    Considering Gwen Stefani signed on to be a judge for the seventh season, kind of obvious Shakira was leaving.

    @M: Not really, because last time was temp too…she was there fore season 4, not for season 5 because of Xtina, back for season 6 and many thought she would be back for season 8 because gwen stefani was taking over for Xtina in season 7. I liked having her on over Xtina and I’m still a big fan of hers, but I prefer to watch her perform than coach.

    @michelle: agree, she really shouldn’t be one to mentor others when she doesn’t have pleasant and understandable vocals herself, she wasn’t that knowledgeable towards the singers anyways. im looking forward to gwen and see her style of mentoring, she isn’t only a great singer, but she’s a good showman that hypes up and entertains the crowd, her No Doubt shows are always fun.

    That’s a nice way of saying she got Fired. Can’t wait to see how Gwen will do and look forward to seeing Xtina return.

    So happy to her Shakira is leaving….back to see The Voice!!!!! I never understood how a show with that name could have Shakira as a “judge/coach”….if it had been a belly dancing/arab dance/hip shaking maybe but not for The Voice! So glad she is leaving, back to watch one of my fav shows :-)

    The European leg of her tour is this fall. I’m pretty sure that’s why they signed Gwen Stefani to begin with, not because they didn’t want her back. She’s very popular with a lot of fans of the show.

    @Martha Willington:

    Nah. They brought back Shakira this season even though she was only meant to be on for 1 season. The producers would have her back on if they could. She just happens to be in a predicament because she lives in Spain and she’s got a lot more worldwide obligations than the other coaches, who all reside in the U.S.

    She has to go on a 100+ show world tour, promote her music, and spend some time back home in Spain. She’ll make a lot more money this way too.
