Alicia Keys Joining 'The Voice' as a Coach
Alicia Keys will be taking a seat as one of The Voice's new judges.
Quickly following news Miley Cyrus will join NBC's The Voice next season as a new judge, Keys announced on Friday (March 25) she too will be joining the show in its 11th season.
While other singing competition shows such as American Idol have been known to keep the same judges over several seasons, The Voice regularly mixes up the talent sitting in its big red chairs, changing the on-air dynamic in the process. Other previous coaches include Cee Lo Green and Usher.
This formula could be key to The Voice's continued success. As the show rises in age, it continues to be an important part of NBC's primetime lineup during both its fall and spring cycles. The network has used the singing competition to launch original series like The Blacklist and, most recently, Blindspot. The 2016-17 TV season will be the first without The Voice's main rival, American Idol, which will leave the air in April.
