During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Usher answered the question many fans have been eager to know, “Will he return to “The Voice”? It was previously speculated that neither Usher nor Shakira who joined The Voice to save a seat for Cee-Lo and Christina Auguilera would return. However, Usher made his intentions clear for next season, ‘I plan on coming back.’ It will be interesting to see how NBC juggles the two additional judges.
Meanwhile, the bad boy of the moment Justin Bieber has at least one person in his corner. Usher is often credited with being Bieber’s mentor and introducing him to the R&B scene. Since his rise to fame, Bieber has found himself in a slew of trouble – the cause? His youth……according to Usher at least.
“…I think all of us in some way have humble beginnings that pan out to be incredible and we hope…that he’ll continue to just mature but you know in this days age of social media. There is no privacy and that kind of trail and elimination period is kind of done in front of a camera. I am hoping for the best. I don’t look at as a negative though. I look at it as a teenager. A teenager having to live his life in front of a camera. Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager.”
