Kelly Clarkson Joins NBC's 'The Voice'
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Three-time Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson is set to join NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice” as a key adviser for the Season 13 Knockout Rounds beginning Monday, Oct. 30 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).
As a key adviser, Clarkson will work with and mentor the remaining 32 artists with coaches Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The Knockout Rounds continue Monday, Nov. 6 (8-10 p.m.) and Tuesday, Nov. 7 (8-9 p.m.).
As previously announced, Clarkson will return to “The Voice” in season 14 in her new role as coach alongside returning coaches Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.
The acclaimed singer/songwriter will release her highly anticipated new album “Meaning of Life”, the first for Atlantic Records, on Friday, Oct. 27. “Meaning of Life” is the album Clarkson was destined to make with Atlantic, a collection of smart and sensual soul-inspired pop that immediately belongs among the legendary label’s classic canon. For her eighth studio album – and follow-up to 2015’s chart-topping “Piece By Piece” – Clarkson united a stellar team of top songwriters and producers to collaborate, among them past collaborators Jason Halbert, Jesse Shatkin and Grammy-winning Producer of the Year Greg Kurstin, as well as first-time collaborators Mick Schultz, The Monarch and Nick Ruth, among others.
Clarkson is among the most popular artists of this or any other era, with total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 36 million singles. The Texas-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter first came to fame in 2002 as the winner of the inaugural season of “American Idol.” Clarkson’s debut single, “A Moment Like This,” followed and quickly went to #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, ultimately ranking as the year’s best-selling single in the U.S. “Thankful,” Clarkson’s 2003 debut album, made its debut atop the SoundScan/Billboard 200 on its way to 2x platinum certification from the RIAA.
