Kelly Clarkson will be returning for the 15th season of The Voice, but she won't be alone: Jennifer Hudson will also take the role of coach on the show.


The British singer will be making a comeback after leaving NBC's hit at the end of season 13. She was replaced by R&B diva Alicia Keys, who will be left out of next season's coaching panel.

The announcement was made by NBC through the show's Twitter page, a decision that might be controversial considering the issues between Hudson and Blake Shelton.

The country music singer never hid how much he disliked Hudson, with whom he used to argue constantly on the show. The two would go at each other's throats on and off camera.


Although Hudson, a former American Idol finalist, won the 2017 series of The Voice UK, Shelton believed that she was out of her element, like going from the little league to the big league.

But that wasn't Shelton's only complaint. He described Hudson as 'hard to work with 'and a 'diva' who craves attention and does what whatever she wants, whenever she wants.

Despite all of these issues, the producers of The Voice decided to give the pop singer another chance since she knows what it feels like to be a contestant and can bring some fire and attitude to the show.


When it comes to Clarkson, her contract was renewed thanks to the positive vibes that she brings to the coaching panel, as well as her incredible chemistry with Shelton and Adam Levine.

Clarkson is yet to win a season on the show, but she will be competing against her fellow judges in the upcoming semi-finals. The top 8 artists will be doing live performances for their coaches and partake in 'Special Duet Blends.'
