Monday night (March 25) marks the return of The Voice and with it marks the debut of the two new judges as Usher and Shakira sit in the hallowed swivel chairs left empty in Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green's absences.

While Shakira is no stranger to the public eye, what is something of a mystery is what kind of coach she'll be to the contestants on her team.

When asked about her coaching style by ET Online, Shakira theorized that she would likely become the mama bear of The Voice.

"I started out really, really young," the international superstar says. "I've been doing this for 25 years, and it hasn't been a path of roses. I know what it's like to feel that fear and the need of affirmation and appreciation. To build confidence in yourself is the toughest thing."

With a coaching pool heavy on testosterone, Shakira's approach will definitely be in demand.
