If you thought that The Voice would suffer with the departures of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, you were definitely wrong!

NBC’s music juggernaut premiered this week to massive ratings, even with the debut of new judges Shakira and Usher taking over the red seats. No wonder Shakira looked so excited as she landed in Paris today.

According to reports, the show was up 12 percent from its season 3 premiere. Does this mean that people love Shakira and Usher more?! I feel like Christina and Cee Lo are going to be rather offended. But really, isn’t there enough love in the The Voice world to go around for everyone? 

Plus, Christina is looking so thin now, she’s gotta be coming back next season for sure. Fun fact: the premiere of The Voice did better than every American Idol episode since January’s premiere. That’s a thing!

So how do you feel about the new judging panel? Let us know in the comments! And don’t forget to check out new mommy Shakira in the gallery! She is looking rather fabulous having given birth not too long ago, am I right?
