Usher’s songs are frequently featured on The Voice, but come Season 4, we’ll be seeing the R&B singer in the flesh when he joins the panel of celebrity coaches.

Earlier this year, NBC announced that Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are taking a break from the show so they could focus on other projects — with the pop diva touring and promoting her new album, Lotus, and the Lady Killer developing a semi-autobiographical TV show — and Shakira and Usher will replace them.

Surprisingly, Season 4 blind audition filming is already under way (even though Season 3 is currently airing), and Usher even canceled his 2013 European tour to focus on the show! We can tell he’s already dedicated, and Cee Lo told the Associated Press, “I can’t think of anybody else who could have done it besides Usher at this moment in time.”
