Jennifer Hudson has signed on as a new coach for The Voice for season 13 of the singing competition show, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
“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.”
The cast of Season 13 will see Hudson join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as well as Miley Cyrus, who will be making her return after first appearing as a coach last fall.
Season 13 will see The Voice competing against American Idol as the other singing competition show is making its comeback on ABC.
