Kelly Clarkson Named New Coach for ‘The Voice’
“The Voice” finally sealed the deal and landed famous pop star Kelly Clarkson as the new coach for its 2018 cycle after trying multiple times to get her in the past.
Sadly, for the American Idol reboot, Clarkson’s “yes” to “The Voice” meant that any possibility that Kelly will be joining AI in its re-launch on ABC has disappeared. Kelly has been reported being wooed by American Idol in the past weeks to be one of the judges in its upcoming relaunch.
In an exclusive report by Variety, Clarkson, the famous Season 1 “American Idol” champion, will be joining long-time coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine and will most likely be spinning her chair at the same time American Idol is making its comeback.
Clarkson is not only the first winner of the American reality singing competition but she is also one of “Idol”’s top alumni. Her debut single “A Moment Like This” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and became the best-selling single of 2002 in the United States.
She was also a critically-acclaimed songwriter. All her songs were well-received, selling more than 25 million albums and 36 million singles worldwide. She also scored more than 100 Number-Ones on the Billboard Charts and earned numerous awards including three Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and many others.
About joining “The Voice”, Clarkson said that she is “excited to join ‘The Voice’ at NBC.” She added “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 the 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!”
