Kylie Minogue to join ‘The Voice UK’
"I'm very excited," the legendary Aussie singer said in the official announcement. "I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series."
It looks like her new job could be bringing out some sibling rivalry as sister Danni Minogue has been a mentor on rival talent show, ‘The X Factor UK,’ in past seasons and is a judge on the currently airing Aussie version of the series.
"Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!" she exclaimed.
Returning coach will.i.am shared his excitement of having some fresh blood come into the series.
“While I will miss Danny and Jessie, I’m excited to be returning for Season 3 and to work with Kylie and Tom," he said. "Together we will mix it up and bring new energy and ideas to the show."
Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones agreed with his sentiments and commented: “I’m really looking forward to series three of The Voice UK and although I’ll miss Jessie and Danny, Kylie and the fourth coach will be a welcome addition to the lineup.”
The fourth coach is still to be announced, but the series will begin airing in the UK in January 2014.
