With the news of Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green taking a bit of a break from NBC's hit TV show, The Voice, we were wondering who would replace them. Well, now it's been confirmed that R&B singer, Usher and Latin bombshell, Shakira will be the replacements for the judge's chairs.

Christina Aguilera's new album, Lotus on the way, and she's all set to promote it, stating:

"This album is about self-expression and freedom," Aguilera said in a statement about her fifth studio release. "There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do."

Cee-Lo is working on a sitcom and developing new music projects as well, and the other two show's original judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain on the show.

With the show's new celebrity judging panel, we think it will be even more interesting. Shakira and Usher are both excited to be a part a a top-rated television show.

What do you think about the new judges of the show?
