American Idol and three-time Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson is set to take on the job of coaching singers on season 14 of The Voice. Clarkson will be joining returning coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on the 14th season of the popular competition series, with the remaining coach to be named at a later date.
On May 10, 2017, NBC announced the coaching panel for season 13 would consist of Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus, and Jennifer Hudson. Season 13 will air this fall, with season 14 arriving in 2018.
“I’m so excited to join The Voice at NBC,” said Clarkson. “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!!”
“Kelly has been a part of The Voice family for many years as an adviser and performer. We are thrilled she has chosen to join us as a coach to mentor the next generation through our unique vocal boot camp,” stated Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “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.”
