The fall cycle of The Voice will be a veritable American Idol fest as OG winner Kelly Clarkson, and season 3 alum Jennifer Hudson return to coach the NBC singing show this fall. They will join veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on the panel.

Coming off their successful debut seasons on The Voice, current season 14 coach, three-time Grammy Award winner and 2018 Billboard Music Awards host Kelly Clarkson and season 13 coach and Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson will reclaim their red chairs on season 15 of The Voice. Kelly and Jennifer will compete against Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine and country music superstar Blake Shelton.

The four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series will return to the NBC lineup in the fall as the next batch of talented artists vie for the title of The Voice.

“We are so excited to welcome back Kelly and Jennifer, two dynamic forces who bring undeniable soul, passion and inspiration as coaches,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “They each have a unique understanding of what it’s like to be in the artists’ shoes  (Yeah….because they were both contestants on that Show-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named…). Bringing these two voices together with Blake and Adam for season 15 is sure to make this one of our best seasons yet!”

On Monday, May 14 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT), Kelly continues on her quest to win her first season as a coach alongside fellow coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton during the Semi-Finals round. The Top 8 artists will perform live in front of their coaches, which will also feature “Special Duet Blends.”

Jennifer has also served as a coach on the U.K. version of The Voice twice, winning her first season on the series.
