Usher & Shakira Replace Christina Aguilera & Cee Lo Green on 'The Voice' Season Four

Usher and Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on season four of The Voice, which is set to debut in the spring. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain on the coaching panel. Christina and Cee Lo are expected to return for season five.

“We are thrilled to welcome Usher and Shakira to The Voice. The addition of these popular iconic artists continues the tradition established by Christina, Cee Lo, Adam and Blake,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “Doing two back-to-back cycles of this show requires a tremendous amount of time, and we are happy to accommodate the commitments made by Christina and Cee Lo. The participants on our show benefit from our coaches’ expertise and their continued success in the music business allows for significant new contributions to the contestants when they return.”

“Being a coach on The Voice is a wonderful experience and the relationship amongst us all is like an extended family,” Christina said in her own statement “As I have expressed since day one of the show, that I am a singer and performer first and I am so excited to get back to that love. Since this year NBC and The Voice have decided to tape back-to-back seasons, requiring a full-year commitment, it is important for me to take Season 4 off, allowing me to support my music that my fans have been waiting for.”

“I’m highly enthusiastic about focusing my undivided attention on my additional endeavors and interests. I will return for Season 5 and will be watching Season 4. NBC is home, and as far as Usher and Shakira are concerned mi casa su casa,” Cee Lo said.

    I find it hilarious to hear comments about Shakira’s lack of talent. Shakira has been around wayyyyy longer than Christina and has an amazing voice. Whenever, Wherever was not her first song people, listen to some of her Spanish music – absolutely amazing!!

    @Tina: She has sold more albuns but i dont think she had the same impact in music history, i love both of them, but i believe that christina makes better and more meanfull music. I am going to miss Christina, she has an amazing judge.

    Since many of you are in incapable of recognizing brilliance and musical perfection, my hope is that Shakira’s season on the voice will help you see otherwise. It will be the first season I will watch straight through Its about time she is brought back mainstream for the rest of the world to appreciate.

    Live Nations says she’s worth 300 million. That’s what they’re paying her anyway. Unlike Xtina – Shakira is an actual musician. She writes, produces, sings, does her own choreography, and plays some of her own instruments. Her first million was made by singing while playing her guitar since her mid teens and is still relevent. Xtina hasn’t been relevent since 2002, nor has she been vocally trained – she’s constantly off pitch and key when she’s not screaming. Volume isn’t a talent – singing is. Shakira’s voice is truly unique and unheard of outside the middle east and she sings in tune. She’s far more experienced to judge talent.

    Shakira’s voice is awful. What the F*** are the thinking? With all the great female voices why her? Because she’s pretty?
