There's a new coach coming to The Voice. American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson has signed on for season 13 of the NBC singing competition series. Additionally, Season 13 will see Miley Cyrus return for her second run as a coach, joining Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and host Carson Daly.
Cyrus made her debut last fall alongside Levine, Shelton and Alicia Keys, who is appearing on the current edition. Hudson's casting comes as The Voice prepares to once again face-off against longtime opponent American Idol, which ABC will revive sometime in the 2017-18 season.
Hudson competed on the third season of Idol in 2004. She was shockingly voted off in week seven, but went onto sign a record deal with Arista Records later that year. She won an Oscar for her performance as Effie White in the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls, and her other subsequent film roles include Sex and the City, The Secret Life of Bees and Chi-Raq. A two-time Grammy winner, she has also released three studio albums. She just released a new single, "Remember Me."
Cyrus recently appeared on the cover of Billboard magazine in which she discussed her "rootsy" new album, Malibu, and her recent decision to stop smoking weed. "I’m not doing drugs, I’m not drinking, I’m completely clean right now. That was just something that I wanted to do."
