Next week will welcome back NBC’s The Voice, and newcomers Usher and Shakira will try their hand at judging and mentoring a new batch of singers, as they take over for Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo, who are both out promoting their new music.
Though she is not on the program this year, Christina is still ripping on Blake and Adam, telling them to treat Shakira “like the lady that she is.”
Earlier this week, Christina tweeted:
Know how u boys can get @adamlevine @blakeshelton so watch locker room humor & treat @shakira like lady she is on new #TheVoice. #girlpower
It seems Shakira is no pushover however, and a teaser for the new season shows he turning on the charm and joking with the guys.
Christina’s new album Lotus features the single “Just a Fool” which she sang with fellow judge, country crooner Blake Shelton.
After telling the guys to be good to Shakira, Christina, 32, also ribbed Adam Levine, who just turned 34, about getting older, saying, “I know you’ll be whipping out the tequila shots tonight. You turn 40, right? Hehe. You know I’ll always bust your balls.”
The judges, old and new, will launch the new season on Monday, March 25th at 8 p.m. EST.
