Next season Keys will take on Coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and first-timer Kelly Clarkson. NBC confirmed this week that Alicia Keys will return to the 14th season of NBC’s four-time Emmy Award winning musical competition series “The Voice,” and fans should be happy to see the popular Coach return to her chair. Keys will be joined by Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson, who will be making her coaching debut on the new season. This will mark Keys’ third time as a coach and she triumphantly returns as a champion. Her artist Chris Blue was named “The Voice” when she last coached in season 12.
“We are thrilled to welcome back Alicia’s positive energy, competitive spirit and sheer talent. She brings unparalleled expertise and has proven she knows how to help artists win,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “The chemistry between Alicia, Kelly, Adam and Blake will make for a wildly unpredictable and compelling season 14!”
In addition to capturing 15 Grammys for her musical talents, Keys is also an actress, New York Times best-selling author, entrepreneur and activist and powerful force in the global fight against HIV and AIDS.
