Shakira may be the only female judge on NBC’s The Voice, but she is ready to take on the challenge!
She will be set to judge with fellow singers Adam Levine, 34, Blake Shelton, 36, and new judge Usher, 34
“Never underestimate a 5-foot-3 Colombian girl!” the new mom explains in a first look preview of The Voice, premiering Monday, March 25.
“They complain that I play the lady card, but it’s not a gimmick — I am a lady!” admits the Colombian-born singer-songwriter, 36, in the above preview clip, filmed when she was still pregnant with son Milan. “I’m not getting any advice from those guys!”
Christina Milian, The Voice’s social media correspondent, tells Us Weekly Shakira sure holds her own when it comes to choosing her team for the season. “Shakira is really awesome at campaigning — she’s smart and intelligent and gives great advice,” Milian hinted at the March 19 “Skirts Only” fashion show in New York City.
The Voice host Carson Daly is equally as smitten with the new girl on the block. “I think your spring girl crush is Shakira — a lot of people don’t know a lot about her and how good she is,” raves Daly, who has hosted the series since its 2011 premiere. “I think America is really going to fall in love with her when the show is on the air.”
I love Shakira! I haven’t even started watching yet, but I will be rooting for her team. The Voice premieres on NBC tonight.
Who’s team will you be rooting for? Do you like the new additions of Shakira and Usher to the panel?
