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.

Last night The Voice featured one of the most Latino moments on network TV ever. Let us explain. Cuban American singer, Monique Abbadie, a former child performer on Sabado Gigante (yes, that Sabado Gigante) sang Shakira’s “Loca.” Abbadie’s rendition of Shak’s song was, on some notes, better than the original. The result: all four judges hit their buttons. The young singer squealed out an “Ay Dios mio!” Shakira’s fellow judges knew which team Abbadie, who as a pre-teen had taken a picture with Shakira after one of her concerts, was going to pick.

Night two of The Voice premiere found Shakira snagging another singer and breaking out in her native tongue, Spanish. The night’s first singer, Tawyna Reynolds, seemed poised for a spot on Team Blake but Shak stole this one from the country star.

Shakira made a respectable debut as a judge on The Voice last night on NBC. The petite Colombian superstar held her own within the boys club (Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Usher) even going as far as mimicking Usher’s flirtatious ways when vying for a singer. She was concise in her praise and quick with her comebacks.

David Bisbal is a busy man. Besides launching a national tour in the U.S. earlier this month, the Spanish singer is also a judge on La Voz, the Spanish-language version of the NBC hit singing competition, The Voice.
The 33-year-old Grammy-winning star knows firsthand the success that a reality show can grant since becoming runner up on the TVE’s Operación Triunfo. Since then, he has sold over 5 million albums throughout Europe and Latin America.

Christina Aguilera (and her wild hairstyles) will be missed on The Voice, but Shakira is definitely keeping the “Your Body” diva’s seat nice and warm! The new mami is so good in the new promo videos that she has us wondering if she’ll stick around as a permanent mentor on the hit NBC show.

Milan Piqué Mebarak may only be two days old, but when your parents are Colombian superstar Shakira and Spanish soccer hunk Gerard Piqué, fashion can't wait. Proud papa Piqué posted a picture on his WhoSay page of his son wearing his first pair of Nikes with his name stitched on top.
"Milan's feet!" Piqué wrote.
