The Voice has scored not one, but two American Idol alum for its upcoming seasons!
Kelly Clarkson will serve as a coach on The Voice alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in season 14, airing in the spring of 2018, NBC announced on Thursday. The news comes just one day after it was revealed that fellow IdolJennifer Hudson is rounding out the season 13 coaching panel this fall alongside Shelton, Levine and Miley Cyrus.
Shelton broke news of the casting in a Facebook Live on Thursday, appearing alongside Clarkson via FaceTime.
"Hey, I'm finally not knocked up and I can join your show!" Clarkson joked. "I've been excited about this for a few years now."
This won't be Clarkson's first time advising artists on The Voice -- back in season two, she served as a guest mentor to Shelton's team in the battle rounds.
"I’m so excited to join The Voice at NBC,” Clarkson said in a press release. “We’ve gone back and forth about a role as a coach for years, but the timing hasn’t been right until now. I have always loved appearing on the show as an adviser or performer and established an amazing relationship with the network during my Christmas special. 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!!”
Earlier this year, when season 12 hopeful Stephanie Rice covered her song "Piece By Piece," Clarkson proved herself a fan by tweeting about the emotional moment in real time.
“Can't. Stop. Crying,” Clarkson wrote on Twitter after the performance. “Her vulnerability and her story ....just wow. Steph, I hope ur parents open their hearts 2 the beautiful person u r!”
Rice dished about the moment in an interview with ET last month. Watch below!
