguilera has really taken her time with albums over the last ten years so it's a nice surprise that her seventh effort 'Lotus' comes only two years after her mediocre record 'Bionic' - which is just as well because there's only so many times you can listen to a record without a single stand out hit to note. 

'Lotus' could prove to be different, however, with generally good reviews all round so far (at least compared with 'Bionic'). It was released last week on November 9th 2012 with 13 tracks though the 5-time Grammy winner has already released a deluxe version with four further tracks: 'Light Up the Sky', 'Empty Words', 'Shut Up' and a Martin Garrix remix of first single 'Your Body'; a track which has charted worldwide - it will never be a number one hit, but it is at least one of the most energised songs she has released in recent years. 

The album, which was recorded at her home studio, includes collaborations with Cee Lo Green and country singer Blake Shelton (former co-judges on the US version of reality show 'The Voice') as well as input from several new producers such as Mike Del Rio, Jamie Hartman, Aeon Manahan, Chris Braide, Supa Dups and Jason Gilbert.

Cee Lo Green Sexual Battery Allegations: Confession Allegedly Recorded?


Cee-Lo Green

Earlier this week reports were leaked that Cee Lo Green was being accused of sexual battery of a girl, after drugging her. Now, allegedly the girl says she has a recording of the singer admitting to, and apologising for, the crime. 

The reports of Cee Lo Green's alleged sex and drug attack on an unnamed girl have become more and more confusing, without any clarity one way or the other. TMZ reports many different arguments between Cee Lo and his people, and the woman accusing him of the attack. They report sources that refer to the woman's 'pre-text call', which was made to entice Cee Lo to admit to the crime, and recorded with that aim. Apparently, the tape refers to the drug being MDMA (ecstasy). Of course, Cee Lo's sources refute the claims, and on Wednesday he said "Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else." 

The whole case is really rather confusing and as yet there is definitely no clear cut confusion, but with some other reports in TMZ that say the woman contacted Cee Lo's lawyers asking for money- before going to police, chances are this may end up like the recent Britney Spears/Sam Lufti case- thrown out of court (if it ever even gets there). 

Forget You! Cee Lo Green Denies Sexual Battery Charges


Cee-Lo Green

Cee Lo Green is currently wanted by Los Angeles police following allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman, however the singer has come forward and shot down the claims saying he has nothing to do with the charges.

The singer and judge on the hit talent show The Voice is to be brought into police custody for questioning after a woman recently filed a police report with the LAPD claiming he sexual assaulted her. So far police have kept quiet on the woman’s identity and on the exact offences said to have happened, although it has been revealed that detectives have investigated a restaurant in Downtown LA where the incident is said to have taken place.

'The Voice' Recap: Has Christina Struck Gold With The Returning Dez Duron?


Christina Aguilera Cee-Lo Green Adam Levine

The US season of The Voice powered on through another weekend with spots on the teams becoming harder to come by and more and more decent singers falling by the wayside as a result. With Christina Aguilera having recently announced that she won't be appearing on the coaching panel next year, and nor will Cee-Lo Green, it looks like she's now got a strong chance to make a winning exit after managing to nab a much-improved Dez Duron from the other coaches to put him in her team of 16.

Remember the name Dez Duron? If you were following The Voice last season you might do; he gave up college to audition for the NBC program last time out only suffer the indignity of having no coaches turned towards him. Ouch. Nevertheless, he's come on strong this year and sounded the part, whilst the judges were in no doubt about his physical prowess even before turning round, thanks to screams from more besotted members of the audience.

There was another potential contender for a final place too, according to Rolling Stone, with 17 year-old Brandon Mahone heading over to Maroon 5's Adam Levine after impressing with a soulful voice that had all four coaches putting in an offer for him. Another of Levine's picks, Michelle Brooks Thompson impressed as well. With the knockouts due to begin soon, the competition is sure hotting up.


'The Voice' Recap: 17 Year-Old Brandon Mahone Is Pick Of The Bunch


Christina Aguilera Blake Shelton Adam Levine Cee-Lo Green

It's getting tighter and tighter as we get to the last "blind" rounds of The Voice in the USA. With a lot of the spots now taken, there were some good performers finding it a struggle on the latest edition of the show, although in spite of that there was still good news for a couple of standouts during the course of the NBC show.

Among the most impressive was 17 year-old Brandon Mahone, as well as leading female contenders Michelle Brooks-Thompson and Terisa Griffin. Whilst these first timers impressed, their stories were eclipsed by 22 year-old Dez Duron; Duron had dropped out of college to audition in the season last year but didn't manage to turn a single coach's chair. It was a different story this time for Duron though, the delighted performer seeing Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera battling for his attention. Ultimately he decided to join Team Christina.

As for the 17 year-old Mahone, it was Maroon 5's Adam Levine who proved most persuasive, telling the starlet after he'd belted out The Temptations' I Wish It Would Rain that "you seem to have studied what it is to be a performer from that era to the point where you felt like one of them ... it felt like you were just the next in line." They were words Mahone couldn't help but listen to and he'll be a threat as the weeks progress.


R. Kelly Makes History With 21st Soul Train Awards Nomination

R Kelly makes history with 21st nomination for the Soul Train Awards. He is now the most nominated act ever, reports CBS News.

