The Voice has announced two new recruits!
Starting next season, Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus take a seat on the show’s spinning chairs.
NBC revealed that the singers will serve as coaches on the next instalment of the talent-search (which has ironically not yielded a single star).
It continues the series tradition of switching up panelists between each of the show’s two seasons a year.
Keys will replace Pharrell Williams, while Cyrus will warm up the seat left vacant by Gwen Stefani – who’ll be promoting her new album. Blake Shelton and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, who have appeared on every season since 2011, will remain.
Beyond the obvious platform it provides the new additions to plug upcoming music, it’s a win for all involved. Why? Because, many of the ingoing and outgoing “coaches” share management, labels, and sometimes both. Needless to say, those 360 and manager percentages must look real cute.
In any case, what do you think about the latest Voice panelists?
For us, it could be a good look for Keys, who clearly needs “something” to re-endear to her to the public. She’s credible, talented, and knows her stuff. All factors which could and should benefit her cause.
As for Miley, we couldn’t care less.
