Jennifer Hudson has a new gig and it’s on a platform that she’s no stranger to: a reality television singing competition. The former American Idol contestant, now Oscar-winner, has joined Season 13 of The Voice as a coach, Variety reports.
Hudson, who served as the winning coach on the U.K. edition of The Voice earlier this year, will join Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as coaches.
“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 Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of NBC’s alternative and reality group. “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.”
Congrats, Jennifer! We’ll be tuned in.
