For years she was branded the “Singing Budgie” derided for a supposed lack of talent. But sheer hard work paid off and while her success can be attributed to more than just vocals, few can deny her a rightful place in pop history.
The Voice will be her first regular TV talent show role and she joins returning coaches Tom Jones and will.i.am.
“I’m very excited to become a coach on The Voice UK. 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 UK gives us all a part to play in that. Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!” she said.
Mark Linsey, Controller Entertainment Commissioning, BBC, said: “Kylie is a hugely respected figure within the world of music and will be a fantastic addition to The Voice UK. She is a true pop icon and her longevity in the industry is testament to her creative and musical ability.”
The remaining 4th coach is yet to be announced.
