Shakira and Usher have been confirmed to join The Voice as judges next season, replacing current judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

Green and Aguilera will be departing from the hit muscial show at the end of this season to pursue other ventures, making way for the latest additions.

"We are thrilled to welcome Usher and Shakira to The Voice, " Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement reported by The Clicker.

"The addition of these popular iconic artists continues the tradition established by Christina, Cee Lo, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Doing two back-to-back cycles of this show requires a tremendous amount of time, and we are happy to accommodate the commitments made by Christina and Cee Lo."

However, if you've become accustomed to the current line-up gracing your screens weekly, don't fret as the duo haven't gone for good.

In a statement released by Christina, she promised to return to the talent show: "By pursuing my first passion of music during the break, I am also able to come back and offer even more to my team on 'The Voice' in the future," she said.

Whilst Green revealed he would also be making a return, adding: "Thank you, NBC, for supporting my decision to take this season four hiatus! I will return for season five and will be watching season four."
