The new judge struggled to hold her ground during the season four premiere of ‘The Voice,’ and lost out on one of her favorite singers to veteran judge Adam Levine! How do YOU think she did?

Shakira came into The Voice season four premiere with her signature high energy and enthusiasm, but the Colombian superstar failed to impress the vocal acts competing on stage — and ended up losing some of her favorite contestants to rival judge Adam Levine.

On the March 26 premiere, the Hips Don’t Lie singer, who is new to the judge’s revolving chair, was left with just two contestants — one of which was forced to pick Shakira because she was the only judge to turn her chair around, and another who said he only picked her because “his wife wouldn’t forgive him” if he didn’t go with her.

The most talented acts of the night slipped through Shakira’s fingers, and the singer who made the biggest impression, Judith Hill, went with season one winner Adam, despite Shakira’s pitch.

Shakira Pleads For Judith Hill To Join Her Team

“I know that if I help you, you will win The Voice,” Shakira told Judith. But it was Adam’s desperate please that won her over.

“I am going to claw everyone’s face until you realise that I am your frigging coach. I am going to light myself on fire to make sure that you are on my team,” Adam said. “You are the first person to ever come on the show and sing a Christina Aguilera song as well as Christina Aguilera… I’m going to have a panic attack if you don’t choose me because I know that you are going to win.”

So Judith chose Adam — and Shakira lost out again! Hopefully, the new mom will have better luck as the first rounds continue!
