Dear “The Voice,”
I heard the news that you will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with Shakira and Usher next season. I hate this idea. Not because I love Xtina and Cee Lo so much that I can’t stand to lose them, but because you seem to be getting a touch of “American Idol” syndrome.

I have a feeling it’s the same person he was addressing in “F**k You.” She really inspired some great breakup songs. Keep reading »
