The first season of the celebrity-picked judging show was a hit and will return next season for more blind-vocal scouting
While no one knows if J.Lo will return to "American Idol," although Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson have been confirmed, the latest reality talent show hawking for the next big thing has got their stuff together.
According to Us Weekly, NBC has confirmed Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Sheldon have all signed on again to do the show one more time. This is great news, considering the popularity the first season amassed, where the celebrity judges blindly choose singers who wowed them with their voices and then put them into teams to eventually compete against each other. Those who have the vocal shops, not only are mentored by the stars, but they winner gets $100,000 and a recording contract with a major record company.
This season’s finale saw Maroon 5’s front man make it happen, as it was his mentee Javier Colon, with his soulful, guitar-playing ease, who beat out a multitude of other very viable and highly entertaining contenders. While the show is currently auditioning for the next wave of singers, the fabulous four will be back to their entertaining antics in the sophomore season, scheduled for early 2012. Look for more powerhouse singers to emerge and more crazy get-ups from Aguilera and Cee Lo.
