Hudson will join Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine, Carson Daily and Blake Shelton as the season 13 coaches. Hudson already knows her team name: #teamjhud.
The multitalented Jennifer Hudson started her career as a finalist on season three of American Idol. At the time, Hudson told MTV that she felt robbed when she was booted from Idol. Fast forward to 2016, Hudson landed herself a seat in the coach’s chair on U.K.’s version of The Voice. Hudson won in her first season as a coach across the pond! Hudson told Variety in 2016, “Discovering new artists has always been important to me.”
The new season of The Voice premieres this fall on NBC.
