From The Voice UK blog:

Kylie Minogue, will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones have been confirmed as Coaches on series three of The Voice UK.

Grammy award winner Kylie has had worldwide record sales of more than 68 million and was give an O.B.E. for services to music. With ten world tours, eleven successful albums and over 50 hit singles internationally, Kylie is well placed to use her expertise to find and nurture new and exciting vocal talent.

Kylie said: “I’m very excited to become a Coach on The Voice. I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series. The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice gives us all a part to play in that. Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!”

Wil.i.am briefly considered joining the American Idol judges panel, but negotiations broked down over money. The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue has also left the show. His replacement has not yet been named.

    Awesome, now I can finally watch it, just wish that Kylie was AI judge instead of J.Hoe (well, I would take anyone over her)

    Unfortunately Kylie Minogue is a big international popstar everywhere but in North America. Just like Robbie Williams. Her younger sister Dannii is judging Simon Cowell’s shows.

    Wait for the fourth one, I reckon they should have 2 female coaches now. The last one should be either Jamelia(she just left the Ireland one after 1 season), Estelle, Adele or even Katherine Jenkins.
