Blake Shelton Reportedly Signs on for ‘The Voice’ Season 3
Blake Shelton fans will be excited to learn that on Season 3 of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ when one of those iconic red chairs swivels around, their favorite country papa bear will still be sitting in it. The Wrap is reporting that Shelton has signed on for another season of the show, along with all three of the other celebrity coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine.
While the coaches seem to enjoy their time on the show, they’re certainly not lending their musical expertise for free, or anything even remotely close to the vicinity of free. The Wrap reports that Aguilera will receive $10 million for returning, while the other three judges will each see their current pay doubled to $6 million.
The show, which is currently in its second season, is gearing up for a third season in the fall. When asked to confirm that the lineup of celebrity coaches will remain the same, a spokeswoman from NBC contended that no final decisions have been made and that there’s still room to see different judges enter the mix.
On the current season of the show, Shelton and the other coaches are still trying to craft their perfect teams, listening to each performer during the blind auditions and only hitting that giant button to turn around when someone truly wows them. So far, Shelton has six of his 12 slots filled with hopefuls, including Brian Fuente, Erin Willitt, Gwen Sebastian, Jermaine Paul, Jordis Unga and RaeLynn.
Tune in Mondays at 8 PM ET on NBC to see how this season plays out. And rest assured knowing that, regardless of which contestants are voted off and have to leave, the coaches aren’t going anywhere. For those salaries, we don’t blame them!
