Shakira and The Voice are like an arepa con queso—the perfect combination. As a Voice judge, the Colombian super rockera is charismatic, engaging, insightful and more adorable than puppies on marshmallow clouds (coño, we’re getting hungry now). But we digress. Shakira has also provided viewers with some of the funniest facial expressions on The Voice ever. Here we provide proof in GIFs. Enjoy and share before tonight's first live show!

It all came down to Team Shakira’s Mary Miranda/Cathia battle last night on The Voice. The two Latina singers went head-to-head using a…wait for it…Shakira song, Antes de las Seis.” During the rehearsals, Miranda stumbled a bit due to her lack of knowledge of Shakira’s catalogue.
“Mary doesn’t know her parts,” Cathia said of Miranda. “You just can’t go up to Shakira and not sing her song well. You need to know the melody.” Ouch!

The battle is on! And Shakira came out on top. Last night’s The Voice featured its first batch of battle rounds, where contestants on the same teams duke it out to see who advances. The night’s best battle came by way Team Adam featuring former Michael Jackson backup singer, Judith Hill, and rocker Karina Iglesias singing James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s Man's Man's World.” Hill and Iglesias went toe-to-toe, high note-to-high note, and stage-swag to-stage-swag.

The story on The Voice last night wasn’t about Shakira (yet she was involved). The brightest performance of the night came via Havana, Cuba-born Mary Miranda. Before the teenaged Miranda took the stage she told her story—and boy was it a weeper. She came to Albuquerque from Cuba, she was teased in school and her dad lives in Barcelona. Her one reminder of him she wears -- a necklace he gave her.
