The next season of ‘The Voice‘ will have a much different dynamic. Coaches Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green won’t be returning for the spring season, being replaced by Shakira and Usher!

Entertainment Weekly reports that the new lineup is part of an effort by NBC to develop an arsenal of artist coaches that they can pick and choose from at various times, since it’s difficult to arrange all of the original coaches’ tour schedules and recording sessions with one another in order to film.

“Having award-winning artists as coaches means they need to be able to tour,” executive producer Mark Burnett said. “Whether in the red chair or on tour, our coaches have their chairs for life. This is exactly why, after three seasons, we needed to allow them to rotate out so they can get on the road amongst their fans. Meanwhile, we’re incredibly excited to have singular artists like Usher and Shakira joining the fold.”

Fans of Cee Lo and XTina, don’t fret! The two original coaches are expected to come back for the fall season of the singing show juggernaut. We’re excited to see how Shaki and Ursher mesh with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine!
