The latest episode of The Voice may have solidified Blake Shelton's spot in last place when recruiting team members during the blind auditions, but off-camera, he celebrated his victories plenty in front of the other coaches.
"I'm a gentlemen -- ladies first," explained Usher as to why he doesn't hit his button until after Shakira does, nearly every time. But among all the spinning seats, one coach came up completely empty on Tuesday's episode of The Voice.
On the third night of The Voice's blind auditions, the R&B musician recruited his first country act of the season, while Shakira compared herself to Alexander the Great and tried to translate Adam Levine's tattoo to help a contestant pick a coach.
Usher may have been the breakout judge of the fourth season of The Voice, with his unconventional coaching techniques involving push-ups and ballroom dancing, but so far, Shakira is the star of the season six premiere.
The Voice returns to NBC on Monday night, with Adam Levine, Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton in the spinning red chairs this season. The premiere kicks off with the four coaches covering each other's top hits, but the two-hour episode is sprinkled with fun moments among the coaches between the performances.
"I'm not coming back, guys," he told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview that aired Wednesday. "I don’t want to wear out my welcome there … I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven't released an album in four years."
The Voice is continuing its tradition of kicking off the season with a performance by its coaches, but rather than having them all collaborate on a single song, they're taking each other's tracks for a genre-swapping spin on the same stage.
Cee Lo Green is leaving his spinning judge's chair behind. The producer and recording artist said he will not return to NBC's The Voice, telling Ellen DeGeneres in an interview airing Wednesday, "I'm not coming back, guys."
Shakira and Usher are back in their spinning red chairs for season six of The Voice.
"The first time in season four, I feel like, that Shak and Usher just were sort of respecting the territory of the show," says host Carson Daly in an exclusive clip from The Hollywood Reporter. "But season six, they came back with a vengeance. Everybody on this show has to step up their game."
