Shakira is coming to the UK for a performance on The Voice 2014 this year, it's been confirmed.

The singer became a coach on the US show in 2012 and is set to fly to Britain later this year for the live shows.

But she won't be sitting in one of the chairs, rather on stage performing new single Can't Remember to Forget You, which features Rihanna, on March 29.

The song was released here last month and peaked at Number 11 in the charts.

Meanwhile The Voice UK coach Ricky Wilson has hinted he and his band the Kaiser Chiefs could also be set to perform on the live shows this year.

With a new album out in March, Ricky confessed that the publicity from the show was one of the reasons he agreed to sign up.

The rocker confessed: “It’s on TV, in the corner of everyone’s room, and at the risk of sounding vulgar, I kind of want as many people to hear this record as possible because I’m really proud of it.

“I can say to you that I did it because I wanted to give back to the talent of the future, but I’ve also got a record coming out!”

The Voice UK live shows will begin March following the Battle Rounds and Knockout Rounds.

For now, the blind auditions continue this Saturday night on BBC One with the final set of try outs.
