    The Voice will return to the boob tube for its fourth season sans Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, who are taking a hiatus for a season to tend to their own careers.

    Their replacements, Shakira and Usher, the former of which is expecting her first child, spoke at a press conference about their upcoming roles.

    "Once we are in the process of trying to get a contestant recruited for our team, there's a lot of adrenaline and there's a lot of tension," Shakira said.

    She referenced her own tendency to micromanage, saying, "When I'm giving directions to my contestants, I'm particularly focused on details."

    Returning coach Blake Shelton commented on the new-look panel, saying, "Cee Lo was always so laid back," Shelton stated. "He's kind of been the quiet killer in this thing. We replace Cee Lo with somebody that's just that much more aggressive and now you've got four that are killers up here."

    Are you planning to watch Season 4 of The Voice, starting March 25 on NBC?
