Usher and 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 big chairs!

In just-released promotional portraits, the two new mentors pose in the show's famous swivel chairs alongside veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

Shakira, 35, and Usher, 34, replace Christina Aguilera, 32, and Cee Lo Green, 38, for the NBC show's fourth season, premiering March 25.

Shakira, who will soon 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 and 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 great 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 and Shelton, 36, have gotten along great. "The dynamic has changed for sure," Blake said of Aguilera and Green's temporary exits. "It's really fun."

Joked Usher, "I've been able to bring out his inner MC Hammer."

Are you excited for Shakira and Usher on The Voice?


I love the idea of having Shakira and Usher on the Voice, so I was excited to hear they would be added to the judge’s panel. I can see what Blake means when he says the dynamic has changed with the addition of the two; it looks like this season will be a lot of fun! My DISH coworker first told me about this change and I’ve been excited for season four ever since. I like to record the Voice every season on my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I set this up to record all primetime programming that comes on the four major networks without having to set up any individual timers.
