Miley Cyrus Is Joining 'The Voice' As A Coach -- And She’s ‘Gonna Go Off’
Gear up, fans of the The Voice -- your fave show is about to get a makeover of Miley-sized proportions.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Miley Cyrus is joining the NBC singing competition’s upcoming 11th season as a coach. She’ll replace Gwen Stefani as the show’s de facto female presence, joining current stars Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams.
Miley confirmed the news on Twitter Friday evening, writing, “It's true! I am going to be the newest judge on Season 11 of The Voice @nbcthevoice #thevoice.”
She also posted the same pic on Instagram, adding, “watch me mentor and then season 11 shit is gonna go offffff! I can't wait!”
As THR points out, Christina Aguilera has taken every other season off as a coach in recent years, with another female star assuming her spot. First Shakira occupied Xtina's red chair, then it was Stefani, and now Miley’s on deck.
News of Miley’s new role comes just days before her debut on the current season of The Voice, on which she’ll serve as a key advisor, mentoring all four groups of contestants. So at least she’ll have plenty of practice before assuming her full-time role next season.
