The X Factor and The Voice aren’t the only singing shows shaking up their judging panels this year.

Sara Bareilles is leaving NBC’s competition series The Sing-Off. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter wants to “focus on her music,” says a source close to Bareilles. She replaced original Sing-Off judge Nicole Scherzinger for the show’s third season after Scherzinger departed to Fox’s X Factor.

The move creates at least one opening on the judges panel for the lively a cappella competition. The show is  being overhauled for its upcoming fourth round by its new executive producer — The Voice and Survivor guru Mark Burnett. »
