Kelly Clarkson joins The Voice as coach
American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will join the singing competition The Voice as a coach for its 14th season.
The Grammy winner will be a coach alongside series judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. A fourth coach will be named later, NBC network announced on Thursday, reports usmagazine.com.
"I'm so excited to join The Voice at NBC," the singer 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."
Clarkson has appeared frequently on the show in other roles, though. Back in 2015, she performed with both contestants Koryn Hawthorne and Meghan Linsey on the season eight finale. And in December last year, she sang a duet with contestant Billy Gilman.
"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," she said.
"I can't wait to turn my chair and see the faces of up-and-coming artistes and provide them with the help and support they've needed to break into the industry. Watch out, Shelton, I'm coming to win!"
