Forget “American Idol,” Kelly Clarkson Added To “The Voice”
Rumors have been circulating that Kelly Clarkson was in talks to join the “American Idol” reboot at ABC, but it seems she’s gotten a job on a different talent competition series. NBC just announced that Kelly will join “The Voice” as a coach for season 14, with the show’s Blake Shelton also revealing the news on Facebook Live.
“I’m so excited to join ‘The Voice’ at NBC,” Kelly shares. “We’ve gone back and forth about a role as a coach for years, but the timing hasn’t been right until now.” She adds, “I can’t wait to turn my chair and see the faces of up-and-coming artists and provide them with the help and support they’ve needed to break into the industry. Watch out Shelton, I’m comin’ to win!!”
Kelly will join Adam Levine and Blake for season 14, with the fourth spot yet to be announced. So far no premiere date for season 14 has been announced but it will likely be in the spring.
The news comes just one day after Jennifer Hudson was added as a coach for season 13, with Miley Cyrus confirmed to return for that season as well.
