In TheWrap's exclusive clip, Shelton gushes about the reunion (both Shakira and Usher previously coached on Season 4), offering ceaseless praise and admiration for the two returners.

Calling Usher “the coolest human being in the world” and Shakira “one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet,” it's clear that the coaches’ panel has as much chemistry on-screen as they do off.

    It's going to turn into the American idol soon. They are already following that path allowing the viewers to vote, which makes it nothing more then a popularity contest, rather then about the singing. The chemistry was great with CeLo, Adam, Christina and Blake. Trying to replace or replicate that is going to be hard. Just like idol they will rotate judges and find they can't get that same mixture of chemistry and it will lose viewers and ratings.

      I agree about the popularity contest bit. While it is good to have the viewers vote and let our “voices” be heard, we should not be the deciding factor on who takes the title.
      Honestly, I prefered the chemistry between Adam, Blake, Shakira and Usher better than CeeLo and Christina. There is just something about Shakira and Usher that brings a level of coolness to the show instead of diva drama. As long as they keep the two tall drinks of water, Adam and Blake, I will watch no matter what.

    Usher and Shakira were great replacements last time. I actually like Usher better than CeLo. So I'm sure it'll be another good season for them.

    It is time to find a new program to watch. Shakira may be “sweet” but she exudes zero personality and musical talent…her pretty face and shaking of the booty is the only reason she is in the biz. There is no way I can sit through watching her again.
