Shakira has announced she will not be returning to The Voice next year.

In an interview with Us Weekly, Shakira made it clear she wasn't coming back. 

"I'm not going to be able to do next season because I have to get back to my motherhood and also get back to the studio, the recording studio, to finish my album, the one that I started working on before I had to deliver a baby and before I took this gig with 'The Voice.' So yeah, I have to take a little break. But you never know, I might come back!"
