Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson Returning to 'The Voice'
NBC's The Voice has firmed up its fall coach roster, with recent additions Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson returning for the singing competition's 15th cycle.
Both singers — two of the more famous alums of American Idol — will take a seat in the swivel chairs with mainstays Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. (That means no immediate return for past coaches Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani or Christina Aguilera.)
“We are so excited to welcome back Kelly and Jennifer, two dynamic forces who bring undeniable soul, passion and inspiration as coaches” Paul Telegdy, president of NBC Entertainment's alternative and reality group, said Thursday in a statement. “They each have a unique understanding of what it’s like to be in the artists’ shoes. Bringing these two voices together with Blake and Adam for season 15 is sure to make this one of our best seasons yet."
