Shakira to sit in for Christina Aguilera on the Spring edition of “The Voice”

Come springtime, The Voice’s Christina Aguilera will have an album coming out and a concert tour to take, so she (and fellow judge Celo Green) will be taking a one-season break from the first 2013 session of the hugely popular singing competition. But she’s found another incredibly talented Latina to take her place (temporarily): Shakira. She’ll take possession of Chair Number Three in Spring 2013, along with Usher, who’s sit in (literally) for Celo. Both the original judges are expected to return with the Fall ’13 cycle, and there’s almost certain to be one: The Voice continues to blow both American Idol and X-Factor out of the ratings waters week after week.
