Jennifer Hudson joining ‘The Voice’ for Season 13

Season 13 premieres this fall

Jennifer Hudson will join Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as a coach on season 13 of NBC’s three-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice. The 13th season will begin this fall.

“Jennifer is an extraordinary vocal talent and one of the premier voices of our time. She embodies the experience, expertise, positivity and sheer talent that The Voice stands for,” states Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “Her exceptional skills as a singer and actress have extended to film, television and Broadway, which makes her an incredible addition and a natural fit for our show.”

Hudson recently released her new single, “Remember Me,” which she co-wrote with Jamie Hartman.

Hudson is a passionate fan of The Voice having served as a coach on the U.K. version earlier this year and winning her first season on the series.

Last December Hudson starred as Motormouth Maybelle on NBC’s Hairspray Live!, where she gave a powerful rendition of “I Know Where I’ve Been,” for which she received rave reviews.

Hudson’s incredible vocal talents were first recognized with her appearance on the third season of American Idol in 2004, where she impressed both the show’s judges and a national TV audience. ABC has just announced the revival of American Idol, premiering in 2018.
