NBC announced Monday that Shakira and Usher will join the show's judges panel in the spring, filling in for pant-fearing Christina Aguilera and sequin-loving Cee Lo Green.
The move will allow the veteran judges some breathing room as they embark on other projects. Aguilera is releasing a new album and going on tour. Green is working on new music and developing a scripted comedy series for the network based on his life. Blake Shelton and Adam Levine will still be around.
