The Voice Season 4 Photos: Ushering in a New Era!
Usher & Shakira are set to debut on The Voice, which just crowned Cassadee Pope champion, in Season 4. Here’s a look at the first photos of them in the huge chairs!
In just-released promotional portraits, the two new mentors pose in the show’s famous swivel chairs alongside veterans Adam Levine & Blake Shelton.
Shakira, 35, & Usher, 34, replace Christina Aguilera, 32, & Cee Lo Green, 38, for the NBC show’s fourth season, premiering March 25.
Shakira, who will shortly welcome her firstborn son with boyfriend Gerard Pique (reports that Shakira gave birth already were a hoax) is quite pregnant.
“I’m thrilled to be here & I’m sure he is too,” she told Access Hollywood, pointing to her baby bump, which Levine said contains his infant namesake.
“She’s going to name the baby Adam, actually,” the Maroon 5 frontman, 33, joked. “It’s a tremendous name. It’s a very strong name. Strong name.”
The “One More Night” crooner admitted he “underestimated” the Latin superstar. “I stole a couple of contestants from him,” Shakira explained.
Usher & Shelton, 36, have gotten along great. “The dynamic has changed for sure,” Blake said of Aguilera & Green’s temporary exits. “It’s really fun.”
Joked Usher, “I’ve been able to bring out his inner MC Hammer.”
