Shakira on The Voice's Male Judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher: They Underestimate Me!
Shakira is working her way into The Voice's boys' club -- and isn't taking any prisoners when it comes to judging the NBC hit's fourth season alongside Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Usher. "Never underestimate a 5-foot-3 Colombian girl!" the new mom explains in a first look preview of The Voice, premiering Monday, March 25.
Meshing well with show veterans Levine, 34, Shelton, 36, and newbie judge Usher, 34, Shakira explains that she's already faced the same ribbing the guys dished out to the female judge in the chair before her, Christina Aguilera. "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. (Case in point: The preview scene above in which Shakira is forced to defend her coaching skills to a dubious Shelton, who tells a contestant joining her team would be "an experiment.")
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."
The Voice's fourth season premieres Monday at 8 p.m. (EST) on NBC.
