    Shakira and Usher will substitute for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on the forthcoming spring season of The Voice, which will be the show's fourth. With a two-season-a-year filming schedule, the coach's career commitments needed to be considered.

    Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are onboard for Season 4 in the spring. But at this point, Xtina and Cee Lo have their own careers to tend to. So while Xtina and Cee Lo do just that, Usher and Shakira will fill in.

    Xtina and Cee Lo are expected to return to the show in the fall.

    "We know we needed to find another of the world's greatest female vocal talents, and Shakira instantly came to mind," The Voice executive producer Mark Burnett said about finding a suitable fill in for Aguilera, according to The Wrap. He also declared that "Usher is not just a singer or an entertainer, he is a global icon."

    We wonder if the change of coaches will upset the show's chemistry and apple cart.

    What do you think of these subs?
