Two American Idols alum are part of NBC's singing competition. The announcement has been made final that Kelly Clarkson will join "The Voice" season 14 as coach alongside Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. NBC announced on Thursday that season 14 will premiere on the spring of 2018. This news comes shortly after it was also revealed that her fellow American Idol, Jennifer Hudson, is also part of the season 13 coaching panel together with Shelton, Levine, and Miley Cyrus.

Clarkson is set to be the third coach of season 14

Shelton broke the news of the casting of the coaching panel via Facebook Live on Thursday while he appeared on FaceTime with Clarkson.

The American Idol season one winner joked like this, "Hey, I'm finally not knocked up and I can join your show."

Apparently, this isn't the first time for Clarkson to be an advising artist on "The Voice" since she also served as a guest mentor to Shelton's team back in season 2. Further, she has been in long-simmering talks about the possibility of joining the singing competition for its upcoming season.

Further, Clarkson has been approached by the production a lot of times in the past but she has not been able to work since the production cycle hasn't fit her schedule. But as season 14 of "The Voice" is set to premiere by 2018, Clarkson will likely be seen spinning her chair on the studio.

NBC to relaunch 'American Idol'

Apart from being one of "The Voice" season 14 coaching panel, NBC is also eyeing Clarkson as judge of its upcoming relaunch for the "American Idol." There is a possible return for Clarkson on "Idol" since she has been the winner of the singing competition for the first season back in 2002.
