American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson will join The Voice as a coach in season 14.


The Grammy winner will work with fellow judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. A fourth coach will be named at a later date, but neither Gwen Stefani nor Alicia Keys will sign on for another season.

“I’m so excited to join The Voice at NBC,” Clarkson said in a statement. “We’ve been going back and forth with them for years on joining their team and the timing hasn’t been right until now. Ever since NBC and I worked together on my Christmas special years ago we have established an amazing relationship and I have always loved coming on to either mentor, or perform on The Voice over the years. I can’t wait to turn my chair and see the faces of up and coming artists that I may be able to help get that push and support they’ve been needing to break into this industry. Watch out Shelton… I’m comin’ to win!”

“Kelly has been a part of The Voice family for many years as an adviser and performer,” said Paul Telegdy, president of the alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment. “We are thrilled she has chosen to join us as a coach to mentor the next generation through our unique vocal boot camp. Every time Kelly Clarkson sings you are reminded what an incredible voice really is. We are looking forward to the sound of Kelly Clarkson on The Voice.”

It was also announced that Jennifer Hudson would come on board as a coach for season 13, alongside Shelton, Levine, and Miley Cyrus.
