Rather than the bits of gossip that Kelly Clarkson would join American Idol as a judge, the “Since You’ve Been Gone” vocalist is set to join NBC’s The Voice for Season 14.
The Grammy-winning Singer will join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on the 14th season of the talent competition series, which will air in the spring of 2018, as indicated by Variety. A fourth mentor has not been resolved right now, however, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson are confirmed to join the show on the thirteenth 13th season airing this fall.
I’m so eager to join The Voice at NBC,” Clarkson said. “We’ve backpedaled and forward about a part as a coach for a years, however the planning hasn’t been ideal as of not long ago. I have constantly loved showing up on the show as a adviser or entertainer and built up an astounding relationship with the network during my Christmas special. I can hardly wait to turn my seat and see the faces of best in class artists and provide them with the help and support they’ve expected to break into the industry. Keep an eye out Shelton, I’m comin’ to win!!”
Clarkson choosing to join The Voice was an especially interesting move given that American Idol, the show that initially impelled her to stardom, will probably be airing in the meantime. Kelly Clarkson is one of American Idol’s best alums with a string of hit singles including “Stronger,” “Piece by Piece,” and “Heartbeat Song.”Paul Telegdy, the President of NBC Entertainment’s option and reality group, stood up about marking Clarkson.”Kelly has been a part of The Voice family for many years as a adviser and performer. We are excited she has gone along with us as a mentor to coach the cutting edge through our one of a kind vocal training camp,” Telegdy said. “Each time Kelly Clarkson sings you are reminded what a mind boggling voice truly is. We are anticipating the sound of Kelly Clarkson on The Voice.”
