Sadly, the Since U Been Gone songstress will NOT return to the show that made her famous, and will instead join their main competitor!
On Thursday, NBC announced Miz Clarkson is going to be a coach on the 14th season of The Voice alongside OGs Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. You can expect to see Kelly and a mystery fourth judge during the spring 2018 cycle. The 13th season will feature Shelton, Levine, Jennifer Hudson, and Miley Cyrus.
According to the musician:
“I’m so excited to join The Voice at NBC… 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!!”
All’s fair in love and war… and reality TV!
