I hear my longtime background singer @sashaallenmusic is STILL GOING on #TheVoice!! Go #TeamShakira LET'S WIN this thing!!!Sasha used to sing backup for the legend back in the day, and these days she’s being compared to another legend — Sasha Fierce (aka Beyonce). When Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively with the contestant, she was thrilled by the nickname.

“It’s huge. I look up to [Beyonce] so much and to be slightly compared — I mean I don’t even want to compare myself,” she told us. “Who wouldn’t want to be compared to Beyonce?”
It’s nice to see Christina supporting some of this season’s talent. Perhaps it’s practice for her return this fall for Season 5 of the show.
Sadly, there will be no battle of the divas as Shakira is taking Season 5 off to spend time with her family and record her new album. But the Colombian superstar will be back in Season 6, airing spring 2014.
