The word is that it looks like Blake Shelton will be back next season on NBC's "The Voice". Blake has provided a country bent to the show, which features other pop artists including Christina Aguilera.

""The Voice" kicks off its finals phase and transitions to live broadcasts beginning June 7, Cee Lo Green tells Billboard.com that he and the other judges -- Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine -- are all likely returning for the show's second season later this year.

"We've already been secured for a second season, so prepare to see a lot more of myself, Christina, Blake and Adam, and a host of great artists doing their thing," says Green. When asked whether or not all four judges will definitely be back, the R&B singer says, "That would be the safe assumption."
