Pharrell Joining The Voice, Adam Levine Might Not Be Returning As Judge

adam-levine

For all of you “The Voice” fans, you may be getting some sad news soon. Adam Levine, who has been on The Voice for six seasons, may not be coming back.

Via our friends at Extra TV:

Levine has been a mainstay on “The Voice” for the past six seasons, but will he return for a seventh? “Extra’s” special correspondent Charissa Thompson caught up with the singer, who admitted he was excited about the Pharrell news, but didn’t know if he would be joining new coach Pharrell for the next cycle.

Adam said, “Man that’s great…When I found out that news, don’t know if we’ll be joining him because once again I’m checking my schedule, so when I verify I will be more excited.”

Usher also weighed in on Pharrell, saying, “I’m really happy, given that I felt like maybe I had some influence in the decision, given the fact that he came in as a mentor with me.”

Shakira offered her support, saying, “I love Pharrell, he’s great, I’ve worked with him in the past, he’s really awesome, he’s gonna do a terrific job I’m sure.”

I’m sure Pharrell will be awesome, but if Adam leaves I think it definitely will be a different show.

Who is your favorite The Voice judge?

Unedited Version of Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines” — Featuring Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo

robin-thicke

Robin Thicke and Pharrell visited “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night to perform their hit song “Blurred Lines.” The duo’s music video already has a billion views. Even though it’s extremely popular, Kimmel was very disappointed when the video was released when he learned he and his security guard Guillermo didn’t make the final cut. Luckily, Thicke and Pharrell brought the unedited version to JKL, which, everyone will surely agree, is much better.

Peep the Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo in “Blurred Lines” (feat. Robin Thicke and Pharrell) video below.
