Shakira, Ricky Martin In 'The Voice': Latinos Taking Over Singing Competition (VIDEO)

Latinos are taking over “The Voice” and all eyes are on them.

While this month Ricky Martin debuts as a “coach” for the Australian version of the singing TV competition show, Shakira is also shining as the only woman judge in the American version.

A new promo video introduces Martin, and highlights some of his best attributes as a ‘passionate, charismatic and sweet" artist with an extensive career.

Even his fellow mentors, singers Seal, Joel Madden (Good Charlotte vocalist) and Delta Goodrem, talk about how wonderful it is to have the Puerto Rican star on board as part of the project this year.

"He sold over 60 million albums. He has a career lasting 27 years," says Seal of his teammate.

Meanwhile, new images show Shaki fearless and very funny during the blind auditions.

“I’ve come here to be a mentor to people who had dreams like I once had,” says the Colombian star in the promo video.

Recently, Ricky has been spotted traveling with his two sons Mateo and Valentino, now that they are starting a new life in Australia. This year he is also expected to start a new TV show, and to publish his first children's book.

Shakira has also been making headlines with the announcement of the arrival of her first son Milan in January with boyfriend, Spanish soccer player, Gerard Piqué.

Take a look at the videos above and tell us what you think of Ricky and Shakira’s new gigs.
