Jennifer Hudson is replacing Alicia Keys on The Voice

The Voice is shaking things up next season!

Alicia Keys is out, and in her place, the one and only Miss Jennifer Hudson! We don’t know about you, but we’re pretty excited”!

“Jennifer is an extraordinary vocal talent and one of the premier voices of our time,” said Paul Telegdy of NBC Entertainment.

“She embodies the experience, expertise, positivity and sheer talent that The Voice stands for.

“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.”

We couldn’t agree more. Keen The Voice viewers may already be aware of J-Hud’s coach skills, as she served as coach on the UK version of the show earlier this year. Oh yeah, and she won! No biggie…

Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, as far as we know, will continue to serve as coaches in the new season which kicks off later this year.
