Kelly Clarkson joining 'The Voice' as coach for 14th season

Kelly Clarkson joining 'The Voice' as coach for 14th season

On Thursday, it was announced that Kelly Clarkson would become a coach on The Voice for season 14 with the fourth coach yet to be announced.

"I've been excited about this for a few years now - the timing hasn't been right", she explained. She's appeared on the show in some capacity over its time on air, as either performer or trusted adviser, but personally, I think she'll really shine as a judge. "Watch out Shelton, I'm comin' to win!"

American Idol casting is already in turmoil, with Kelly Ripa fearing that Ryan Seacrest is going to ditch her show to return to the rebooted show. "We are thrilled she has chosen to join us as a coach to mentor the next generation through our unique vocal boot camp", added Paul Telegdy, president of the alternative and reality group at NBC Entertainment.

What do you think about Kelly Clarkson joining The Voice?

Notably, American Idol and The Voice have been stiff rivals since the NBC show debuted in the U.S. in 2011. Oscar victor Jennifer Hudson, a top-10 finisher in Idol's third season, will appear on this fall's edition. CNN reported that Hudson, like Clarkson, are former competitors on American Idol. So, this fall it will be Jennifer Hudson, Miley Cyrus, me and the moron, Adam. In the past, Clarkson has also served as guest judge, and her positive personality and knowledge in the industry made her an effective one. She is now working on her seventh album, an R&B-influenced project that will be her first for Atlantic Records.

"The Voice" reportedly could not wait a lifetime to announce the news, perhaps releasing the announcement early to push back against ABC. Viewers can catch season 13 of The Voice on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Mondays and Tuesdays. ABC had revealed that they will be reviving "American Idol" and there were speculations that Clarkson will be in it as one of the main judges.
