The Australian singer has signed up to star opposite Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am on the British version of the popular singing show, confirming months of rumors linking her to a position on the BBC series. Minogue confirmed the news in a post on Twitter, writing, "I'm excited to announce that I'll be coaching on BBC The Voice UK next season!"
She adds in a statement, "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."
Sir Tom Jones will also be on the panel for the third season of the show.
