New female coaches invigorate ‘The Voice’

Singing a new tune as it returns exclusively to StarWorld on Sept. 20, The Voice will be featuring two new judges for its 11th season. 

Joining singers Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as judges are R&B diva Alicia Keys and pop superstar Miley Cyrus, thus, making this season the first ever with two female judges on the panel. Host Carson Daly also returns to present this exciting reality competition for the 11th year straight.

Alicia and Miley are set to inject the The Voice with fresh enthusiasm, with both performers bringing years of experience in the entertainment business as well as having distinct personalities that will complement that of Levine and Shelton well. 

Although Miley’s wild-child persona initially seems at odds with Alicia’s sophisticated cool, the two artists have the skills and professionalism to offer contestants solid advice when it comes to performing and developing their vocal talents. 

Alicia and Miley are replacing Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera on the coaching panel for this season, packing the panel with a feminine power that will appeal to a wide audience and inspire more female singers to come to the fore.

Both Alicia and Miley are familiar to fans of The Voice because they appeared on the show on previous seasons: Alicia served as an advisor for Team Pharrell in the Battle rehearsals in Season 7, while Miley was chosen to be key advisor for the Knockout rehearsals in Season 10. Their increased role in the show puts them in a position to not only determine the best young singers in the US but to also groom them for potentially successful careers in entertainment, lending their expertise and giving them tips for navigating the highly competitive global music industry. Helping the judges develop the talents of their teams as mentors for the Battle Rounds are revered musical artists, including veteran singer Bette Midler for Team Blake, rock legend Sammy Hagar for Team Adam, YouTube success story Charlie Puth for Team Alicia, and rock goddess Joan Jett for Team Miley.

The Voice Season 11 premieres on Sept. 20 live via satellite at 1 p.m., with two primetime encores at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.. Catch new episodes every Tuesday and Wednesday live exclusively on StarWorld.
