may have lost one spicy Latina judge in Christina Aguilera
, but newcomer Shakira
seems poised to infuse season 4 with a kinder-hearted, just-feisty-enough zest. In the exclusive video below, the 36-year-old Colombian superstar gamely takes on old-timers Blake Shelton
and Adam Levine
(after three seasons, she promises a contestant, “They’re almost deaf!”), slyly mocks the super-casual posture of fellow new judge Usher
(pictured), and even rushes the stage during blind auditions to hug a singer she wants on her team. The competition is on! And don’t worry — she isn’t above segueing into Spanish to get her point across.
