Finalists and eventual winners of the Billboard Latin Music Awards were determined by radio and sales chart performance and social and streaming activity as chronicled in Billboard magazine, billboard.com and billboard.biz during the eligibility period. Someone has checked that Shakira is the most mentioned here? She’s has the most experience, talented, and intelligence and she’s so cute and sweet.

Shakira managed to win Social Artist of the Year, Songs Female Artist of the Year as well as Latin Pop Songs Solo Artist of the Year, despite having faced stiff competition from Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, the late Jenni Rivera, and Enrique Iglesias. Shakira’s performance marks a change in the way Billboard’s year-end charts measure success. For the first time, Latin rankings include general top artist categories determined not only by album sales and radio airplay, but also by boxscore touring revenue, track downloads, Social 50 chart activity, sales and streaming data.

Picking up Grammys is like second nature for Shakira, as she straddles both mainstream and Latin music.
The Colombian superstar is one of the best crossover artists in today’s music industry, having won numerous awards at both the Latin and American Grammys.

This makes her even more qualified to coach her contestants on The Voice Season 4. Team Shakira is looking strong going into the knockout rounds, and we’re loving this artist’s positive attitude and endearing banter.

The Voice Season 4 Final Blind Auditions!

The Voice Season 4 blind auditions are great tonight but I have to say. “I love the judges” They definitely make my night! Ha ha ha! The Voice is the most entertaining show on television right now. Period. And I LOVE the cast of judges. Can’t wait to watch tonight.
 The Voice Season 4 Final Blind Auditions
 my world revolves around this show when its on. i so enjoy it. the talent and those crazy coaches, absolutely the best ever!Blake and adam love your joking and cutting up it makes the voice so much better and funny. Keep keeping on what your doing. Never leave the show. also would like to say I like Usher and Shakira There is more camaraderie this season than ever so glad for the change that Usher and Shakira brought no dull moment. though I liked CeeLo and Christina. Adam’s team seems to be a force this season. It will surely be difficult for him to choose in the battle rounds. Although obviously it’s a good problem to have. Ha! Team Adam is SO gonna win! Sasha is the winner! No contest! Not only is she beautiful, she’s a classical pianist, poised and the young woman can sing!

Not only am I a big music fan and love seeing the people sing, I also love the bro love between Adam and Blake! Their pokes at each other keep me in stitches and Usher and Shakira are doing a great job so far. I hope Blake does not put the two younger girls together in the battles they both need to be seen go Danielle and Savannah.

I was so wrong about my way of thinking about Shakira she is one smart shake that hip girl! I’m proud of her and Usher is rocking the Voice! still love my Ceelo and Christina but thank goodness it didn’t change like some other Nicki Minaj mess, of an Idol.

The Voice Season 4 contestant
Just a little disappointed that a lot of these contestants have had previous careers or toured with major talent already. Anyway, there have been people like that on every season. It is not against the rules of the show though, they just want good singers, experienced or not.

Audrey karrasch Shot Adam on The Voice Season 4

Audrey Karrasch not only had the looks and the voice to succeed, she’s also got the spunk. Two of the four judges turned their chairs around for her, with Blake doing so a nanosecond after her first note. But when Adam, the lone judge to keep his back to her, tried to offer her advice, she shot him down.
“You didn’t even turn around. Why do you care?” she said, instantly becoming a fan favorite. Because who hasn’t wanted to say that to Adam, or any of the other judges, at some point this season?

I liked her performance and so far what she has had to say seems sensible but her being disrespectful to Adam was alarming and than the way she chose Usher, while disregarding Blake was not nice either. She pissed a lot of people off. It will be interesting to see if she can redeem herself. She can have all the confidence in the world but that’s no excuse to be rude.

Audrey Karrasch Team Usher

In my opinion she was definitely rude to Adam. Even if he didn’t turn around she should’ve shut up and listened to his critique/advice. I loved her performance. I think she has a good voice I just didn’t like her rudeness.

5) Orlando Dixon: Ne-Yo’s “So Sick” (Team Usher) | He had a nice enough voice, I guess, but for a voice major at Berklee, I thought he lacked the horsepower to be a true contender. Usher needs fodder for the Battle Rounds, though, I suppose.
4) Brandon Roush: The Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” (Team Shakira) | Long-haired Louisville native who teaches music to autistic kids hit his notes, but emotionally, it felt a little community theater musical, no?
3) Patrick Dodd: Marc Cohn’s “Walking in Memphis” (Team Adam) | As Adam said, dude really does have a “density of rasp” that’s appealing, but with the exception of a few bluesy runs toward the end, it was all a little too carbon-copy of the original. It does, however, give me an excuse to link to Cher’s legendary video for her cover of the song.
2) Savannah Perry: Taylor Swift’s “Safe and Sound” (Team Blake) | The gorgeous break in her voice reminded me a little of Heather Nova, and while the 17-year-old seemed sweet and focused on her craft, I wonder if in a few weeks we’ll have wished she waited another two or three years to audition.
1) Audrey Karrasch: Jessie J’s “Price Tag” (Team Usher) | My ears detected a handful of flat notes toward the end, but she served her dish with enough sassy sauce that it didn’t really matter. Her courage to go full-on uptempo

Audrey Karrasch the voice

She was obviously joking but it was still rude to do that to the judges. I love that she’s confident but its the people that are voting, if she doesn’t please the viewers with a change in her form of joking, no matter how good she is.

Shes gonna get voted off. I like her, but I can bet money that she will start drama between other singers if she stays long enough Well, I don’t think they would act all offended either way. She just seemed arrogant to me – I didn’t like how she cut off Adam. However, I could be wrong. Maybe she WAS just nervous, we’ll see how she acts later as well. It will be hard for her to redeem herself for the viewers. No one is jealous of her or setting back feminism, people just don’t like her attitude. I liked her voice but her attitude sucks, therefore I am not going to support her and I hope she get eliminated first.

The Voice Week 2 Shakira better than Christina?

This is the most fun ever The Voice Season 4! Perfect chemistry with these coaches. For the first time I am taping the show just to make sure I don’t miss anything.
 I just love how cute this group of judges are together. I didn’t listen to a lot of Usher music, but he is such a cutie how can you not be a fan of his? And Adam, Shakira, and Blake. They rock! Great chemistry and Shakira is so much better than Christina. Christina’s makeup and wacky hats were distracting not to mention her boobs were constantly on display.

Shakira is so much more fun than Christina ever was. Christina may be talented, but she is awfully full of herself. Shakira seems to be really down to earth. I love how all the judges this season are having so much FUN!!! Have to admit that I am more of a Team Blake/Team Adam gal.

Shakira has so much more class than what we saw in Christina. I hope she stays with the show and Christina never returns!! Christina spent more time showing her “girls” to everyone than being a coach!!