R. Kelly's double nomination at this year's Soul Train Awards, makes him the most nominated act ever at the awards show. Kelly brings his career total to 21 nominations and is up for the Ashford & Simpson songwriter's award and album of the year. Two was enough to steal the headlines, but it's Usher that leads the way this year with five nominations, whilst Estelle/em>, Nas, Trey Songz and John Legend are also in the running for various awards. Posthumous nominations include Whitney Houston for best gospel inspirational performance and Amy Winehouse for best international performance. New Edition will receive a lifetime achievement award. The Soul Train Awards - hosted by Cedric the Entertainer - will be filmed on Nov. 8 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. The show will air Nov. 25 on BET and Centric.

R&B singer Usher will join pop singer Shakira as they fill in for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera during the spring cycle of singing competition series The Voice" NBC says. The move will give Green and Aguilera a break from the show's schedule to focus on other pursuits.

The Voice Swaps Christina Aguilera For Shakira


Shakira Christina Aguilera Usher Cee-Lo Green Maroon 5 Adam Levine Blake Shelton

The Voice is already securing it’s mentoring line-up for the forthcoming spring season in 2013, bringing in Columbian superstar Shakira in a straight swap for Christina Aguilera.


The show, which demolished The X-Factor USA in its season premiere, has also brought in Usher for Cee Lo Green, according to Entertainment Weekly. The new additions are part of NBC’s plan to develop an “on-going tent of talent” for the show, though Aguilera is likely to return after promoting her new album. Executive producer Mark Burnett said of the new line-up, “Having award-winning artists as coaches means they need to be able to tour…Whether in the red chair or on tour, our coaches have their chairs for life. This is exactly why, after three seasons, we needed to allow them to rotate out so they can get on the road amongst their fans. Meanwhile, we’re incredibly excited to have singular artists like Usher and Shakira joining the fold.” It’s probably a wise move by show bosses, who will be all too aware of the sinking ratings of The X Factor and American Idol, both of which have failed to come up with original concepts in recent years and relied too heavily on all-star judging names.


Country singer Blake Shelton and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine will continue on the spring season of The Voice.


Major Shake Up Revealed With Christina Aguilera Leaving 'The Voice'


Christina Aguilera Cee-Lo Green Shakira Usher Adam Levine Blake Shelton

We're only one week into the third season NBC's The Voice, but the network is already announcing changes and they involve the departure of Christina Aguilera, as well as fellow original judge Cee-Lo Green. This season will be the last that's seen of the pair, as there is a new Aguilera album, Lotus to promote and tour, whilst Green is taking time off to work on new music and a scripted comedy about his life.

In their place? None other than Colombian singing sensation Shakira and general R'n'B superstar Usher. Not bad, as replacements go. "We are thrilled to welcome Usher and Shakira to The Voice, " Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement reported by The Clicker. "The addition of these popular iconic artists continues the tradition established by Christina, Cee Lo, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Doing two back-to-back cycles of this show requires a tremendous amount of time, and we are happy to accommodate the commitments made by Christina and Cee Lo."

Those disappointed at the news need not fear, though. Both have indicated that they will be returning to the show once they've finished with their other projects. "By pursuing my first passion of music during the break, I am also able to come back and offer even more to my team on 'The Voice' in the future," Aguilera said in a statement, whilst Green commented "Thank you, NBC, for supporting my decision to take this season four hiatus! I will return for season five and will be watching season four."

The Voice: Usher, Shakira In: Christina, Cee-Lo Out

If you thought The Voice would rest on its laurels after last season’s huge success, then you thought very, very wrong. Not content with demolishing The X-Factor USA in its season premiere, show bosses have already begun tweaking the judging line-up for the forthcoming spring season.

Christina Aguilera – perhaps the most high profile of the four mentors – is being replaced by Colombian pop princess Shakira, while Cee-Lo Green will make way for R&B star Usher, according to Entertainment Weekly. The new additions are part of NBC’s plan to develop an “on-going tent of talent” for the show, though fans of Christina and Cee-Lo shouldn’t worry too much: they haven’t been sacked. The former is releasing a new album and will go on tour, while Green is developing new music and working on a scripted comedy series based on his life – both are likely to return for a later season. Having a rotational judging line-up is an interesting concept, and executive producer Mark Burnett firmly believes that it’s the way forward, saying, “Having award-winning artists as coaches means they need to be able to tour…Whether in the red chair or on tour, our coaches have their chairs for life. This is exactly why, after three seasons, we needed to allow them to rotate out so they can get on the road amongst their fans. Meanwhile, we’re incredibly excited to have singular artists like Usher and Shakira joining the fold.”

Country singer Blake Shelton and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine will continue on the spring season of The Voice – though it’s unclear whether this is through lack of work, or just because they love spinning their mechanical chairs around.

Rather than a clever name for a new band or album (which would work quite well, I think), this is in fact a tribute album. In celebration of his 75th Birthday, someone has put out this in memory of the great man himself. Step forward a diverse group of musicians with little in common apart from popularity, in order to show how far Buddy Holly's particular brand of rock and roll has permeated modern day music.
