Kelly Clarkson joining 'The Voice' as coach for 14th season

Kelly Clarkson joining 'The Voice' as coach for 14th season

Clarkson will join longtime coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine for the 14th season. Despite winning American Idol back in Season 1, easily beating runner-up Justin Guarini, it seems Kelly decided not to gamble on the rumored offer to be part of the American Idol reboot and instead went with The Voice which continues to soar in ratings. You can expect to see Kelly and a mystery fourth judge during the spring 2018 cycle.

Shelton announced the news with a Facebook live, where he called up his future competitor up on FaceTime. "Every time Kelly Clarkson sings you are reminded what an incredible voice really is".

The move is a blow to ABC, who earlier this week confirmed plans to revive "American Idol" after just one year off the air.

"I know I'm done having children, so now I can join The Voice", Clarkson shot back. The busy singer has expressed interest in the past, but has never been able to make coaching on the show fit with her busy touring and recording schedule.

Clarkson has appeared frequently on the show in other roles, though.

For me the most important thing now is to win. "I have always believed in the ability that I have got", Moses reflected. Chelsea will seal the league title with a win over West Bromwich Albion on Friday.

"I'm so excited to join "The Voice" at NBC", Clarkson said (quote via Variety). That's because she has abandoned her old singing competition show in favor of NBC's The Voice, making this the most vicious slam in singing competition show history-or at least since the last time Simon Cowell made somebody cry by saying something mean.

Clarkson has previously appeared on the show as an adviser and also performed. With this announcement, that scenario is likely off the table (for now) as season 14 of The Voice will likely resume when Idol begins.

Clarkson added: "Watch out Shelton, I'm comin' to win!"
