It is official. Kelly Clarkson has decided to leave the Voice after serving as coach for 8 Seasons and winning 4 of them.
After months and months of waiting to learn how The Voice’s coaching lineup would shake out for the upcoming season fans now know what new and familiar faces will be around Blake Shelton in the new episodes. Hours after Gwen Stefani was announced as a replacement for Ariana Grande, it was revealed that fan-fave and multi-champ, Kelly Clarkson will indeed be bowing out of the new season. She had already said that she would be devoting more time to her talk show’s redevelopment and to her kids as well. But thankfully, we already know who was tapped to replace Clarkson.
Former show mentor and Cinderella star Camila Cabello has been tapped to take over the fourth chair for Season 22 in lieu of Kelly Clarkson. The pop star helped break the news on TikTok with a video that The Voice shared on Twitter, which helped make things fully official. Check it out!
Fans will almost definitely remember that Camila Cabello lent her pop-friendly expertise to The Voice in Season 21 when she served as the Battle Round advisor for John Legend’s team. That certainly wasn’t her only past experience with a reality singing competition, considering she first struck fame in the UK via The X Factor, where she and others formed the popular group Fifth Harmony, before she exited in 2016.
The Voice has yet to reveal when it will return for Season 22, but fans can expect to see it hitting the NBC schedule later this year.
