Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will return for a second season on “The Voice.”
A day after soulful crooner Javier Colon was crowned champion of NBC’s top-rated new singing competition, the Peacock network announced all four celebrity coaches would stick with the program.
“Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of ‘The Voice’ this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning,” said Paul Telegdy, an executive vice president with NBC. “We look forward to building season two and making ‘The Voice’ an even greater experience for fans.”
