The fourth season of NBC’s “The Voice” will include temporary judges Shakira and Usher replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green alongside veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. NBC has released the first official promotional pictures with each judge posing in the show’s famous swivel chairs. Skakira admits that recruiting for her “Voice” team has bought out the competitiveness in her. “Once we are in the process of trying to get a contestant recruited for our team, there’s a lot of adrenaline and there’s a lot of tension.” She also mentioned her tendency to micro manage her career, which she says carries over to her mentoring. “When I’m giving directions to my contestants, I’m particularly focused on details.” Shakira also spoke about the difficulties of carrying on her Voice duties during her pregnancy with boyfriend Gerard Pique in a recent chat with Access Hollywood. “[It] hasn’t been easy, but I have a lot of energy. I can go long hours,” Shakira declared. “I’m thrilled to be here and I’m sure he is too.” Season 4 of “The Voice” premieres on NBC on March 25.
