It’s going to be a big year for the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer. Shakira recently announced that she is pregnant with her first child with Spanish soccer star, Gerard Pique,and that she will be joining NBC’s The Voice along with Usher in the spring of 2013 when CeeLo Green and Christina Aguilera take a break.
Both Green and Aguilera want to take time to focus on their music careers but are set to return the following season. It was the same situation for Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez with American Idol. The judging panel of The Voice’s future may be uncertain, but for now a pregnant Shakira can do nothing but help the already buzzworthy reality show.
