“Everyone was excited when Jennifer Lopez was at the show. There have been a lot of big stars performing on The Voice, but there was something different about Jennifer's visit. All the top exes and producers were on-set that day and after she finished filming there was a lot of closed-door meeting trying to convince her to join the show full-time,” sources tell Radar.

The singing show has been renewed by NBC, but with ratings falling the show has been reduced from twice a year to just once.

“At the end of the day Ariana Grande didn’t bring in the ratings. She has more social media followers than all the other stars combined, yet her fans didn’t tune in,” adds an insider.

However, the final blow was when Grande did even manage to get one of her acts in the finale.

“It is safe to say that Ariana won’t be back,” adds a source. “Plus, Blake has indicated that it might be time for him to take a break as the shows only original mentor left. The show needs some major excitement. It needs to be shaken up, which no-one does better than JLO.”
