With just two weeks remaining in season 12 of the hit singing competition reality series “The Voice”, plans are already being made for the upcoming fall season.
While coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have been a part of the show from the beginning, the coaches occupying the other tow chairs have changed with Cee Lo Green, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, Usher, Pharrell Williams, Mylie Cyrus, and Alicia Keys all taking their turn in one of the big red chairs.
When season 13 debuts in the fall a new coach will be joining the cast with Grammy, Academy, and BAFTA Award winning performer Jennifer Hudson. After being eliminated on “American Idol” in season three, Hudson went on to star in “Dreamgirls”. While it will be Hudson’s American debut on “The Voice”, it will not be her “The Voice” debut, Hudson appeared as a coach in season seven of the United Kingdom’s version of the show – where she was the winning coach.
With Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani taking a break from the show, Miley Cyrus returns for a second season. Cyrus made her debut in season eleven.
Speaking on the addition of Hudson to the show, Paul Telegdy, the NBC Entertainment president of alternative and reality, said, “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. 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.”
