Usher and Shakira are joining the US version of The Voice as new coaches next spring when Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green take a break from the show.

Original coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will remain on board in season four, TV network NBC revealed. The singing contest began airing its third season last week.

Christina is going on the road to support her new album, while Cee Lo is developing new music and a sitcom based on his life for NBC.

"As I have expressed since Day One of the show ... I am a singer and performer first and I am so excited to get back to that love," Christina said. But she expressed eagerness about returning to The Voice in the future.

So did Cee Lo, who said he'll be back for season five. In the meantime, he invited Usher and Shakira to make themselves at home.

NBC's entertainment chief, Bob Greenblatt, said the network was glad to help Christina and Cee Lo take time off from the programme.
