Three-time Grammy Award victor Kelly Clarkson is set to join NBC's "The Voice" for the show's 14th season, NBC announced Thursday.

There's seriously no one more flawless, or even qualified, to be a judge on the singing competition, and NBC Entertainment's Alternative and Reality Group president Paul Telegdy clearly caught that memo.

The singer who rose to fame on Season 3 of American Idol (which will is getting a revival on ABC), shared the news on Instagram Wednesday evening with her almost two million followers.

In addition to her music career, Hudson's been busy on stage and in films. She was a recurring character on NBC's Smash and starred in the peacock network's production of Hairspray Live! last winter.

Just as troubling as the lack of pucks they've sent Holtby's way over the last two games is where those pucks have come from. The Pittsburgh Penguins registered their first shot on goal with around 9 minutes to go in the opening period.

Speaking to Variety, NBC's President of the Alternative and Reality Group Paul Telegdy revealed a brief and concise backgrounder on Jennifer Hudson's The Voice coaching career. This will be Cyrus' second time coaching, after first joining the show in Season 11. Hudson just released a new single, "Remember Me". "I feel like it's nearly like a hobby", she said.

J-Hud had previously been told by Simon Cowell when she appeared on American Idol back in 2004 that she was "out of her depth" but it would appear that this woman has only just got started. Despite getting eliminated extremely early in her season, she went on to become a household name thanks to her Oscar-winning role in "Dreamgirls".

She also makes the ideal coach as she has been through a similar process on American Idol. "The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Jay Bienstock, Lee Metzger, Chad Hines, Kyra Thompson and Amanda Zucker".
