*We were just falling in love with Usher all over again with his judging role on “The Voice.” But the singer was offered a better deal and so he’s leaving.
Yeah, it’s only been one season and he’s ready to walk away from the singing competition to up the ante on his acting career.
According to Us Weekly, a source claims he’s got more important things to do.
“Usher is doing a movie, so he couldn’t do season five if they wanted him to.”
The father of two is preparing for a role as legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, which he’ll play alongside with Robert DeNiro in upcoming film, “Hands of Stone.”
“The Voice” is also losing Shakira, also after one season. They’re dropping like flies.
The two had such chemistry in the judges booth, but good people don’t last on shows like that.
“It was a hard decision for me to make, because I’m really fond of the coaches, the people in production and everybody around me,” the hip swaying new mom told E! News. “I really enjoyed The Voice, but I also have a musical career and I’m also a mother now and my poor baby’s so tired flying such long distances. He already has more miles than any pilot. So I think I have to give him a little break, and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
The singer gave birth to a little boy in January. Her seat will be re-filled by Christina Aguilera, who is allegedly negotiating a $12 million deal.
