She is no stranger to musical competition shows - she won the first season of Fox's "American Idol".

In addition to The Voice landing superstar Kelly Clarkson for its 2018 season, The Voice Season 13 will feature noted American Idol alumnus Jennifer Hudson.

We would really like to hear your thoughts on Kelly's decision to join The Voice coaching panel. Jennifer Hudson and Miley Cyrus are already confirmed to be joining regulars Levine and Shelton this fall for the show's 13th season. Kelly Clarkson is joining The Voice for its 14th season, NBC announced on Thursday, May 11. ABC executives officially announced on Tuesday (May 9) that the network will be reviving the popular TV singing competition in 2018.

Shelton and Clarkson held a Facebook Live event on Shelton's Facebook page to reveal Clarkson's upcoming new role on The Voice. Now that Idol is returning on ABC, and even the super busy Ryan Seacrest is in talks to reclaim his hosting responsibilities, Clarkson seemed like a natural choice to start this new chapter in Idol's legacy. Clarkson was also a judge on ABC's short-lived singing competition "Duets".

As Voice fans know, Shelton has been the long-reigning champ of country singers on the show, but it looks like Clarkson is about to give Shelton a run for his money.

Kelly Clarkson, turn your chair around.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Clarkson has been a "Voice" adviser in previous years.

Clarkson added: "Watch out Shelton, I'm comin' to win!" Plus, with pal Shelton at her side, and Kelly Clarkson's notoriously sassy sense of humor, there should be excellent rapport between the judges which is always integral to the enjoyment of watching The Voice. "We are thrilled she has chosen to join us as a coach to mentor the next generation through our unique vocal boot camp", said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment.
