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.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Usher and Shakira act as replacements for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green?

    You don’t have you like her personality but professional she is way better. Christina has a stronger voice

    Shakira and Christina are two totally different artist, who have different styles so stop comparing the two! Each judge will bring something different, season 4 hasn’t even started and you guys are already judging! If you don’t like it then don’t watch it! Stop being so rude!

    Some people are just S H I T. You CAN NOT compare 2 different artists unless they both sing the same genre, same song, same outfit and same everything. I hate it when they compare my favorite artists. Go do something else useful beside saying negative stuff man!!!

    Well, when you have these negative people around, they make you appreciate the positive ones better. And of course we are all happier than them cuz I’m sure they have frowns on their faces each time they make negative comments.

    Jess Says:

    As long as Blake and Adam is still on, I don’t really care about the other two. If I get Shevine the rest doesn’t matter.

    Amber Says:

    Shakira should be on the Voice Colombia, not US!!! I just can say when she sings live, I’m afraid she sucks!!! I heard most of Spanish speakers don’t understand her when she sings in Spanish… so, who’s gonna to understand her in English???
