Forget 'American Idol': Kelly Clarkson Joins 'The Voice' as Judge

"Every time Kelly Clarkson sings you are reminded what an incredible voice really is". Season 14 of The Voice won't air until 2018; the show is now wrapping up Season 12, with Season 13 scheduled for later this year.

On Thursday, it was announced that Kelly Clarkson would become a coach on The Voice for season 14 with the fourth coach yet to be announced. No one is tied up with the "Idol" name than Ryan Seacrest and its first season victor Kelly Clarkson.

"I'm so excited to join "The Voice" at NBC," Variety reported Clarkson said in a statement.

She said she always loved appearing on the show as an adviser and a performer and she had a great relationship with the network. "I read the GRAMMYs we're coming to NY", he explained.

NBC announced this past Wednesday that musical artist, Jennifer Hudson, will be a coach on the upcoming 13th season of The Voice this fall.

A lot of fans believe that 35-year-old Kelly Clarkson would be the flawless choice for the new and improved "American Idol" reboot. The superstar singers joked they'd been trying to put the deal together for years, but Kelly kept getting pregnant.

Kelly Clarkson is reportedly being courted by ABC to judge American Idol's revival.

In addition to "Live with Kelly and Ryan", Seacrest has a daily iHeart Radio program, hosts gigs for E!, and fronts the New Year's Eve show on ABC.

This won't be Clarkson's first experience on The Voice, as she previously served as a guest mentor on the show's second season in 2012 and performing on the 11th season finale in 2016. And Clarkson hasn't done too badly either; she's sold over 25 million albums, racked up three Grammys, gotten married, had two kids, and seems blissfully happy in all her success.

A press release states the network has already closed an agreement with "Idol" producers FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment to revive the fan-favorite series at its new ABC home. This spring marks the 12th season for The Voice.

The source added that it's entirely possible to do "American Idol" from NY where Ryan Seacrest tapes "Live" during the week.
