Last night, “The Voice” wrapped up season five by crowning their winner, Tessanne Chin. Just days after crowning their victor, “The Voice” announced that they will be bringing back Usher and Shakira, who will join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton starting Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, when “The Voice” returns to NBC.

When Shakira announced that she was leaving after her short stay during season five, she attributed it to her busy schedule …

“It was a hard decision for me to make, because I’m really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me,” she told E! News. ” I really enjoyed The Voice, but I also have a musical career and I’m  a mother now and my poor baby’s so tired flying such long distances. He already has more miles than any pilot. So I think I have to give him a little break, and we’ll see what happens in the future.”

There has been no word from either Green or Aguilera’s camp on how they are taking their replacement … again. “The Voice” returns early 2014, with a two-night premiere on Monday, Feb. 24 and Tuesday, Feb. 25 on NBC. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
