Kelly Clarkson Shakes Up Season 13 of “The Voice” as Key Advisor


After being announced as a judge, along side Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton, for next season (Season 14) of NBC’s “The Voice,” Kelly Clarkson is visiting the set to get her feet wet as a key advisor.

Clarkson will be joining coaches Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as a mentor to the remaining artists during the knockout rounds.

“I love being an advisor, the one time I did it for Blake years ago—I think it was the second season— I really just enjoyed it. I think I’m a good example to show them of what could happen—what could really come to fruition at the end of this road,” Clarkson said of her advisory role. “I was really excited to be a key advisor on this season just because I’m [a judge] next season. So I was kind of warming up the chair and pressing the button. I’m very excited about it, so It’s fun to come and have a little rehearsal for it.”

The 35-year-old mother of two is no stranger to talent competitions. Clarkson won the inaugural season of “American Idol” in 2002, beating out Justin Guarini. She has since gone on to release seven studio albums, garnering several Top 10 hits including, “A Moment Like This,” “Since U Been Gone” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).”

Kelly will be releasing her new album Meaning of Life, on Friday, October 27.

“The Voice: The Knockouts” airs on Monday, Oct. 30 at 8:00pm EST/7:00pm CST
