There’s a new coach coming to The Voice.
Oscar winner and American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson has signed on for season 13 of the NBC singing competition series, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Cyrus made her debut last fall alongside Levine, Shelton and Alicia Keys, who is appearing on the current edition.
“Jennifer is an extraordinary vocal talent and one of the premier voices of our time. She embodies the experience, expertise, positivity and sheer talent that The Voice stands for,” said NBC Entertainment alternative and reality group president Paul Telegdy. “Her exceptional skills as a singer and actress have extended to film, television and Broadway, which makes her an incredible addition and a natural fit for our show.”
